ever since I’ve started my Bullet Journal I got sucked into all the stuff the bujo-community hypes about. I could make a post out of stuff I bought because of that.
Wait… That’s a good idea! But not for today.
Today is all about one of many hyped things. The Zebra Mildliners!
As always I tested them in my Leuchttrum 1917 in A4 size and they do not bleed through but they do ghost a little. I have the most common colors that means 15 pens in total. Honestly I only bought them because there where a discount on them. After using them I noticed that I prefer pastel colors in my bujo when I highlight and such. There are 4 pastel like colors, 3 colors like normal highlight and the rest is pretty strong in terms of color vibrancy.
They are dual ended and you get a thick side and a thinner side. It’s easy to highlight with the thicker side cause it’s already shaped like a highlighter. With the thinner side you can easily write but also do more prize highlighting.
I like them but I think I would be fine without them too. If you are someone who is just starting out then you don’t really need them. They aren’t cheap and depending on where you live shipping will take quiet some time.
today I wanted to talk about the Frixion Pastel Highlighters. First… I LOVE THEM!
I started Bullet Journaling in March and I got sucked in badly. Within the community there are a view products that basically everyone has like Tombow dual brush pens, Zebra Mildliners, Leuchtturm 1917 notebook and so on…
Even thou Tombow as well as Zebra Mildliners have Pastel colors I find that the best Pastel colors are the Frixion Pastel Highlighters. I don’t have a Tombow dual brush pen to really compare it to but I do have all Zebra Mildliners. There are some in it that are more on the soft colored side but not as soft as the Frixion Highlighters.
My problem with the Tombow is that when I see a set that I like then I only want one or two colors from it and buying them separately makes them even more expensive. I don’t say that the Zebra Mildliners are cheap because they are probably not. Anyway compared to these two brands these Frixion Highlighters are cheap and really cool. Best of all you can erase them if you made a mistake .
As I mentioned before I use them in my bullet Journal for highlighting because they aren’t too aggressive or overpowering in the page compared to the writing as you can see in the picture. There is also no bleed through and barely any ghosting going on and I tried them out in my Leuchttrum 1917 in A5 size which has thinner paper than the A4 size where I also tested them.
