I saw these online and thought, OMG I love these, I must have them! I read through the reviews carefully, pleased with the good comments yet a bit worried about the uncomplimentary, but decided to take a risk on them. They came very well packaged, in a plain cardboard box well taped up. None of them had leaked. I checked through all of them, and a few of the pens didn't work. A short while after, more than a few's brushes came off. I was disappointed immensely. The colours are beautiful and no duplicates. I don't know if I got a bad set but the next set I buy I hope to be a bit more well-made.
