These markers are amazing! I bought them when they first came out even though I have plenty of other alcohol markers. These ones are just special and I knew they would be worth it. They really are good as the high priced markers I already own. They don't leave streaks, they blend well, they do not smell awful, they are well pigmented and I love the brush feature! But best of all is the price! You will be very happy with these, I promise.
