Diamine sent me samples of their latest 12 shimmer inks to try out, and I've had 12 pens inked with them for over a week now.

 
So here is a quick look at the colours. Maybe I should have separated Caramel Sparkle and Pink Glitz as they look a little similar next to each other, on this sheet. However, Caramel Sparkle is a reddish brown and Pink Glitz is a pinkish red. I'm loving the green, orange and silver. :) Anyway, this is just a quick look.

I like the Lilac Satin.  I have lots of pens worthy of an ink like this.

Several of these inks look quite interesting.  Looking forward to seeing full reviews.  

Thanks for posting.

I like the looks of Pink Glitz, Lilac Satin, and Moon Dust so far.  I actually like these better than the first series.


The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

I think Moon Dust will be popular. I remember thinking that, because it was a potential possible for the first series, but it didn't make it as one of the ten. It's a great silver ink.  :)

 

I like Golden Oasis and Inferno Orange. However, I'm really not sure that Golden Oasis automatically makes me think of a green ink. Is it just me?

Interesting. Thank you for sharing.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I have done my 12 reviews, but as Bhavna has already posted some, I will wait a while before posting mine.

 

My early findings are that these 12 inks are all quite wet. They are all great starters.  :)
