great color easy to use but DON'T DROP them Jun 27, 2009
I read the reviews that complained about the brittle fill in these pencils and they are all true, if you accidentally drop one or in my case the cat knocked the box off the table you have pretty much useless color pencils and the leads have shattered and you cannot sharpen past them.
Loved the colors and blendability wish my pencils were still useable as ot seems the leads are broken about 3/16 inch apart.

Lead Breaking Nightmare Jan 12, 2011
By S. Dove
When I opened up my package of colored pencils I was so excited to use them. I started drawing with light wide strokes, the colors were vivid and blended together nicely.
Then as soon as I wanted to darken an area... the lead fell out...! I decided just to use another similar color. Everything was fine for like two minutes then the lead broke out of this pencil too! So I tried a third pencil with the same results.
I sharpened the three broken pencils and went back to drawing. Within minutes all three pencils were broken again.
I guess these pencils would be nice for very light drawing. I would not recommend these pencils.

These are VERY fragile Feb 17, 2009
My prismacolors were definitly a good investment. However, colored pencils break very easily when dropped and a few of the leads in mine were broken when I received them. I do not feel like they were packaged properly.

Disappointing WASTE of money! Apr 24, 2010
"CPA (cats purring always!)"
My granddaughter is an aspiring anime artist. I wanted to give her a NICE set of colored pencils but wasn't ready to spend $100 on a set at her age. She uses this brand in her art class, so I thought this set would be a good quality choice at a reasonable price. She was excited to receive them on Christmas. But these pencils are TERRIBLE! They are brittle and constantly break, are impossible to sharpen, and they do not color smoothly or evenly! She said that the cheap ones from the craft store are better, and these are now going unused. We will splurge on a better set for her birthday. Don't waste your money on these!

Nice set, but not Premier by any means! Aug 27, 2009
This was my first set of Prismacolor's I got. And everyone told me they would be a great starting tool saying that if I start out with the Premier I might press to hard and break the lead...I dont think that was good advise for me being a older starter, I wish I would have just started with the Premier. Although, I do see for some younger starters this would be a GrEaT starting set.
The colors are virant and wonderful compared to Crayola...I dont think I could pick up a Crayola colored pencil again! Compared to the Premier pencils though, they go much quicker then them...meaning I have to sharpen them much more than Premier...so they will not last as long, therfor the price you pay for Premier is worth every penny!
