Bic Two Colours Pen
Advantages: Pink and blue!
Disadvantages: none unless you dislike girly ink colours/ baby blue/ candy pink etc
As you all know, I am a fan of all things stationery and recently saw on sale a new version of the two-in-one pen- this featuring both pink and blue ink choices- as it was 1: A NEW Stationery product; 2: Cute and 3: On offer for £1 at the time for two of these pens- how could I resist?
BIC make biros and other types of pen (and razors!). However, I am used to seeing their products in either see through or neutral (ie yellowy orange) barrels- so I was nicely surprised that this pen is in pink and white plastic and seems to appeal directly to the female pen buying population. The ink colours are very bubblegum girly type colours-- the pink is candy pink and the blue is baby blue blue. I like how BIC have gone for something a bit different to the normal biro colours of red/ black/ blue and (if you are lucky and the store you are in sells them) green.
Each pen is the same length as you would expect a disposable ball point pen to be and actually only around 1mm wider. There is a clip built in to the pen on the side so you can secure it onto your pocket, inside a bag if there is a slot or pouch or over a few sheets of a note book which is handy. To activate either the pink or the blue, all you do is slide down a button. To 'switch off' the pen entirely you partially press one of the buttons and the nibs both retract so you don't always have to have a nib poking out of the end of the pen- this is good as it means you are less likely to end up inadvertently drawing over the inside of your handbag.
*Is it any Good?*
Yes it is. Both of the pens have a medium to large ball point nib - so they are lovely and smooth to write with. They are not super fine nibbled. So, if you dislike very fine nibbed biros or just like writing with a broader line, then these will suit you.
The ink flows without any breaks in the line (as you can get with budget pens), and the quality is as you would expect from BIC (really good ink flow, pens that you don't have to throw out until all the ink is used up...). I get through ball point pens at a rate of knots and this pen has lasted me really well. I find having the option to use a different colour without having to hunt for a different pen really useful. The ink colours are really cheery and ideal to use when making or writing cards or doing craft things. They make a nice cheery change from the boring blue and black biros we are all used to.
I really hope BIC keep this product on sale and if anything, broaden the range (product suggestion to BIC-- maybe a green and purple duo-pen? pretty please?).
I would recommend this as a well priced multipurpose pen that writes well, is comfortable to use and convenient to carry around with you and also cheerful.
