This set does not even contain a purple colored pencil! There is "magenta" and "red," which appear to be nearly the same exact color when you begin to use them on paper. The most deceiving part is that the box itself has a ton of purple on it, indicating that there would be a purple pencil inside, but no. Two shades of brown, two shades of blue, and two shades of green, two shades (that look the same) of red, but no purple. Would rather spend the extra money to get a good quality set of colored pencils that actually include all the colors of the rainbow!
