The Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 20 piece colour pencil set is a combination of the highest lightfastness and the smoothness of a permanent lead. Every shade has been formulated using finely-ground pigments chosen for their purity, intensity and resistance to UV. Colours can be blended, burnished and layered on a variety of surfaces. The casing is made of California Cedar from managed forests. The smoothness of the Luminance 6901 leads require the use of a well-sharpened pencil sharpener. The pencil cap indicates the colour of the pencil lead.

I bought a 72 color set of lesser premium professional pencils, then used this selection to fill out the spectrum of brights and skin tones. These sit deeper in the paper than the American flagship brand, and have a more matte surface. The brands blend well enough on their own, but a colorless wax blender pencil was a good investment for the less expensive brand.
Sanguine Russet is a treasure in itself, with the rosy underglow you see in some darker skin tones. The 20 color selection doesn't duplicate the ultramarine and blue violet shades, which would bother me if it was all I had, but offers a Prussian blue in a class of its own, and a true blue with a related tint. There are three landscape greens.
The three yellows fill in missing slots in my pencil folio case, and I would have coveted this set for those alone. I just fanned them out on deep green pastel paper, along with the white, and they are popping off the page at me. It happens to be Easter morning, and crocuses are up between the snow patches outside. Oh my.
The box they come in is totally perfect to carry them outside, but I've transferred them to a case with my big set. We will go outside now.
Colors that come in this set are as follows; black, slate grey, raw umber, burnt sienna, perylene brown, russet, dark sap green, grass green, spring green, prussian blue, phthalocyanine blue, light cobalt blue, manganese violet, permanent red, anthraquinoid pink, orange, yellow ochre golden bismuth yellow, lemon yellow, and white. IDK if the set comes in random colors but if anyone else gets other colors other than what I have listed, then please let me know down in the comment section.
I have attached a pic using only 20 of these colors which was extremely challenging not having a variety. The hawk was done using prisma, poly, and these luminance.
Now, for the Color. At first try, they didn't seem to be any different from the Prismacolor Premier, which is my go-to that I adore. But, if you use a blender, these blend out further and are softer than even the Premier line ( Is that even possible?). They go on things I have already pretty much burnished, and they feel so smooth on the paper. They work well with Gamsol, and the blender from Caran D'ache is a gem which I love better than the Prismacolor blender, which sounds and feels so scratchy compared to this one. Note, it doesn't come with a blender.
Do I love them? Yes. Will I buy more. Yes, but it will take some time, since the price is pretty steep.
If you are just starting out, are these the best for you? Probably not. They are expensive, and unless you use colored pencils a lot, you may not want to foot the bill when there is a second best option out there priced like the Premier line is. But, for those of you that breath colored pencils, who suffer Colored Pencil withdrawals when doing Inktober, this is most definitely the royalty of the colored pencils world.
I do not like the color range, the biggest set you can get is only 76 colors. I bought the 20 from Amazon and later purchased the 76 on Black Friday from Jerrys. I feel that pinks are really limited and wish there were more greens and blues as well. I also love that they use FSC wood meaning that it’s made from sustainable sources. From a value standpoint if you are using these in a coloring book like me they aren’t the best value. They Prismacolor and Polychromos have a much bigger range of colors, are cheaper and do a reasonable job of blending. However these are the best money can buy in terms of blending and lightfastness IMHO.
If you are considering buying colored pencils for coloring check the type of paper used in the coloring books. I found that these pencils worked well on Menuet De Bonheur, Hanna Karlzons books, Twilight Garden which have a matt finish and not as well on Tenderful Enchantments which has a slick surface.
