Overall satisfied Update: would recommend for beginners

Update: ive had this set for a couple or few weeks now. As i have not had much spare time i havent gotten a lot done with these but i will say, from my original review, yes i would still recommend them-for hobbyists& beginners. For the price and quantity you cant beat it as they are a good quality as well. My only issue is that for the 72 pencils included, i feel as though some of them arent different. For yellows included their names are: wheat, cream mimosa, light khaki, champagne yellow…

Pros
  • Have as a gift
Cons
  • The set does not include any metallic or neon colors

Beautiful Colored Pencils in a Great Tin Box!

I was very impressed with the varied color selection and the packaging. These pencils were neatly divided into 3 layers in a tin box. I love this tin box. The pencils will be safe inside and wouldn't get damaged. I haven't used my pencils yet, but they arrived quickly and came in nearly perfect condition each pencil was sharpened. There were 3 pencils that the tips had broken off, but a pencil sharpener will fix that right up. I did receive 2 emails from the company that provided at least 5 or…

Pros
  • ‎72 Count (Pack of 1)
Cons
  • The colors may not blend well together

I bought these as a present.

I bought these as well as a couple of sketch pads for a 10 year old niece who has artistic talent and is very interested and involved in "Art," both at home and in school. I never saw the items, they were shipped to her house in time for Christmas but judging by what she told me on the phone, she was very happy with them and I was happy to help her with the tools she needs to advance her love of art. I recommend this product based on this experience.

Pros
  • Great value! So many colors and love that they come in their own case!
Cons
  • Some colors may appear washed out or faded

Yes, they are as good as everyone is saying.

I’ve never really been one to shade and color well, but I guess these pencils opened my creativity! They really are a good colored pencil. I had lost my good set and I have to say that this set was only supposed to be a replacement until I can find my "good ones.” Well these are better than those so I’m glad that I bought these.2nd point of interest, they sharpen very well. I have a challenging time with colored pencils splitting so much that even trying to get a sharper point is futile. These…

Pros
  • Grandchildren love the colored pencils.
Cons
  • The colors may not transfer well onto certain types of paper

For Adult Coloring on my review.

I use them for adult coloring. They are very blendable and have rich color. I tried them with a Prismacolor colorbless blending pencil and it didn't work well, perhaps because the Prismacolor blending pencil works the best on wax-based colored pencils only. I then used the Koh-I-Noor Polycolor blending pencil and it blends these zenacolor colored pencils better and I figure it is because the Koh-I-Noor brand's colored pencils are oil-based as well.

Pros
  • Love it!
Cons
  • The pencils may leave marks or smudges

Great color pencils!

I definitely enjoyed this set right away! You get a great variety of different colors and shades for a great reasonable price. These pencils are very sturdy, they don’t break easily for me compared to other brands. All the colors, light to dark, are creamy and easily able to blend (which I loved). As some of the other reviews have said, they are numbered individually and specifically given a name to each and yes the trays provided are flimsy, so it’d be nicer if they were sturdier. And the…

Pros
  • Easy-to-use
Cons
  • The pencil tips may break easily

They look so fancy!

Just received my pencils! The tin box is so pretty. I am moving "up" from the Crayola brand to this set to do my anatomy and my physiology coloring books. I feel like I needed special pencils to get the motivation going and here they are. The delivery arrived at 6 pm and it was killing me! But they look good I will update when I use them.Update: they are amazing! All I have ever used has been Crayola coloring pencils and these are way brighter. I really recommend them if you are a beginner to…

Pros
  • Overall excellent set
Cons
  • The tin was dented on the left bottom corner.

Good Quality for the price

The reason I am giving four stars is below.The pencils are nice, it is a good product for the price, but I feel some of the colors need a bit more pressure than others to get a vibrant color. I am not a professional artist ( I am using these pencils for Bible journaling); maybe I am not coloring or handling the pencils correctly. I am sure there is a technique for coloring, but I hope to find some good tutorials that show me how to color correctly.If you just started to color, whether it is…

Pros
  • Vibrant colors!
Cons
  • The set is not suitable for children under 3 years of age

Pretty good set good for me

Pretty good colored pencils. Harder than Prismacolor, but a bit softer then Crayola. They don’t break as often as Crayola does, and don’t need to be sharpened as often as the softer Prismacolors. The color choices are decent, though there are some shades I wish they had included. Some of the included shades are very, very similar to each other. Some of the names on the colors seem inaccurate, and on many of the pencils, the color of the outside of the pencil isn’t anywhere near the actual color

Pros
  • The set includes 72 different colored pencils, so you have a huge range of colors to choose from
Cons
  • The set may not include any metallic effects

Delivery of pigment exceeded my expectations!

