The colors on these are beautiful...when the pens themselves decide to work, which is always iffy. The worst is when I'm writing out a nice card or working on a scrapbook project and the pen skips, which is frequently. I've bought many of these over the years and sadly the quality has never improved. Plus, as the writing dries, the glitter rises to the surface and is easily transferred (obviously not ideal in scrapbooking). Still looking for awesome pens, unfortunately.
