If you know me you know I love all things crafty, nerdy and so on. Well this love does include these wonderful things called pens! I have been given the opportunity to review and do a giveaway featuring products from BiC’s Back to School line-up.
This is something I decided to draw up to really test out these products! I could easily just write few words and call it a day. However I am such a nerd when it comes to pens and such that I really had to give these pens a run for their money! Haha.
I love writing. I am a huge fan of things hand written and I just really enjoy being able to hold a pen and write what it is I want to say. Like for example; I made my mom a photobook for her birthday and I had my SIL, brothers, nephew, my son and myself all write hand written letters to her and I scanned them in to the computer and then had them put into the book. You can see that Here.
Having something typed up just isn’t as personal as something handwritten. Handwritten beats computers any day!
When I was in high shcool I use to love making all my notes color coordinated! I loved being organized and having all these cute little pens and such to help me stay organized. Being organized is so important. Even more so when it comes to school. School isn’t always easy and when you have everything in order it makes it a little easier to get stay focused. I know I can’t focus is everything is messy. Actually, I can’t sleep if my room is a mess!! So FORGET even trying to do homework when I have notes all over the places and books everywhere.
BiC for Her Marker Pens. OMG These babies are my favorite!!! I’m not a fan of pink really but I do love these. I haven’t looked yet but I am going to look to see the colors they have available. If these is it I hope they come out with more colors. I love using these type of pens for my drawing. They write so smooth! No leaking or smearing and man I do like that!!! I also love the design on these pens!!
BiC Automatic Mechanical Pencil. I love these pencils! It’s like a mini gadget! You use the eraser to get the point to come out. Hold the eraser in and you can push the point all the was back in. The eraser turns so it can stay put away or come out. And the clip on the pencil, it you pull it up the eraser pops out and the pencil tips pops all the way in. I love how smooth this writes. I love that the lead isn’t super think either. I loved having these pencil’s as a kid but they lead was always too thin and would break on me. Before I knew it I was asking my mom for more lead… which would never go over well!! hahaha
BiC for Her Gel Pens. I love these pens! I love that they have a rubber grip which is great when your hands get all sweaty (yeah I know gross but it happens, don’t lie… you know it does). It write nice and smoothly. There is no skipping which means the ball doesn’t get stuck which is something i love. I hate when that crap happens.
BiC Tech 2in1 Stylus & Pen. Haha, I love this thing!! First, The pens is awesome. It writes nicely and again, no skipping which mean the ball doesn’t get stuck. I love how it has the stylus on the end! I only have my phone to use it on but it made somethings so much easier to do! This is really a neat little gadget I love having on hand!!
Bic Z4 + Roller Pen + Bic Z4 + Roller Pen Neon. – These are the same pens. You have the basic colors and neon colors. Something I notice with these is when you first use them the ball gets stuck. I used these in my drawing and once the ink got flowing I no longer had a problem. I really love the colors available and I really love how they write. Nice and smooth. These are great for making notes on the side of your main notes. I loved doing that!! I know such a nerd! haha. The colors are nice and bright and easy to read!
BiC Round Stic Grip. These are somewhat of your basic pens just in neon colors. I really liked these pens. They design is simple and basic like your normal BiC pens but these are neon colors! Again, I had no problem with the ball sticking which I loved. I really thought they would for this set but nope! Everything wrote nice and smooth!!
And last… BiC Brite Liner Highlighter Tape. Who has bought the White out tape? I have!!! And I could never get that stuff to work right! It would always skip and the tape would get all messed up I just ended up throwing it at the wall and calling it a day! Haha. Well When I saw these is the box I wasn’t too sure how I would feel. I really thought this would be another failed attempt to an awesome idea. Well I was wrong! First, The tip twist so you can protect the tape and the piece that is in the middle of it. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t skip (unless your 5 year old decided to play with them… Yeah lets not go there…lol). I really like this!!! No problems at all. The work great, go on smoothly. I also like this… You can erase it if needed!! How awesome is that???
I took pretty pictures of all the pens in their packages and then I decided I didn’t want to share pens in the packages plus the writing, plus the actual whole pen, plus my drawing… so I trashed those pics! Haha. These are all the pens I received and as you can see they are all so very awesome! I really enjoyed testing these babies out!! The designs are awesome. Some simple, some different and some girly! It was a mix of everything and I have to say I loved everything!!! I have no issues with anything listed here! Everything wrote very well.
As you can see from the first image, I really tested them out! It took me hours to draw that so I really put the pens to work and truly was able to test them out. Considering this was a non stop drawing besides for the usual potty break these are pretty awesome. No issues on something that took like about 5 hours or so to draw and color.
