PROS
  • Really cool bottle - they all stack together in a really neat way.
  • Solid, heavy bottle. A good paperweight.
  • Not SUPER pink - it's kind of dark, so I think more people can use it.
  • Shades pretty well.
  • Although it's somewhat red, it doesn't stain terribly and is of medium difficulty to clean (on a random, completely non-quantifiable scale).

CONS
  • No water resistance.
  • A terrible bottle mouth design - a very heavy metal cap with metal threads, and a glass bottle mouth with glass threads? I've chipped more than one of these threads before. Be careful. 
  • This stuff is expensive.

OVERALL

I think "Divine Pink" is not a very accurate name for this ink - it seems more red to me than pink! However, it behaves pretty well and shades nicely. It's also dark and legible, and the bottle is really neat.

I received this item free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
