I bought this for my kid who is into drawing/cartooning with madness! She sits for hours and makes art all the time. She was a bit disappointed because one of the markers chiseled tip came broken and the ink run all over the place, other markers came unbranded, and the case already torn.
She does not even let me use these markers, she has been careful to the extreme with them and overall she is happy with the product.
At less than a dollar per marker, these markers work beautifully and have a wonderful range of colors. They create a flat, even tone and blend well, the brush nibs feel great although slightly stiffer than the copics I'm used to. Great alternative for copic, only downside is their pastels aren't exactly pastel, and a few colors don't match the caps. The plastic protector sheet came bent as well, and snapped when I tried to flatten it out, but that isn't that big of a problem for me. (The piece I still have works perfectly fine.) All in all they're absolutely amazing and I hope I can buy the larger set soon!
The markers work beautifully, but the case has ripped after two months.
Love the markers and their swatches (check the last pic for those.) $1.30-ish per marker is hard to beat when copics cost like $5 per. The biggest problem I have is that the little bag the markers come in is incredibly flimsy. It was torn when I first received it and since then it's only gotten worse (compare pics 1&2 vs 4&3 ). If you're planning to be on the go with these markers, you'll need to buy a different bag
I absolutely love these markers! The brush tips are great and dont seem to fray with lots of use so far. They blend pretty good with some patience. The only real dow side is they do bleed. So be patient. Let each color dry before you blend all the way.
The colorless blender is Definitely a color remover, could use afew more skin tones, for the most part really like the markers, good color range, the brushtip is nice!
For the price, these markers are fabulous. I’d heard so many good things about them and I wasn’t let down. They’re extremely vibrant, but the brush top is not as flexible as say a Copic marker. For the 7 dollar difference, I wouldn’t complain. The only unfortunate thing about these markers is that they don’t have refills. All in all, I absolutely love these and use them in conjunction with other marker brands all the time. If you don’t feel like buying expensive markers, buy these!
My second order of these markers are coming in the mail tomorrow, so there's an indication of how much I like these markers. My biggest pro with these markers is how even and smooth they swatch, especially for the price. The vibrant colors always puts me in creative mood when I use them. I also like how easy they layer over each other. The color selection is great, although I wish there were more brown tones. There aren't a lot of bright tones, which doesn't bother me since I gravitate towards mid/ dark tones naturally. The brush nib also isn't too soft, which is another great thing.
Biggest gripe I have with these markers is that the labels rub off very easily( couple of mine came with the labels partially smudged off, and other labels started to smudge off after a week of use). I wish they would sell individual markers along with the set so you don't have to buy a whole new set to get a refill of the color you ran out of. The markers also fray after using them for a while(mine frayed after a week of use), so that is also something to be wary of( but customer service is great with dealing with this problem if they can help.)
Overall, these markers are really great for their price, and especially great for people who want to experiment with brush markers. Definitely will buy a third time lol
I use mine with my copics marker and they work well together.
I love these markers, they are a great value, the brush tip is invaluable. I took these on vacation and several members of my family used them and love them.
One thing to note, the name/marking of the color on the end of the marker wears off. I am going to seal mine with nail polish before they all wear off. Since the colors are not true to the lid color you really need the number on the top to go by with a color guide. Note in my picture, there is one in the front where the name of the color is no longer there, towards the left back, RP1 is starting to come off.
