Here is my first review of carbon pencils (different than graphite pencils and also different than charcoal pencils!). I demonstrate the different look/qualities of them and link to purchase is below!
NEW INFORMATION:
Since I filmed this vlog, I’ve heard from some of you who also noticed the change in the Mars Lumograph Pencils, so when I couldn’t find more information on their website, I emailed Staedtler and got this response:
“We are sorry that we caused some confusion with the Lumograph series.
At the beginning of 2016 we integrated the Lumograph 100-7B and 100-8B into our Lumograph black series (for artists). So the pencil that was formerly called 100-7B now has the article number 100B-6B and the former 100-8B is now 100B-8B. They are not blue but black lacquered: https://www.staedtler.com/en/products/pencils-accessories/pencils/mars-lumograph-black-100b-premium-quality-artists-pencil/
So you are absolutely correct in noticing that there has been a change. Unfortunately, this information has not reached all our customers. We are very sorry for this.”

Really great to know that there was a recent change, as I had observed, and that the company was so responsive to my inquiry.
