I saw a lot of reviews about a few dried out markers in the 120 so I swatched mine immediately and they are fine! In fact some are so juicy that they splattered a bit when uncapping so be careful around your art. These are extremely pigmented and blend well. They are second to copics. Only downside is they aren't refillable. But believe me. If you want to start playing with alcohol markers but don't want to spend $7 a marker on copics, get these! There's really no other alcohol ink markers that work as well as these at this price point. I also got the skin tone set. There are some duplicates in the skin tone set (y4, y9, y12, yr5, r18, r19, r20, r21, and br2). But who doesn't need extra skin tones?
