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!

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.
