I first discovered the Shooting Star through an Instagram Post from Luxury Brands of America. While I’m supposed to be on a fountain pen low buy, I just had to get one. I’m planning to collect the Talisman series pens that have shaped confetti — like the Wild Rose — since I’m no longer buying TWSBI pens.
I honestly can’t say what I like best about the Shooting Star. To start, it has meteorite dust in the material. While I can’t “show” you that, it’s pretty cool.
The amount of shimmer in the royal blue center areas and section is captivating.
The star shaped confetti/glitter simply makes me smile. And I love the distribution on mine.
The glow-in-the-dark ends — while not something I’ll likely see often — are very cool. And I appreciate that the “glow” is the same color as the actual material.
The Shooting Star came with a leaflet, standard Benu box and a sticker and pin in support of Ukraine.
As of writing, the Shooting Star is still available at Goldspot, and I highly suggest getting one. Unless you dislike blue or sparkly pens, I doubt you’ll be disappointed.
Thank you for reading until the end. Do you own a Shooting Star? Do you want one? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
