Diamine Red Lustre (50ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and rich Bought this on a whim and really love the color. It's a deep rich red infused with gold that will be absolutely wonderful for Christmas cards. It writes very smooth and does not seem to clog the way some inks with shimmer have. I'm using a Lamy All-Star Broad nib. It seems to have more or maybe it's a better infused shimmer than the J. Herbin inks I have (and I love J. Herbin inks). I can't wait to purchase a few other colors; this is sure to be a popular ink. It's smooth, dries fairly quick, does not seem to clog my pen and is a fair price. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Red and Beautiful Sparkle! I had saved this package from y'all for a day I needed a little lift, and I certainly got that with the Tomoe paper and the Diamine sparkle inks! Diamine Red Lustre is a perfect red (now if I could just find a lipstick this color), and I tested using a glass dip pen, after I thoroughly shook the sample. It is so beautiful, and the gold shimmered perfectly. The ink spread over the paper just enough to allow the shimmer to come through. I had ordered several other of the inks, and they're all so wonderful I'm going to have a hard time choosing. I think I'm going to have to put some of the colors on my Christmas wish list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great red ink! These Diamine Shimmer inks seem to have gotten it right! My sample of Red Lustre is a nice red with gold shimmer. It doesn't look as orange or copper as the swab, but the gold does add some subtle sparkle, even with a Metro medium nib. In a Safari broad nib, the red is not as bright but there is more shading. I also like the Night Sky and Magical Forest inks. Just be sure to shake the sample before inking and turn the pen a few times if it's been stored to mix the gold or silver. These inks don't look like you've used a glitter pen, but the sparkle or shine is definitely there if you look for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Ink I really like this ink. I ordered it because I thought it would be good for Christmas, and the red with gold sparkles is perfect! This is a nice shade of red, it writes a little darker for me than the sample in the pictures. I've used other colors of the Diamine shimmering inks before and this has the same pros and cons of those. When I first loaded this into my TWSBI, I must not have shaken my sample vial enough. I got a clog of gold shimmer in the nib. But, once I flushed the nib I haven't had any trouble. I think that may be something you have to deal with every once in a while with shimmering inks. It's worth it for sparkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous red with a lot of gold sparkle! I purchased this ink for this year's Christmas cards. Sadly, I did not realize that the inside of the cards were red, so the red ink won't show up well. However, I've been playing around with this ink on white paper and it is amazing. I will be purchasing new Christmas cards because I MUST use this ink! I also plan to pick up a couple more colors in the future in the shimmer series. So far I have not had any clogging issues and the ink behaves similarly to other Diamine inks. The shimmer particles do settle, so make sure to give the bottle a good shake or stir before filling your pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glamorous The Red Lustre from Diamine has gold shimmers that shows up best when used with a wider nib. I have found this ink to work better in some pens and not so well in others. When used in the Nimosine demonstrator with medium nib this ink would run(overflow). This causes me to go through one fill in less 2 pages. However, when it is used in the Pilot Metropolitan this ink performs exceptional. The Pilot has a medium nib, which requires a bit of pressure to fully enjoy the gold glimmer in this ink. Wrap Up: This ink is best used in a bigger nib, Flex nibs would be excellent. I rate this 10/10 would definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ink, tough to clean I love that Goulet Pens offers samples! I got this ink as a sample and loved it! However, when it came time to clean out my TWSBI it was a bear to get out. The gold flecks were tough enough, but the ink was close to staining my favorite pen. Took a lot of elbow grease! Investing in the Goulet pen wash today! Hoping this will help as well. As much as I loved writing with this ink, I think I'll pass on it. The Blue Pearl is a keeper however!!
