I have been wanting a set of these for quite awhile so I was thrilled when UPS came to my door. The shipping was fast and these wonderful pencils were packaged quite well.

BTW – I am not an artist, I am just a coloring enthusiast.


This set comes with 72 unique colored pencils and two pencil sharpeners in a storage tin. The pencils are stored on two trays. They come pre-sharpened and has a bare wood barrel with a glossy dipped tip that shows the lead color. These colored pencils do not have names for their colors, just numbers and are not in order by shade.


Here is what they look like when I am in a hurry and am coloring very fast:


Like Marco Raffine colored pencils these Marco Renoir are oil-based. The difference I found is that they feel much creamier to lay down on the page. If you’re looking for something much softer that is easier to blend I would give these a try. Above I colored some different flowers and below you can see what happened when I blended them with some Gamsol and some blending stumps.

I really like how these flowers turned out!


Another difference between Marco Raffine colored pencils these Marco Renoir colored pencils is the price. A 72 set of Marco Raffine will cost about $20 while a 72 set of Marco Renoir costs about $50. Do I think they are worth the difference? Yes. I do feel like they are a slightly better quality than the Raffines. If you cannot afford the Renoirs then do get the Raffines. I use both and am so very pleased with them all.

      That is a great question! I just pulled them both out and the colors are similar but they do not appear to be the same. Just me a second and I will post a small comparison I just made…

    • Dani says:

      It is usually the wax colored pencils that blossom out and Marco Renoir are oil based colored pencils. That said, I do not experience any blooming when I use them.

    Thanks for this review! I have several persons in my family of varying ages that are enjoying adult coloring books and I have been invited to enjoy a page from time to time, but have never been satisfied with the quality of the pencils used. This gives me some very good information. Happy to be your neighbor at #MondayofManyBlessingsLinkup.

Let me know what you think or if you have a question!
