Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 Lightfast Pencils is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 252810.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MOST EXTRAORDINARY COLORED PENCIL No other colored pencil compares to Luminance: it is indeed in a category all by itself. I began with Prismacolor (wax) pencils, then tried Koh-I-Noor (wax, I really like them), then Caran d'Ache Pablo (oil) and finally C d'A Luminance. The Luminance pencils are so luxurious, like coloring with paint or chalk--they lay down softly but the leads are really strong and don't break easily. It's hard to explain the difference between wax-based colored pencils and oil-based, but once you try oil-based, you FEEL AND SEE the difference in the color quality, the texture, and the blending capacities. They aren't cheap, that's for sure, but they are worth it, and I don't know if I can ever use wax pencils again. It's like I drove a Honda Civic for a long time, and then got a Bentley or some such luxury car: you can never go back to riding around in a Honda (not that I would know what it feels like to drive around in a Bentley....)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caran d'Ache color pencils The only medium I use now is color pencils. Caran d'Ache luminous are the best color pencils I own. I use them mostly for doing animals as the colors are suttle yet they are strong in density. They are a very smooth pencil and the leads, being on the harder side, don't wear down as fast as some waxier ones. I try to order open stock to keep my complete set as they are pricey but if you are serious about your work they are very much worth the expense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colors and quality Love these pencils, I've used Prismacolor for years but due to quality problems I am getting more and more of the Luminance now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for detail Work! I was very disappointed when Prismacolor Lightfast color pencils were discontinued. I have been searching for another lightfast brand for all the detail work in my drawings. I just fell in love with the 6901 Lightfast pencils. They give brilliant detail and beautiful crisp lines. I also love the fact that they don't fade out when you blend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best in it's class. I've worked with most of the colored pencil brands out there. This pencil is unique and expensive. It's a waxed based pencil that has a smooth, almost pastel chalk-like feel. I have not experienced any wax bloom and they blend beautifully. They are also compatable with oil based pencils. I'm especially happy with the lighter shades which I use to smooth-out and burnish the bottom layers. Love them.
