I'm set on getting a model 456 from their Etsy shop, but the colours currently available aren't really my first choice, and restocking seems to be taking a long time. The pink acrylic, Marshmallow, still looks most fun out of all of them, but those are, of course, well-lit promo photos, and I can't find any reviews showing the acrylic (in any model) under more realistic conditions.

To those of you who have the acrylic, are you happy? Is it more pastel rosé, or a really eye-searing Barbie pink? Photos would be much appreciated!

I don't have an answer for you, but I've also had a hard time knowing what some PenBBS models colors look like from the pictures. The finishes also can look a little different depending on lighting.

youtube recommendations works well today, only yesterday watched this thread and readed that you are looking for this color, and here today got recommendation with same pen https://youtu.be/H1fBoFMsCho?t=600 model 309 in same acrylic in this video, if timecode will not work it's right from 10 minute, tho for a small time only =(
not sure under which light conditions you want to see this acrylic but hope this will helps, cannot call it "well-lit promo video" because it's definitely just sun conditions.

the product number for this pen should be ***-47sf, couldn't find better photos/videos of someone having it on hand, but maybe you will.

Honestly, I have yet to get a penbbs acrylic that didn't look even better in person.

They look amazing in natural light!

 

If you like pink with some translucence to see the ink sloshing around inside, you should love the Marshmallow.

I don't even like pink and I've been tempted by it.

This Google Doc might help: https://docs.google....eniPRTnwuGgOCCU as I can't seem to upload photos here at the moment.
