Colleen 60 Coloured Pencils No. 787 Review

I finally got my hands on Colleen 60 Coloured Pencils No. 787! My sisters and I went a little crazy online and the three of us bought one set each. ( >x< )

This set of colours comes in a cardboard box packaging just like it's sister Colleen 60 Coloured Pencils No. 785. There are 30 hexagonal shaped pencils with dual tips for each one. The pencils came unsharpened just like No. 785. Instead of names of the colours, this set has numbers as colour codes stamped on the left side of the pencil with the first numbers indicates the colour on the left side and the second number for the right side.

The leads on this set are the same as it's sister which makes me quite happy about it since it does not break easily and sharpening them is not a task I dread (except sharpening all 60 tips in one shot!).

These pencil colours are just as good as Colleen No. 785. They glide easily across the paper and blends really well. There are 6 neon colours in this set. I did notice that the lead for the 6 neon pencils are a bit softer and tend to crumble a little when pressured, but still acceptable to me.

The swatches for each side:

In conclusion, I am happy with this set as I am happy with my first Colleen. I would definitely recommend these colour pencils for those colouring fans out there. ( ^_^ )
