There are many excellent colored pencil brands available today, with some of the premier labels being Caran D'Arche (Switzerland), Conté (France), Faber Castell (Germany), Talens (the Netherlands) and Koh-i-noor (Czech Republic). Each pencil brand has its own loyal following, and it is certainly true that the performance characteristics of each leaves a unique "signature" on paper (i.e., the experienced eye can sometimes tell which brand of pencil was used for a piece of artwork by examining luminosity, reflection, depth of color, and other characteristics). I have used all these brands myself, having brought back from Europe entire sets from various manufacturers, and often in different sub types ("artist," "student," and so on). Some also have added touches that really make a pencil set shine, including rounded triangular shafts with subtle inlaid grips, bonded coatings between the lead and the pencil wood to minimize lead shattering, and soft textured surfaces for improved gripping and comfort. Some sets are even now beginning to adhere to the lightfastness specifications as developed by the Colored Pencil Society of America.

So, what should we think about a set of American made colored pencils when they are competing with these premier brands, some of which have been in business for centuries? The answer might be surprising to hear. After using all these brands for an extended period of time, I can say that these Prismacolor "Premier" pencils easily hold their own against the world's best colored pencils.

What are the characteristics of the Prismacolor "Premier" pencils that make them so good?

1. Smooth, silky, and rich lay down of color
2. Little smearing, even when laying down dense patches of color
3. Ability to blend colors as needed

I purchased these on the advice of my botanical illustration instructor. They are not the colored pencils of your childhood! Soft cores allow the color to glide on smoothly -- I am using the recommended Bristol paper, but have had good results with regular drawing paper too. They are easily blendable. So far I have not had any issues sharpening them; unlike lower quality pencils, the Prismacolors don't tend to break as easily in a hand-held sharpener. However, other students who tried to use the classroom wall-mounted sharpener reported some breakage. Advice: Get a decent hand-held sharpener or two when you order.

I've added a photo of one of my first drawings done with the Prismacolor pencils.

I like them so much that I ordered the 48-color set.

Edit added 3-14-15: I like them so much that I now am the proud owner of the deluxe 150-pencil set. <bliss>

This is a great set. Prismacolors are worth the praise they always get. They are creamy and smooth. I've had no breakage and they come in a nice tin. I think they are vivid and blend very well. It comes with a good variety of colors for a 24 pencil set. I highly recommend these!

I bought these to use in my Enchanted Forest coloring book.

It's a beautiful coloring book so I wanted to get something that wouldn't bleed through (like markers) and would allow me to blend nicely and get great color payoff without having to press hard and dig into the paper.

I always hated Roseart and Crayola colored pencils. And hoenstly until 2 days ago I had no idea that better quality colored pencils existed. Seriously had no clue lmao.

I tried to look for cheaper options first. But every review I read for cheaper brands that were "knock offs" of this (stated by many reviewers) were very mixed and mostly bad when compared to these.

And no matter what brand I looked at it always came back to these! So I splurged and bought this. And boy am I happy I did!

Great color payoff, the colors are true to what they look like they'll be, and not a single pencil was "dull" in color. And they don't have that awful "shine" Crayola and Roseart get.
All of the colors are soft, but it seems the darkest colors in the bunch are the creamiest. The pencils come already sharpened and don't even get me started on the cute little tin case!

By far the nicest set of pencils I've ever seen!
Very VERY happy with this purchase and will GLADLY purchase again.

I used to draw all the time. Now as a mom of five I really don't have much free time, but I recently got some of the Dover adult coloring books to decompress at the end of the day. I remembered loving my Prismacolor colored pencils as a teen, and went back to them. I shopped around a little and watched the price fluctuate on Amazon for a bit before springing for them, since paying this much for colored pencils is kind of tough even though I already knew their value.

For richness and color selection, these can't be beat. They are miles ahead of Crayola. The only problem is if they get dropped, the lead breaks into a million pieces inside the pencil and as you sharpen it, the point just keeps breaking off. After spending the money on these, having that happen is a little heartbreaking. And with all these kids, it is a miracle they haven't gotten their hands on more than just a few. I caught my two year old using them as drumsticks.

As a bit of an aside, if you are a parent of a teen who loves to draw - my dad took me to an art supplies store when I was in high school and let me pick out a set of these and I still have several of them. The experience still stands out in my mind as one of my favorite things my dad did for me - he spent money on these really nice pencils because he knew it was what I was into. (I went on to become a nurse).

The lead crumbling in the pencil knocked it down a star, and if that could be fixed, these babies would be like Kryptonite.
