This review is written by Lisa Clough aka Lachri (website | youtube). I used Caran d'Ache's Luminance for the first time last summer. I was honestly hoping not to like them because they are very expensive pencils. After one use, I was hooked! There are SO many things that make these pencils worth every penny.
For this reason, if you decide on Pablo, I would get the white luminance at least. They feel softer to me and the point wears down much faster than Pablo.
