Highlighters and Color Gel Pens from Faber-Castell


Faber-Castell sent two packages of Textliner 38 highlighters and a package of RX Gel pens along with the Fast Gel Z reviewed last month. Never has my desk had so much color on it!

The highlighters are divided into fluorescent and pastel sets. They perform as expected and did not cause the Fast Gel Z to smear. They have firm nibs that should last well with typical use. The pastel set is more to my liking, but that is a personal choice. A family member has uses for the fluorescent set and called dibs on that one.

The fluorescent colors were most uncooperative about being photographed so keep that in mind if you try to assess the colors from the image. The pastels are more accurate except Vanilla which is more pale than in the image. It is unobtrusive and handy for certain uses.

The RX Gel pens have a 0.7mm nib width that lays down a strong line. The colors are bright and the selection a bit out of the ordinary including blue, green, purple, pink and gold. No sparkle or iridescence to any of them, but on white Exacompta paper, they really stand out. Considering the amount of color, the ink dries quickly.

Thank you Faber-Castell for sending so many products to review. Family and friends are now outfitted with gel pens and highlighters with positive responses from all.
