Just read a review that ART KURE water colour brushes are fugitive and fade fast and badly. Any one have experience with this product?

ART KURE WATER COLOUR BRUSHES refilliable cartridges 24 colours
COMMENT: makes water colour too easy…

------------------------------

CARAN D’ACHES
Water colour iridescent pencils  DICK BLICK VIDEO or
These pencils combine the smoothness of a permanent lead with excellent lightfastness. Every shade has been formulated using finely ground pigments chosen for their purity, intensity, and resistance to UV rays.
Strong coverage and mixing capacity allow for intense applications, blending, and burnishing, while extreme softness enables subtle blending and gradations. Cases are made of environmentally friendly California cedar.
The packaging for every Luminance Colored Pencil set features an anthracite gray box with bold, colorful graphics that faithfully reflect the characteristics, materials, and know-how of the Geneva workshops. Black foam trays perfectly protect every Luminance pencil.
Luminance Colored Pencils, Set of 80, Wood Box — Treat your favorite artist to the 80-piece Caran d'Ache Luminance wood box set, which includes every color in the Luminance range, plus two Grafwood pencils and two blenders for blending, dry-mixing, and intensifying colors.

Water colour crayons    DICK BLICK VIDEO or
The quality of Neocolor II Aquarelle Artists’ Crayons is universally acknowledged. Their excellent lightfastness, high pigment concentration, and adaptability to a variety of techniques have put them in a class of their own.
Neocolor II Crayons are softer than colored pencils, denser than children’s wax crayons, and extremely responsive to a wet brush. Wet and dry techniques can be combined in the same drawing. Because of their strong pigmentation, light colors cover dark colors and vice-versa.
Neocolors are soft enough to smudge with your fingertips, yet much firmer than oil pastels. Scrape off one or more layers of color to create an engraved sgraffito effect. They can also be combined with Caran d’Ache Pablo Colored Pencils. Best of all, they’re watersoluble.
Individual Neocolor II Crayons measure 105 mm long × 10 mm diameter (4-1/8" × 5/16").

INKTENSE WATER COLOUR PENCILS
Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils, but with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen-and-ink. These pencils are available in strong, vibrant colors which work beautifully on their own or can be mixed together to create rich, subtle tones. The pure, clean colors are perfect for bold expressive drawings, including fashion illustration, landscapes, greeting cards, and more.
Inktense pencils can be used dry for rich, intense color or washed out with a little water to create a vivid translucent effect. Once dry, the color is permanent and can be worked over with other media. Pencils are pre-sharpened.
