I received a Shock Pink marker in a September '21 box that was repackaged as a sort of "art supply date" for Valentine's day. I was pretty impressed with it! The marker tip is stiff and the paint flows out well. Maybe a bit TOO well...I noticed the chamber was close to empty by the time I finished my test drawing, which was a real shame. The nice thing about this item however is there are refills and replacement marker tips available, so you can re-fill and re-use the pens. I tend to shy away from art supplies that have to be thrown away once the ink runs out, so this to me is a nice feature. The pigment is nice and rich, and water-soluble so you can use it like a regular paint also. I don't know if I'd go running for a whole set of these paint markers, but I enjoyed my time with this item.
