120 Colors Reaeon Colored Gel Pens

I love that everyone is into adult coloring now. I have always colored here and there, but admit i do it more now that I have a few of my own books.

 For great pictures, you need great colors,Not all pens work well for large spaces, but I was happy to find that these do. The tips are not super fine or sharp, so they didn't rip the pages.
The color applies smoothly, with no clumps or runs so far. I had two pens out of the bunch that kind of stuttered, they would color for a few strokes and then freeze up mid stroke. A little scribbling on scrap paper corrected the flow, but it still felt scratchy when shading, so I just use those two for writing and not coloring. Aside from that, I had no issues with these. the colors are beautiful and look great on paper, especially the glittery ones.

I like the variety of colors included and love that they come with refills. The refills are in a bulk package and each one has a plastic cap to prevent leaking, so I can store them until I need them. There are neons, pastels, glitters and even multi colored pens in this set, which my daughter loved. 

The description says 120 colors, but the refills look like the same colors as the pens, or at least most of them do. I think it is closer to 60 colors with 60 matching refills. You can only use 1 color per pen at a time, so that was not a problem for me, but be warned if you are expecting 120 actual different shades. Unless I somehow got the wrong package of refills, that was not the case.
