I like the color selection in this set. They give you a pretty good range of pastels of any hues to choose from, and some of them make for pretty good fair skin tones. My biggest issue with the set is with the selection of purples. Included is a saturated purples that certainly can't be considered pastel (BV736, BV738). I own a set of six purple Le Plume markers and one of the colors (BV733) appears in this set. Why they didn't decide to include the other two lighter purples that appear in that set (V742, V744) here is beyond me.
There's also a non-pastel green, orange, and brown in this set (G636, O835, OY848 respectively), so I feel those three slots could have gone to other lighter colors in the Uchida color library, if applicable. If the issue is that those colors were added after this set's inception, then I think an update is an idea I would fully support.
As for the markers themselves, the ink quality is nice and none of the markers show signs of not having enough ink in them. The caps don't exactly match the ink's color, but that isn't a problem if you just go by paper swatches like I do. My one nitpick would have to be one of my blues came with a noticeable shorter nib than the others, but it works just fine so I'm not too concerned about it.
This may sound like I actually hate these markers, but I don't. I've purchased several Le Plume markers in the past and wouldn't mind buying more.
