"Add colour to your writing with this vibrant ink."

Lilac Ink was a kind of ink that Gilderoy Lockhart used in the 1990s.

In 1992, when Harry Potter had detention with the professor, he helped him with his fan-mail by addressing the envelopes in lilac ink. When Harry heard the Serpent of Slytherin's voice, he jumped and caused spilled the lilac ink over Veronica Smethley's street address.[1][2]
