I have to admit, I love the bottles here. These colors are from the Season 3 line of ink colors and come in a 2-pack. A 65mL bottle and a smaller 15mL bottle make it a fun idea. The small bottle is Gluon and is another shimmer based ink.
Seriously, the shimmer ink phase needs to stop already.
The packaging is fun. I like the box that the two bottles are shipped in and the outer space/science theme is also a nice touch. The included items that come with the ink, however, is odd. This ink is not cheap at $36 + shipping which is why I am scratching my head here. There is a little pamphlet showing the other inks of Season 3 here, which is great. There are also some very small stickers from Season 1 ink colors...ok. But then the weird comes to play. A paper bookmark and a paper pen stand as well as a paper napkin. If I am paying this much for ink, why cheapen the experience with very cheap paper products? A cloth napkin would be nice for cleaning of a newly filled nib and the other items can be easily omitted.
Let's get to the ink itself.
Gluon is #24 and is a shimmer based ink and it is an odd off-yellow goldish color. With the bottle shaken, it has a subtle orange based shimmer and sheen to it but in my samples, it is very subtle.

These colors may appeal to others but they are not for me.
