Welcome back, everybody!

It’s been a bit of a hectic week, I apologize about the late entry. I promise it’s going to be worth it as we’re announcing two winners tonight as well as giving away a 10ml vial of the ink in question after a short overview!

Details & Behaviour

This is a surprise for me. The colour itself was pretty boring, but it proved to be worth the purchase. It’s just as watery as Lie de Thé, but offers just as much variation… Which for me is honestly a great thing, aside from the awful dry time (so for you on the go, this is probably not a great one if you’re taking a quick note.) It’s so light and watery you can barely make out the test. Even at ten seconds, there seems to be little drying happening. That variation is not bad though. It reminds me of a city blanketed in overcast, and has turned out to be one of my favourite greys.

Variations & Prices

Just as with Lie de Thé , bottles of 10ml, 30ml and individual cartridges are available.

You can expect store prices to be around:

$15CDN and $11USD for the 30ml

$6.50CDN for the 10ml

$5CDN for a tin of the cartridges

The Verdict: Not Too Shabby!

✧ These earn 3.5/5 Stars! ✧

(Great for those days when you’re inspired by overcast and the buzz of city streets.)

Pros:

  • Fairly decent shading
  • Reminiscent of a grey variant of Lie de Thé in behaviour

Cons:

  • Less than desirable drying time/absorption
  • Fairly bland

I’m pleasantly surprised by this ink. If you’re looking for a light grey with fantastic variation, this is a great choice.
