Colorverse inks seem to have just shown up to the scene.  They are from South Korea and are a little pricey, but my experience so far is very good.  The colors are very vibrant and seem to be pretty well behaved so far.  What follows is my ink review of Colorverse Quasar, which is one of my favorite colors.... burple.  I absolutely LOVE burples of all shapes and sizes.  I hope you enjoy the review.  I'd love to hear what everyone thinks.

Thank you for the review, this is a nice ink, but as you mentioned, pricey.

I also like burples very much (as opposed to mostly disliking teal leaning inks).

Which other burples would you recommend? my favourite is Diamine Bilberry, and I usually stay away from Noodlers (too saturated and generally not easy to find here in EU)

Thanks for the review! I do love this ink. I zeroed in on it from all of the Colorverse colors. It looks a lot like another ink I really love, Parker Penman Blue. It seems to be much better behaved however.

I have the mini bottle of this ink in a trade.

 

thoroughly unimpressed for the price. It's not great behaved, it smears a bit, it's more purple than blue, overall just so meh on it for the monstrous amount of money they ask.

 

if it was $10-12 for 50mL, I'd have much nicer things to say, but it's an ultra premium ink at that price, and the performance doesn't matc.

I really enjoy Colorverse inks, although I dislike their practice of putting in small bottles of differing colors. Great review, and Quasar is a really nice color.
