INK SAMPLE - Diamine Red Lustre is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chloe Rowland 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 new2fp 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 Cote from Amazing shimmer I am absolutely in love with this color. I put it in TSWBI mini and it looks beautiful. Not only that but the medium nib really shows the gold and orange tones of this ink. I will most likely be buying a bottle soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sjoyr 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!!
