These are decent pencils which I use for adult coloring, but were far too costly. Some of the lighter colors were disappointing as there isn't enough pigment to get the lighter contrast I want. And some of the shades are too similar in color. I suggest a smaller set of this brand. The Crayola brand still has some of my favorite go to colors.
I was a little concerned about paying for these pencils. I was always of the opinion its just coloring crayolas will be fine. They were not, I decided to splurge and see what the fuss was about. I will never use another kind of color pencil again.
Pencils arrived on time and in good condition. Color lays down beautifully and blends and shades nicely, with an excellent range of colors including both warm and cool grays. I am using them for adult coloring books and they have helped me make lovely pictures. They were an excellent price. I have only seen them for a higher price else where, $-$$$ more. I am very happy with them and would recommend them.
I price compared various stores and I found Overstock to have the best prices on these pencils than anywhere else. They arrived in great condition. One of the leads had broken from the top but it was not a big deal. It was only one pencil and it was only the very tip. These colors are very saturated, it almost looks like you used a marker. I love the different colors, perfect for mixing and blending or creating gradients. I would definitely recommend these.
