PROS
  • Affordable.
  • A "reasonable" amount of ink if you enjoy using different colors.
  • This one reminds me a lot of Lamy Vibrant Pink but without the particles in it (and not a special edition that will disappear forever). 
  • Great shading.
  • Some sheen but it suits the ink well.

CONS
  • Careful with cleaning - the red/pink color may stain. 
OVERALL

Fair price. I'm happy and surprised to see how similar this ink color is to Lamy Vibrant Pink. The Lamy is a special edition and will disappear at some point, and it also has some particles that not everyone enjoys. Myrtle offers you that color, shading, and sheen without the particles. The pink can stain porous items so just watch your cleaning.

PROS
  • Easy to store bottles.
  • The label on top of the cap shows a smear of the ink so it's easy to see the color at a glance.
  • Simple packaging, which I appreciate. Little waste.
  • Shades well.
  • Well-behaved.
  • Gorgeous color for artwork.

CONS
  • Not an inexpensive ink. 
  • No water resistance.
OVERALL

I am a big fan of Robert Oster inks. I enjoy their saturation, shading, simple bottles that are easy to fill from, and they're well-behaved. Astorquiza Rot is named after a lovely woman I am honored to call a friend, and I think this is a truly stunning color.

I received this item free of charge because I bought something like ten inks from BauerInks.ca and she wanted to give me a gift! I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
