Lovely little set. If you plan on using these for adult coloring books, I'd recommend using them solely as accents as gel pens will run out quite quickly if you use them for large areas of color and these pens in particular are very striking and more well suited to highlight regular pencil or pen. They also work great for letter and note writing, I'm definitely gonna crack these out again at christmas and birthdays.
These pens have a unique cool, diamond shaped design and come in four different styles.
Water Chalk: Heavy Pastel style colors. Better for large areas, but won't play well with absorbent paper.
Flash Pen: Gorgeous iridescent metallic colours in every shade, that shimmer beautifully in the light. Perfect for accents or smaller areas. My favourite of the four.
Color Diamond: Fluorescent and bright colors that layer on thinner, but give a pop of bright color.
Diamond: A more subtle, glittering metallic that comes in many pretty shades.
The only negative these suffer from are the same negatives as any gel pens, but for this price and the range of colors these are absolutely a steal! If you have a tendency to lean on the side of the pen, with any gel pen, you'll find that sometimes the color doesn't flow as easy, so I'd recommend retraining yourself to lean on the end of the point instead.
Protip: If the color does stop flowing as well, stroking the end of the pen flatly gently across some paper once or twice will get if flowing smoothly again.
