    I also bought Ali's, but they are fake and not waterproof. Kruidvat also had a set for sale in May and they are great. They are waterproof, nice and of good color. They were in stock last week for half price, so I bought a second set. I don't have the real microns, so I don't know if these are any better.

    Nice review! I also bought a number of sizes of those pens from Ali and I also have the impression that they run out much faster... from now on I will buy them here at the art store.

    Nice comparison! Unfortunately, more counterfeit items of lower quality are for sale on Ali. By the way, it seems to me that the bottom line does smudge a bit with the highlighter, or is that just my screen?

    Coincidentally, I was looking for this this weekend and also came across AliExpress. It didn't occur to me that the quality would be any different. So thank you for your review!

    I also use Staedler pens and both my wallet and I are very happy with them 😀

  6. As I said on Facebook, I like Staedler's too. I use them in class and they are cheaper and still last quite a long time.

    I have often noticed that more expensive items are also effectively better in quality when it comes to drawing materials. I don't mind buying quality either. It is my hobby/profession.

    This is good tips. Good idea to try and see how it turns out. I think the marker is very nice to see in the photo. Nice thin line.

    Maybe a tip: I use Papermate writing markers. These are pens like markers but write like fineliners. And you have them in all colors of the rainbow. Although the black one is also my favorite. 😉 Here in France all teenagers write with them at school, I got the tip from my daughter, and they are therefore for sale in the supermarket.

    Too bad the pens from AliExpress are not as good as the more expensive ones from a Dutch store! What a good idea to test them both. Really useful article 🙂

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
