These are good colors for the most part, I would have preferred the yellow to be brighter and less orange. A good selection and a low price. This is the first set of pens I have bought. I make cards and wanted to begin using pens to color my images instead of pencils or water colors. While these are not exactly artist quality coloring pens,(they are listed as highlighters and have a square tip on one end, not a brush) they do blend well and the colors are vivid. They do bleed through the paper, all alcohol markers do that, but they don't leak through the paper or get too wet. Mixing colors takes a bit of practice, but I suppose that goes with any coloring venue. These are a good value for the money. I am happy with the purchase.
