Happy Valentines Day!  I thought it was fitting to start today off with the review of a red ink <3.

This color appeared to be sold out everywhere so when I found some I jumped for joy and bought two bottles, one for me and one to give as a special Valentine to one of you ^_^.  How perfect that the bottle features the creator of Romeo and Juliet himself!

The bottle isn’t the traditional limited edition bottle, but a more rounded one which increases the capacity to 35ML rather than 30ML.

I am not sure I am completely in love with the bottle, but the ink is what counts right?  For this review I decided to ink up my GW Pens Alpha Custom Hippo, its one of my favorite writers and on a day that we celebrate love, there is no better pen.

Ink Blob:

I found the ink blob this ink created particularly interesting!  The color is called Velvet Red and the blob produced a sort of velvety finish.  This ink leans toward brown a lot, and is not a red that will hurt your eyes.  The flow, saturation, and shading are all great as with most MB inks.  Unfortunately the red velvet cake finish didn’t appear during regular writing, but I’m glad its there!  Totally another winner from MB.

Now for the fun part, the giveaway!
