This pack has a great variety and I have enjoyed using them
I buy Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils over, and over, and over again. They have so many colors and they blend so well. This pack has a great variety and I have enjoyed using them. Prismacolor Pencils are so easy to blend, the colors you can create are endless. Below is an example of what I've done with Prismacolor Pencils.

Great Product ruined by Poor Shipping
Prismacolor seriously makes the best colored pencils on earth, I buy them frequently and they're the only colored pencils I use. They are pricey but worth every penny. My problem was with the shipping, when you tap the soft core pencils (or any pencil for that matter) on any surface, even your desk, you risk breaking the lead inside. When that happens the pencils tip breaks everytime you attempt to sharpen it. This isn't a problem I've had with Prismacolors purchased from art supply stores (and I take my own care not to rough up my pencils)- I purchased this kit because the price was really good, but they arrived in a small box with little packing material, and I was slightly concerned that the lead would break when sharpened. That's exactly what happened, all the shaking, bumping and whatever from the shipping process caused them to break constantly when sharpened (frustrating to watch your money go into the trash as you sharpen and re-sharpen a pencil over and over). My advice is that the product is great, colors are vibrant and amazing and great for your colored pencil needs. But like anything you value, make sure you treat them well and that they arrive to you having received the same care, otherwise the money saved isn't worth it at all.

Great way to try out the prismacolor range without having to spend a lot. I know they created this set as a Manga set but would have liked to see some brighter colord in the verithins. Since I got this set and tried to colors from it I can go ahead and order the bigger set. More pencil companies should do this.

fantastic colors and quality for sketching and coloring
The quality of these pencils is superb, the soft core is just the right consistency for sketching and filling in as well. I love the array of colors in this set as well, making it useful again for sketching and for filling in pictures/coloring. The core does not break easily and sharpens very well.

Prismacolor pencils are legendary in my family!
The renowned quality of Prismacolor pencils makes them a staple in my art loving family. I was delighted to purchase these for my niece's 13th birthday when she asked for them by brand name. She gets hours of enjoyment drawing her own artwork and designs with them.

I love it. It's smoother than regular color pencils and I truly like that it came with burgundy, which seems a rather "hard to find" color in color pencils and markers. Price could be better but then again, it could be worse too...I recommend this!

Just buy them now!
I just got them today, the shipping was fast and early the colors are amazing! So vibrant and work really well! I HIGHLY recomend this to anybody, even you are not trying to make a manga they work really well! I will add a photo soon of my results but. ANYTHING Prismacolor is HQ and works REALLY well... but if you dont really like Prismacolor that much and I don't know why you wouldn't. But Copic markers are just as good but..more pricey I have never used them but my friends have. ANYWAY BUY IT :D

My daughter is obsessed with anything Manga right now, and these were a must-have for her on her birthday. Just be careful that you don't order doubles if you are getting other marker sets. Of course, the artist you're getting them for probably won't mind anyway :)

Not as vibrant as I wanted
I jumped on the coloring bandwagon this year and needed some colored pencils. I like these but do not love them. The color is very light and it is very hard to get any richness out of it. Doesn’t seem to matter how many times you color over it, it doesn’t seem to darken. They are still good pencils just not the color vibrancy I was expecting.

I'd almost guess these were knockoffs. They don't have the pop of other prismacolor pencil colors nor the lead softness. Haven't encountered the breakage when sharpening, but haven't wanted to use enough to need sharpening. Got a better set in the art/craft store. Would not buy again.
