Stabilo Review

Stabilo passed me some pens and markers to play with!


The loot! #stabilomy

Got a shock when I saw the amount of pens Hahahahah cause ah...never seen so many coloured pens at one go befre πŸ˜‚

Other than at the bookshop? And when you feel like buying all but you can't? πŸ˜‚

Also, cause I actually hardly use coloured pens. So to see this is like "ermmmmm, ok. How am I gonna use them?" πŸ˜…

I also find it funny that although Stabilo is an established brand (it's been here forever?) don't think many ppl buy?

Summore it's branded cause it's from Germany? But when I was young, steadler seems to be the brand.

Even with the colouring craze now, I see people buying faber castell more..hmm.

Though then again, I myself don't own any Stabilo πŸ˜‚ the colour pencils I own is colleen. I buy it more for childhood sake la and my steadler colour pencils from 20 years back are still with me.

So..... 😢
It's actually quite impossible to finish using unless u REALLY use.
Though I'm fully confident that almost everyone grew up with these Hahahah πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

These are very old as u can see. But I think their highlights are one of the most long lasting.

I tried another famous brand once πŸ˜’
Didn't last to anywhere honestly.

So with this..I think I'm quite confident that their pens will last quite long πŸ˜‚
Cappi series!

Target audience should be for children and school teachers I guess? But of course if you like thicker markers, by all means!

Love the colours for this series! 😊

The selling point (or extra point?) is this!

Hahahaha suitable for me also la since I'm always losing my stuffs. πŸ˜‚

But I think it's cute! You just put the colours you want (I think one ring can fit around 12 colours) and carry them out!

I guess the only problem is that if u don't cap it back the moment u use it....then u prolly worry about losing the caps altogether one shot πŸ˜‚

I mean, knowing kids la.
The pen68 series. 1mm thick.

Yes, the above drawing is drawn using this pen!

Quite nice to use actually. Colours are nice and vibrant!

Tried to recall if there's any other brands I can compare it with but ah...nope.

It's a bit like magic colour maybe? And the only Magic colours I use (like on a super rare basis) are the ones from daiso πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Of course can't be compared!
The pen 88 series which I think should be quite famous. I myself used it since schooling days cause it's quite cheap and durable. (Esp to write in autograph books)

And yes, I still own some.
Now I can has sibeh many colours muahahahaha 😈

Though I only used it for writing. Today I shall see if I can actually draw with pens (not sure to call these pens or markers) πŸ˜‚

So yes, in a way, you just saw markers/pens in diff nib size πŸ˜‚
Oh. One thing about their pens is that it's not circular? Hahaha

It's quite iconic I guess that their pens are in hexagon shape?

And also the cappi series has that diff end at the end?

All these small things makes it ah...harder to roll to anywhere πŸ˜‚
Which is great la!
Done with pen 88 series.
Oooh. Not bad wor.
Why didn't I use them earlier?!?? πŸ˜‚

Cause it's easier to bring pens than watercolour out??

Did these on good quality paper (like water paper quality) but I have a feeling if u were to write on normal paper, the ink might seep through.

So something to think about.
Either u buy better quality notebooks or just skip the pages when u write πŸ˜‚
Mine is just small fry work.
Lemme show you this!
This is what u can do with the pen 88 series!

Crazy or what?

Makes u feel like buying the whole set to test it out right? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

(If you like drawing la, I showed ah pek and he's like, "you gimme the best pens in the universe, 10% of that also won't come out.") πŸ˜‚

But this is very obvious in terms of how vibrant their colours are!
My dear dear ronnycakes (she's a super nice girl! Gahhhh) did calligraphy with the pen 68 series.

All these people crazy or whatπŸ˜’
Must set a time one day to meet so that we can exchange tips πŸ™Œ
And of course, venietee's work on insta using stabilo's colour pencils 😳

So insane I don't even know what to say hahah
Since I'm at it. Drew a continuation hahaha πŸ˜‚ upload on Dayre before Insta!

I wanted to write "in your hair" then I realized ....ah pek is no hair geh (got la in real life hahaha receding one πŸ˜› but in drawing he's botak ma)

So changed to "on your head" hahaha πŸ˜›

Quite therapeutic to draw the roses!
Though damn cheating la, I just went round and round and all around hahahahahah not properly done πŸ˜‚
Self proclaimed roses

Does this answer your question? Hahahah #cheatonewatercolour

The tip is like normal magic pen so you can't really do calligraphy / brush lettering since usually u will need flexible nibs right?

What ronnycakes did was she just used the ink colour and not the pen itself to write! 😁

Hope this helps!
