Bic Two Colours Pen
Advantages: A fun pen
Disadvantages: Not always appropriate and limited edition!
This is a review of the Bic two colours limited edition pen which is described on the Bic website as "Pink and turquoise inks: you'll go wild over it" I bought my pen in a mixed pack and have been using it in the home for all manner of tasks such as list writing, competition entries and other flamboyant writing based jobs which can stand the frivolous colour of pink and turquoise. I have always been impressed with the performance of Bic's four colour more office-suitable pens (black, blue, red, green) so was open to this pink pen joining my collection.
The barrel of the pen is pink and quite slimline with the top third of the pen white with two coloured sliders to click the colour of the pen you wish to use. The trademark Bic little ball sits on the end of the pen (good for chewing!) and a clip on the side enables the pen to attach itself to your bag or papers etc.
I got my pen in a great little pack of four Bic pens from Poundland. All the pens were different and usable in their own way.
As far as functioning as a pen, both colours are really nice writers with a consistent ink flow as you'd expect from a brand like Bic. I can't fault either colour for performance, but whether you can get by in life without a more 'normal' colour must be considered!
This pen is fun to use but then I suppose there are times in life when you need just a black or blue pen and the pink / turquoise one you have will not be suitable. I like this for writing birthday cards and letters and anything where I want my writing to stand out. The pink is quite bold and stands out so it is a nice colour to write in and the turquoise is bright and will pass as a blue in a pinch but probably one you don't want to be seen with if you want to be taken seriously at work.
This is a nice pen to add to my vast collection. It is unusual and offers an alternative colour if you want to underline or if the other side runs out first. I note that it is a limited edition pen so it may become hard to get hold of eventually but I have spotted this for sale in the local supermarket so they are widely available at the moment.