I use Prismacolor Pencils because of the intensity of the pigment and ease of application, for that reason, I reserve use of them for my artworks. For the adult coloring books, I wanted a pencil that delivered the same kind of intensity of pigment and ease of application. Some pencil brands are so waxy that you have to press harder or layer multiple times and it still looks faded out. After reading the reviews for Zenacolor Pencils I decided to take a chance based on the reviews. Sure enough…

Pros
  • Great colored pencils, wonderful color and blendability.
Cons
  • The pencils may not be as vibrant as other sets

Good for beginners and coloring books

It's my first set of color pencils I got for coloring books. I am very happy, they are soft, color is intense enough to use with other medium like markers (used with black sharpie in my photo), and the color selection is very decent. I was missing a light green color, and got two other greens, and skin colors are missing. But I just purchased a couple of Prismacolor pencils separately. Prismacolor is definitely softer, and is better for blending, but you cannot beat the price of this set!

Pros
  • Painting, Drawing & Art Supplies
Cons
  • The set may not include any fluorescent colors

Great Value for the price

These pencils are really good quality for the price. My only complaint is that there are too many yellows that are almost the same. The blues, reds and brown palettes are good but could use additional shades of grey and better skin tones. I went to Blick and augmented with their house brand which is very comparable. But for an amateur like me, they are fine. Getting some tips breaking when sharpening but could be my cheepo sharpener. I would buy again.

Pros
  • Each pencil is numbered, which makes it easy to keep track of which colors you've used and which ones you still need to use
Cons
  • The set may not include any soft or muted pastels

very smooth coloring, good selection of colors

I like the way the pencils lay down the color; they are smooth and the colors are bright. What was really amazing was the price. I am just an old lady who likes to color in the adult coloring books. I have a set of hard core pencils but the colors are not as bright. Then when I started looking at soft-core pencils, the difference in prices was incredible. This set had good reviews so I tried it even though it was a lot cheaper. I am very glad I did!

Pros
  • ‎No
Cons
  • The set may not include any true reds or oranges

Check all three trays against the color chart!

The colors and quality look amazing . but I'm very glad I sat down immediately to fill in the color chart and go through all three trays. I didn't get three different trays of pencils the first time around! The bottom tray in my first box was a duplicate of the second - all the red pencils, half the green pencils, and most of the brown pencils were missing.

Pros
  • ‎BMS International
Cons
  • The set may not include any jewel tones

Vibrant & Smooth on my review.

Colors are beautiful and vibrant. The quality is surprisingly good, very buttery and smooth. The only issue I saw with the pack was there are two Champagne Yellows and missing Canary Yellow. I still gave it 5 stars because the two champagne yellows are distinct colors so clearly it was a misprint.

Pros
  • They are quite affordable, despite their high quality
Cons
  • The set may not include any warm browns

Good for a beginner

These are good basic colored pencils set for adult coloring. The naming/numbering system is odd, but that is ok. They are not creamy or soft. They will be good for sturdy paper and a light hand hand for shading.

Pros
  • ‎1.61 pounds
Cons
  • The set may not include any blues or greens

Great pencils for beginners

I am not an avid artist. I bought these colored pencils for my daughter who is 10 yrs old. She really enjoys these pencils over her Crayola. She considers these a huge step up. She tends to press very hard on her pencils and I have had to show her how not to press so hard but still receive the same results. Some colors are softer than others. Some you have to press harder than others. I really want to stress that the paper you use does matter. Some of the bad reviews are based on the lack of…

Pros
  • The pencils are very versatile, so you can use them for a wide variety of art projects
Cons
  • The set may not include enough range in color saturation

Easy Blend, Many Colors, Excellent Presentation

These pencils are great fun! They come in a metal storage case with 3 trays of pencils which are all sharpened and ready to go! You can use the tin lid to put one of the trays so you have protected and easy access to 2 pallets of pencils. The pencils are softer than I'm used to, but I discovered it makes blending easy without the pencils being messy. The colors fill in nicely when doing a single color or blend, as needed. The pencils also come with a coloring sheet, and you can sign up to…

Pros
  • Zenacolor pencils are made of high-quality materials, so you can trust that they will last a long time
Cons
  • The colors may not be suitable for all skin types

Best Value good for me

I have used my Zenacolor pencils for the past few days and I am very satisfied with their quality, especially their softness, which facilitates my propensity for shading and vignetting both in coloring books and freestyle drawing. An additional quality which differentiates these pencils from their competitors is the labeling of each pencil with a name and number along with its color coating, making color selection easy and very accurate. The sturdy metal case, an included color-number chart and

Pros
  • Pencils
Cons
  • The set may not include any pastel colors

Fantastic Pencils for my opinion

I recently got into doing more coloring with pencils and I have been trying different brands. Zenacolor was very well packaged; pencils are individually numbered and labeled with the color and they give you a color chart to set up as well. I am not in the least disappointed that I decided to try these pencils.

Pros
  • The set comes in a sturdy storage box, which makes it easy to keep your pencils organized and protected
Cons
  • The set may not work well with all types of paper
