So, I popped into Muji the other day and saw these instore. I had originally scoped them out online but chose not to order online as the delivery charge is a bit extortionate for a few pens! Anyway, they are Muji Erasable Pens and retail at £2 each. They had them in eight colours: dark blue, light blue, pink, red, purple, green, orange and black.
With the popularity of erasable pens within the stationery community, I thought it'd be a good idea to review these seeing as this is also my first foray into this world.
I chose three colours out of the eight: dark blue, light blue and pink. I actually really want the purple, red, green and orange too but can't justify it at the moment cos the colours I most need to be erased are usually blue or pink!
Here is the sticker on the pink pen (but it's the same on the light and dark blue ones).
And this is how they look when written with:
As a big fan of Muji pens and a longtime user of their gel ones, I was not disappointed with how wonderful it was to write with the pens. They flow well, the colour is decent but not overpowering - how I like my pens to be; and they also look good when not in use!
Next, the erasing of each of the colours.
You can see that the dark blue left behind a little bit of the imprint; you can see the word 'test' still.
However, the light blue didn't leave anything behind...
And neither did the pink.
Overall, I'm impressed with these pens and I'm considering investing in all of the colours but at £2, they are a bit steep so I'm going to wait til I'm next in Hong Kong or til someone I know goes so I can *hopefully* get them for cheaper. I haven't used the Frixion ones though which are the ones getting the best reviews on the internet but I have to say, these Muji ones are pretty good! And plus, they also look very pretty on your table and in your hand! I guess the minimalism aspect of Muji items has a 'je ne sais quoi' about them :)
NB: Excuse my French - I've not used it since my GCSE days which feel like an eternity ago now and I'm not entirely sure if that is right :)
