I started with prismacolor pencils (which is how I learned their color system), then decided to get art stix for larger areas. These are easy to use and the colors are vibrant. They don't get all over your hands.
The prismacolor pencils have colorless blender pencils available. These do too - in stick form. As far as I can tell, they're all made of the same thing, they're just different shapes. There arent any blenders in the box - you have to buy them separately.
Just like with paintings, color pencil drawings look better with many layers (called washes when painting), and the first layer I do is flat colors filling the whole page, and these are perfect for filling big areas and back grounds that would take for ever with a pencil.
Also when I draw portraits, or drawings with lots of blank area behind, they are great for filling in some color. They blend really well, and also I've used these both with Prismacolor pencils, and cheaper brands, and they mix just fine.
Be carefull to not use them to hard, you don't want to much wax buildup to early if you want to go over with pencils some more, light pressure adds lot of color :3
I've been meaning to get a set Art Stix forever. The sample Stix that come in larger sets of the pencils have always intrigued me and I've always found a use for them, but I hadn't gone out of my way to purchase any. Well, until now.
They're the same super soft, blendable core of Prisma pencils but without the wood. If you a) work on larger pieces b) tend to burn through a specific color a lot c) like the look and feel of colored pencils but wish you could have bigger, bolder marks, then you should get these. I recommend getting the full set (this one) if you can, because even this set has a relatively limited color palette (in comparison to the pencils which has is somewhere around 150 colors now, give or take. I don't remember the exact number, but it's definitely more than 48!)
Unfortunately, the grays have been kind of skimped over, as have peachy flesh tones, but there are more than enough colors in here to create any color that you need. I really like that it comes with the metallic silver and gold.
One other minor complaint is that they don't come chromatically arranged. If they were numbered or named, you could just use the reference on the back to arrange them. I mean, it's not all that hard to organize them, but it would be nice if they came in the 'right' order or if the names were somewhere on them. If you're already familiar with the pencil shades then you should be able to name the colors pretty easily, though.
They DO have a tendency to slightly rub off on your hands, but not too terribly. It's nothing like Conte crayons or chalk pastels, but it might be enough to annoy some people. I'm not really all that bothered by it.
Conclusion: I think this is a great addition to anyone's colored pencil stash. I give it five stars because the quality of the product more than outweighs what small issues it has (which don't affect the quality of the product itself anyway).
