Unlike Raffine & Renoir, I believe these pencils are wax based as they feel very different to laydown; not as sticky. Even though this looks to be the case they perform just as well as the Raffines in blending and mixing colours together. As you can see in my picture the blends are pretty seamless, the end result matching the quality of more expensive pencils.
It was very surprising to me just how much colour saturation these pencils release even with a light pressure, therefore they're perfect for anyone with different weights of stroke, beginners and advanced colourists.
These pencils erase brilliantly well to say they're wax, which normally don't. A hard pressure on these pencils will leave some dust, so make sure you blow this off before sweeping your hand over or you will get smudging. They sharpen very well, even with the rather rudimentary included sharpener. I've had no breakages as yet, so although they're quite light and insubstantial in the hand, they seem well made & durable.
I was given these pencils in exchange for an honest review. You can find them on Amazon here:
