If you have ever been on this blog site, you will know that I’m no artist, so full disclaimer straight up, I’m not the best person to be reviewing these pencils.
Having said that, I’ve been using these pencils for some time now, ever since “adult colouring” became popular a few years back. I first purchased a smaller pack (48 colours I think?) but quickly decided that I needed more colours for my needs (I really didn’t but you know), so I upgraded to the 150 pack of pencils, which at the time was the largest pack you could purchase.
To my amateurish experience, I find these pencils lovely and creamy and they seem to take much less effort to use than the ones I’ve been using all my life. They also sharpen really well and seem to hold the point for a fair bit of time. The colours that are seen on the pencil body are pretty replicable in the pencil itself, which is really pleasing for some of the fluorescent colours or pastels, which I’ve not experienced before.
The only thing I’ve got to say about this set is that its very likely these pencils were designed for proper artists, as there are a lot of greys in the set. I don’t use these at all, as you can probably imagine.
Overall, in my limited experience, I thought these were really reasonably priced for the quality and number of colours available in the set. I’m keen to try out some of the super duper expensive Faber Castell wooden boxed sets, but you can probably tell from my review, that they would probably be wasted on me.
