~*~*~ Bic Two Colours Pen~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
This is a pen made by bic. It is the sort that has different coloured ink in one pen. I always remember my teachers in primary school have the blue pen with the four different coloured inks. However, this one has a pink body with a white top in this top section you will find a turquoise clicker and a pink clicker, sliding either one down will allow you to change which colour you are using.
By looking on the Bic website I can see that this pen is a limited edition pen.
~ Why did I buy it? ~
My eldest son is in secondary school, when he started back in September he had a buldging pencil case filled with lots and lots of new pens. Within two weeks his pen supply was somewhat dwindling. I decided that it would be a good idea to have a load of pens ready rather than have to rush out to replace everything all of the time so whilst in Poundland I came across a Bic Value Pack which consisted of around eight different stationary items including this pen. My son said he didn't want the pink pen so I kept it for myself.
I now have three of these pens as I felt the Bic Value Packs were such great value I bought more.
~ Using it ~
It's a pen, it's not that difficult! You simply click down the colour coded button to choose the colour you wish to use - With this particular pen you get a choice of pink or turquoise.
It is a ball point pen which has a medium thickness point. It's very comfortable to hold and to write with but of course I must say that the colours are not particularly suitable for use on important documents or forms.
I generally use this pen for writing lists, writing appointments on the calender and just things like that. I do think that the colours are very nice, they are not too pale nor too bright.
~ Overall ~
I really like using this pen, it is really comfortable to use and the colours are really lovely. The look of the pen itself is quite girly and pretty with its pastel pink colouring. Having paid just 12.5p for this pen I have to say I am very impressed.
I don't have any bad points to mention about this pen, it's nice to use and the colours are fab!
Thanks for reading :o) x
As everyone knows, Bic is a great company that manufactures loads of useful things from razors to pens. I am a very very big fan of the original Bic.
Why I wanted it....
I wanted this pen because when working in freelance writing, I go through tons of pens. I found the same typical black pen bored the life out of me. Another reason was, me and my sister in law enjoy writing notes to each other so I thought the colours would make it more exciting.
How it looks.....
The pen is made of plastic about 2/3 of the pen is a beautiful pastel pink colour, the 1/3 of the pen is white with a little clip so you can attach it to your clothing. I don't use this as I put my pen in my hair, but it's useful! There is a little bauble thing on the top end of the pen, underneath that there are 2 slidy buttons one blue one pink.
How it writes.....
I cannot fault this pen at all, as always Bic delivers so well. You can write and write and write and the pen won't fault. The ink never breaks so you get beautifully connected writing. No matter what colour your using. Fits in your hand perfectly, my fiancé is left handed and he can use it just as well as I can.
How you buy it......
I have never seen this pen sold on its own. I have always seen it with other pens in packs.
You can get these most commonly in pound land.
In pound land you get the pen in a pack with others, Bic pens and pencils. For a pack of 5 they are £1.
Writes like a dream,
Cheap so if you lose it, you can easily buy another one.
Me and the kids love the colours.
Does not feel cheap,
I don't think the pen has any at all.
Great pen, I would say everyone should have one of these, Bic provides the best pens out there I believe. Especially for disposable pens.
Would I recommend?
Without a doubt.
As you all know, I am a fan of all things stationery and recently saw on sale a new version of the two-in-one pen- this featuring both pink and blue ink choices- as it was 1: A NEW Stationery product; 2: Cute and 3: On offer for £1 at the time for two of these pens- how could I resist?
BIC make biros and other types of pen (and razors!). However, I am used to seeing their products in either see through or neutral (ie yellowy orange) barrels- so I was nicely surprised that this pen is in pink and white plastic and seems to appeal directly to the female pen buying population. The ink colours are very bubblegum girly type colours-- the pink is candy pink and the blue is baby blue blue. I like how BIC have gone for something a bit different to the normal biro colours of red/ black/ blue and (if you are lucky and the store you are in sells them) green.
Each pen is the same length as you would expect a disposable ball point pen to be and actually only around 1mm wider. There is a clip built in to the pen on the side so you can secure it onto your pocket, inside a bag if there is a slot or pouch or over a few sheets of a note book which is handy. To activate either the pink or the blue, all you do is slide down a button. To 'switch off' the pen entirely you partially press one of the buttons and the nibs both retract so you don't always have to have a nib poking out of the end of the pen- this is good as it means you are less likely to end up inadvertently drawing over the inside of your handbag.
*Is it any Good?*
Yes it is. Both of the pens have a medium to large ball point nib - so they are lovely and smooth to write with. They are not super fine nibbled. So, if you dislike very fine nibbed biros or just like writing with a broader line, then these will suit you.
The ink flows without any breaks in the line (as you can get with budget pens), and the quality is as you would expect from BIC (really good ink flow, pens that you don't have to throw out until all the ink is used up...). I get through ball point pens at a rate of knots and this pen has lasted me really well. I find having the option to use a different colour without having to hunt for a different pen really useful. The ink colours are really cheery and ideal to use when making or writing cards or doing craft things. They make a nice cheery change from the boring blue and black biros we are all used to.
