I decided to do a little product review. I bought Sharpie's Liquid pencil with great expectations: first, because I generally love all Sharpie's products and second because I am just such an optimistic boob who has a tendency to expect too much from everything and everybody. So maybe it was partially my fault that I was disappointed.
What does the commercial really says? That the main advantage of a liquid pencil over a mechanical pencil is that it doesn't have a lead that could break. So if breaking leads is your main problem, liquid pencil could be for you. Although I would recommend that you just not get the lead out too far and don't push on it too hard. That might probably save you just as well.
But I for some reason was hoping that liquid pencil would give me a more smooth and even line that the regular graphite pencil can. Basically I was hoping for a gel pen, behaving like a pencil - completely erasable and in a graphite color. Is it? Nooooo.
The "pencil" also starts leaking quite quickly - see all these smudges? Basically it behave like a cheap ball-point pen that leaves smudges on the opposite page after you close a notebook. And it can't be just my luck, because there were two pencils in a pack and I tried both - and they both behaved naughty: gap-y lines and smudges.
Disappointed at least. Wanting my money back to some point. Admitting that it might be my fault: I should not expect to much. Wanting to write to Sharpie: Dear Sharpie, redesign liquid pencil so it would look like a children product and you'll be golden. Make it red and glue Sponge Bob eraser to the top, because adults will not buy it anyway. Kiss, Julie.
