Apparently this year I have given in to my inner 5-year old and trying all things pink and purple. I also managed to acquire a Sailor special edition Sweet Pink Love earlier this year, and wanted to try and match ink to pen. So a while ago I purchased Diamine Hope Pink (30ml for $7.50).
Hope Pink is a sweet bubble gum pink. It is bright, and very very pink, but not neon colored. In fact, it tends more towards a raspberry in dark applications.
I get a bit of yellow sheen to the darkest spots, and lots of yummy shading.
The ink performed well in my pen, and was lovely to write with. I also confirmed via Diamine’s website that proceeds from the sale of Hope Pink are donated in support of breast cancer research.
In comparison to other pink fountain pen inks, Hope Pink is very similar to Bungubox Sweet Love Pink, which was the ink designed by Sailor to match the limited edition pen.
Do you need some sweet pinks in your life?