I really hope BIC keep this product on sale and if anything, broaden the range (product suggestion to BIC-- maybe a green and purple duo-pen? pretty please?).
I would recommend this as a well priced multipurpose pen that writes well, is comfortable to use and convenient to carry around with you and also cheerful.
I bought this as part of a set of pens a while ago. I am training to be a teacher so where most people only really require pens that are black or blue I actually often find I need various coloured pens to complete my studies or mark homework in school. Pink and turquoise didn't immediately strike me as very useful colours but I have actually ended up using them the most out of all the ones I got in this pack.
This pen has a pink coloured barrel and it feels like quite a nice lightweight and slim model. I find this good for writing/drawing etc because it is very easy to use and hold. The top part of the pen is white and there are two coloured sliders which indicate which colour of pen you want to use. There is also a clip on the side of the pen but no lid as this would cause too much of a faff with the different sliders too.
I bought the set I got from poundland, so it was a pound for two pens (the other being blue/green/red/black slider pen). This meant each pen was around 50p which worked out pretty good value as far as I was concerned.
I find the pen very easy to write with, it is great or making little notes or for writing message or marking work. I like to use them when revising as I can colour code different piece of information. I do find, however, that for drawing they can be a little too thick. I do quite a lot of crafts and often find these colours are really great but I don't get a fine enough line or enough precision with this thicker style biro pen.
The colours are both very vibrant and pretty - one turquoise and one pink. I do think that because they've chosen pink for the body of the pen you might find that it is more suitable for women. I actually think it would be the perfect gift for someone who is expecting a baby along with a book of baby names, because preferred names could be written in either pink or turquoise to indicate gender!
Overall, this is a nice pen though it is worth thinking about just how useful you would find these two colours.
Bic Two Colours Pen -
Available in Poundland either in a separate pack of one or in a mixed pack of 5 pens. (The pack I bought had in a thick yellow highlighter, a red Biro, and black Biro in a 'burlesque' themed purple outer cover as well as two of these). According to the Bic website these are limited editions. I'm becoming a bit of a stationary fiend, and have been busily picking up some bargains - such as these recently.
The pen casing itself is a little wider than a 'standard' Bic pen, and is a nice rounded shape. The top half of the pen is white and has a clip, and two 'slides' which will push out / retract the required coloured pen. The writing end of the pen is a baby pink colour.
The inks in this pen are vibrant pink, and bright turquoise. Like the standard Bic biros they have a 'medium' tip and as such don't suffer from the scratchyness that can accompany the thin orange barreled pens that Bic make. The pens do suffer from a slight 'blobbing' issue when used. Although I find this to be the case with all biros, and it is easily remedied if you just scribble the excess ink off on a piece of scrap paper. As a student I have to admit that I love the funky colours, and while I am not office based I am relishing the fact that I can use them all the time. The writing action of the pen is smooth, and it is very comfortable to hold. I don't feel that I can get my 'best' handwriting from them however for nice writing I tend to use a fountain pen. Being in a class with doodlers they tend to be very popular.
I highly recommend these - (a woman in Poundland looked at me funny when I pointed them out as she went to purchase the single pack)... At 20 pence each these are a real bargain. 5*s from me...
This is a review of the Bic two colours limited edition pen which is described on the Bic website as "Pink and turquoise inks: you'll go wild over it" I bought my pen in a mixed pack and have been using it in the home for all manner of tasks such as list writing, competition entries and other flamboyant writing based jobs which can stand the frivolous colour of pink and turquoise. I have always been impressed with the performance of Bic's four colour more office-suitable pens (black, blue, red, green) so was open to this pink pen joining my collection.
The barrel of the pen is pink and quite slimline with the top third of the pen white with two coloured sliders to click the colour of the pen you wish to use. The trademark Bic little ball sits on the end of the pen (good for chewing!) and a clip on the side enables the pen to attach itself to your bag or papers etc.
I got my pen in a great little pack of four Bic pens from Poundland. All the pens were different and usable in their own way.
As far as functioning as a pen, both colours are really nice writers with a consistent ink flow as you'd expect from a brand like Bic. I can't fault either colour for performance, but whether you can get by in life without a more 'normal' colour must be considered!
This pen is fun to use but then I suppose there are times in life when you need just a black or blue pen and the pink / turquoise one you have will not be suitable. I like this for writing birthday cards and letters and anything where I want my writing to stand out. The pink is quite bold and stands out so it is a nice colour to write in and the turquoise is bright and will pass as a blue in a pinch but probably one you don't want to be seen with if you want to be taken seriously at work.
This is a nice pen to add to my vast collection. It is unusual and offers an alternative colour if you want to underline or if the other side runs out first. I note that it is a limited edition pen so it may become hard to get hold of eventually but I have spotted this for sale in the local supermarket so they are widely available at the moment.
