Oh Mildliners… known as THE aesthetic highlighter, known as the “cult-favorite”. There has and still is so much buzz about these highlighters.
Personally, I don’t have all of them… However, I do own 2/3 of the line, (1 is not pictured). I really do like them, they have became a staple in my every day notes.
Let’s talk about them a little.
Mildliners are a line of versatile highlighters by Zebra. They come in 15 different colors — varying from mild to florescent. Honestly, I can’t think of another color you would need.
These highlighters have a felt tip, with a highlighter side and a marker side.
Once again, I repeat, the design is great! I also love the barrel size. It is the perfect size for my fingers, haha.
I got mine as singles from Jetpens for $1.50 each. This is a great choice for those who want to pick and try a few from the line and not buy all of them.
OR you can also get the 3 sets of 5 from Amazon for around $14 (which is actually a great deal, you’re paying around 93 cents for each, only problem is that you have to buy all 15).
Besides that, you can find them in storers for around $1-$2. I bought one of mine from Kinokuniya bookstore for around $2 last year.
I will post my notes eventually that include these highlighters. In conclusion, these have become a great staple of my stationery appetite. I love to use them on my notes, on index cards (especially the bold colors) + in my planner. They are convenient and aesthetically pleasing. The inks aren’t the smoothest and it isn’t the best highlighter I own, but it is definitely worth having. It doesn’t smudge most of the pens I use as well, however some of them do bleed through the paper. I don’t know how long they will last exactly, but the first mildliner I bought around a year ago are still great and pigmented. Rating: 4/5
I hope you enjoyed this informal review post! More (review-ish) stationery posts coming soon.
