The consistency is like a velvety lipstick - you control whether they saturate the substrate, leaving a slick, smooth, powerfully colorful surface...or more of a light hint that produces a washed out/faded look...or anything in between! It doesn't take much to create a piece that really rocks - especially when water is added. Using the included paintbrush with some water will allow you to move these yummy creams around your project with incredible ease. Adding a little water will just turn these into succulent watercolors - adding more water will allow you to achieve the
Since it's impossible for me to leave a review that short (seriously - I might even call myself grandiloquent...no, I wouldn't - I'd call myself a big mouth lol), I have to tell you why I find them to be totally superb. Let's talk about the color - delicious bright shades of tropical colors. These are the colors I would surround myself with in my world. I love how vivid and luscious they are.

A couple of the colors don't go on looking as bold as I expected, but overall I'm happy with the set. The lime color and the light blue (next to the lime in the product image) works very well.
I love the fact that I can blend them with a brush and water, but also a baby wipe works really well and goes much faster. I've never been a fan of watercolors, but these are AMAZING.

The colors are off and not as highly pigmented!
I wish I knew this before I had given it a great rating through Amazon. I would recommend buying the real ones even though they are a bit more expensive.
Unless you are not trying to match the real set of gelatos you have already-and you don't care about the color not being vibrant enough or if they are for kids starting out, then maybe start with these.
