25 Zebra Mildliner Highlighters and Creative Markers

Have you seen a more beautiful set of markers and colors? I am literally IN LOVE with these markers from Zebra. These markers are the Zebra Mildliner Highlighter Creative Markers. They have been around for a few years making their way over from Japan. The colors are soft and great for note taking, bullet journaling, lettering, calligraphy and even coloring. There is not a ton of colors, but the color palette works very well together and looks amazing! The ink comes out very well also, a little better than the S-Note from Sharpie. It is pretty easy to get a solid line.

I was given these markers in exchange for an honest review. This blog post contains affiliate links. Paper is from Hahnemuhle Paper and DCWV.

Here is a swatch chart with all the different sets available, Refresh Bright, Friendly, Fluorescent, Cool and Refined, and Warm.Paper from Hahnemuhle Paper and DCWV.

I have also made a swatch and lettering practice chart. Click here to get it.

Here are some swatch charts for blending the Mildliners. This is just a single highlight. 

This is super saturated. They do go down saturated, but I would not recommend because the tips are not made to handle coloring super saturated pictures.

Here are all the different marker sets. The 25 can be split up in these sets and be used together, or unique color combinations can be formed.


The colors in the fluorescent Mildliner pack are: pink, orange, yellow, blue, and blue green.

The colors in the Warm Mildliner set are: magenta, vermilion, gold, smoke blue, and brown.

Refresh Bright 
The colors in the Mildliner refresh bright set are: fuchsia, marigold, citrus green, summer green, and lavender.

The colors in the Friendly Mildliner set are: lemon yellow, apricot, coral pink, cyan, and dark gray.
Cool and Refined 
The colors in the Mildlinder Cool and Refined set are: red, green, dark blue, violet, and gray.
Here is the back of the box for reference. I could not find a year. It is interesting to note that the markers contain and AP symbol on back, the color name and a UPC code because they can be sold open stock. Click here to find on Blick.

And one more pretty picture just because. 


  1. BTW Jenny. It's actually "Zebra MILDLINER Double Ended Highlighter" without the Creative Marker or "Zebra MILDLINER Double Ended Brush". They came out with 2 new packs Gentle & Neutral, except the Neutral US 5 pack has Mild Copper and Japanese version has Mild Dusty Pink; Zebra Japan changed all their packaging removed all the plastic cases to poly bag, similar to Kuretake ZIG. Zebra Mildliner sets comes in Pokemon, Doraemon, Snoopy, Winnie the Pooh for 3x more $$$ (same colors)

  2. You might want to edit this post, as Mildliners are Hilighters and not markers, that's why there's not a (ton of colors), as for the straight line - all highlighters performs the *straight line*.
    Zebra has "Clickart" Markers, which they are literallly markers, which you can use for coloring. You should check out the zebrapen.com website for your review, there are swatch charts & coloring sheets and practice calligraphy. You charge $9.99 for swatch charts
