Aren’t samples great? They can keep you from making a costly mistake, or make you wish that you had a bottle in hand. This ink, Bungubox Sweet Love Pink, is definitely the latter. I received a sample from a lovely friend whom I met over a mutual love of FPs.
Unfortunately I do not have a pretty bottle to take a photo of, but I can assure you that if I did, it would come in the standard Bungubox black/gold packaging with the Sailor miser bottle.
For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M600 Black, its a reliable writer that quite frankly doesn’t get enough time out of the pen box.
The color looks amazing on this nib!
Line going down on 68GSM Tomoe:
Just look at that pretty golden sheen! Seriously its love. The color itself is a very BRIGHT pink, I would almost say that in the lower saturated areas its a neon pink. It doesnt shade out of control but there is a nice shading present, I wish it were easier to get a bottle of this ink for I would surely add it to my Bungubox stash. I think I still do like Iroshizuku Tsutsuji more though, for the whole pink with gold sheen thing.
Here is a shot next to Bungubox Mother Pink, I promised the lovely lady who sent me this sample a comparison ^_^
These colors are both amazing, but as you can see totally different. The Sweet Love Pink captures the essence of Valentine’s Day first love, while Mother Pink captures a darker, more complicated side of love.

I appreciate this post! It’s been a minute, but would you perhaps know how this ink compares to Sailor Ink Studio 431 and Sailor Ink Studio 731?
