New Pilot Frixion Point Pens

I’ve come to realise that people who love makeup usually have a soft spot for stationery. I’m one of them, of course; notebooks, letter pads, pencils and pens – they all hold a special allure. While I love my graphite pencils (they shade well on face charts), I have a penchant for coloured pens too. So when Pilot Singapore offered to send me a range of their revamped (and apparently extended) range of Frixion gel ink pens, I was quite curious about them.

S$2.35 each, they are sleeker and look slightly better than their more-rounded predecessors. Like the latter, their distinguishing feature is the eraser nib at the base of the pen. They aren’t the first erasable pens ever created (children of the ’80s will remember the Papermate – or was it Kilometrico? – pen with the rubber at the tip of the pen cap) but these are not so unwieldy, plus they come in a range of cheerful colours.

The pens I received have a 0.5 mm nib and come in 10 colours:

  • Aqua
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Green
  • Lime
  • Orange
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Red

Apparently the thermo-sensitive ink is refillable.

If only makeup foibles could be just as easily erased! ;)

I believe these erasable pens are available at most major bookstores. While they make for neater work (bye bye correction tape and messy cancellations), the colours could be richer – I wish they were as intense as the Pilot G2 range of gel colours which I love!

    the blue pilot v5 is the only pen i’ve been using for the last …. 20 years! nothing comes close to it, higher or lower end! if only it can be air travel-friendly without leaking everywhere under pressurized air!

      Hi Stella,

      The Pilot V5 and V7 series are excellent! I’m more partial to the latter, though, because I write with a fair amount of force, haha! Love the inkiness. I like your little tidbit about them being air travel-friendly! :D

    That reminds me I’ve been meaning to buy some different colored pens so that I can differentiate my entries and jottings in my notebooks. What a coincidence! ;-)

    Btw, can a girl have too many brand new notebooks waiting for her to write in them?! I’m not buying any more… this year. :-)

      Hi Milktea,

      I have a weakness for notebooks and the like too! I used to collect notepads but have exercised more self-control lately as I’m running out of space. :P

      Hi June,

      Me too! There are some relatively new notepads, letter pads and note files from Palette’s Sweet Street available now.

    Wow, I love those! I have a pink original one – hoping these come out in Australia soon, I’d love the purple and green ones!
