Pricey but Really Nice

I resisted because of the price but I bought the basic set of 20 and now I just add what I find I still need. I love the texture and pigment and I would be thrilled if I could afford every colour!

Great pencil

Very smooth and buttery. Lays down rich colour. It’s a softer pencil so maybe not the best if you need sharp lines. I just bought one because of the price, but it’s a nice addition to my small collection. I’d buy it again if I need another colour.
