Metallic Xtreme Coloring

I found a new-to-me art material recently, the Crayola Metallic Extreme Coloring Kit:  

Looks fun, doesn't it?  Here's what is inside:

I brought it with me to a friend's house and spent 15 minutes doodling while we chatted.  

Right away, I noticed how bright and vivid the colors were.  It was a totally different experience than normal coloring, which was fun.  There was a slight delay between drawing a line and the color showing up, which took a few minutes to get used to, but wasn't a bit deal. 

The markers didn't respond well if you tried to go over the same area more than once, but other than that, they performed very well.

Overall, I really liked the Metallic Xtreme Coloring kit.  Have any of you tried it?
