Ink Review: Noodler's La Couleur Royale

This is another fantastic ink that I fell in love with almost instantly Noodler’s La Couleur Royale is a great very rich and saturated ink that is blue with a hint of purple to it. Now the name color royal makes you think about royal purple and this is not really royal purple however as royal purple is much warmer, but that aside I still love this color.

There is very subtle shading to the color and overall it behaves well. There is no feathering and no bleed through at all. There is a little bit of show through on the other side of the paper but it would not stop you from writing on the other side.

It dries relatively fast for a Noodler’s but a Lefty would still want to be careful. It does not stand up to water well at all but is not advertised to so that is to be expected. Over all it is a great rich ink that offers a nice wet line and will add some uniqueness to your letters without being “over the top” if you don’t like the “weird” colors.

  1. I like your ink reviews a lot. Especially the Tiananmen, which I NEED. That color is fantastic.

    I wanted to mention, though, that the pen brand is Jinhao, not Jinaho. :)

  2. Thank you for the compliments :) my Pen actually says Jinaho on the cap which I am sure means it is a copycat of the Jinhao :)
