I bought these when they first appeared a few years ago. They definitely do fade over time (quite a short time too) BUT other than that, they are typically Lakeland - very, very worth the money paid. I'm an avid Lakeland fan (who isn't?!) but only wish they manufactured white goods too - I'd buy everything there then! :)

Lost it's colour!”
I bought these cups thinking that they were lovely for the children, however after only a few months the colour has disappeared. They have been used daily and handwashed only. They were nice while they lasted, however I wouldn't buy any further items in this range unless Lakeland could find a way of encapsulating the colour so that it doesn't wash away.

Still pretty but not nearly as bright as when new”
I bought four of these when they caught my eye in the Westfield branch around Christmas. One was for me and one for my Mum, with the other two set aside as a birthday present for a friend who I knew would love them as much as Mum and I do. It was only when I recently came to wrap my friend's ones that I realised how much of the colour has worn off the other two. There is still some colour there and they do still reflect quite prettily, but they are not nearly as bright as they were. Both have only been handwashed.

Very pretty but disappointed that colour is wearing off.”
by Mr Cutts
My wife and I bought six of these tumblers in the Exeter store. Initially we were very happy with them, however after approx a month and a half, we're noticing the colour wearing off in patches. Obviously it is a painted finish rather than the colour being in the plastic as I had assumed.

I purchased two from the shop itself and sadly the next day already the colours came off which was a massive disappointment i brought these for my mother and now the state of it... now i wish i looked at reviews for it rather selecting it from your shop! it would have been better if the colour was integrated in the plastic itself other than that it would have got the 5 star it deserve but it didn't

I wish i had read the reviews before buying instore. The tumblers looked lovely, the children loved drinking "rainbows" but the colour started to rub off after a week. I phoned customer services and was given a refund there and then. Great customer service, but i would have preferred the glasses to be better made.

I bought a set of 10 tumblers,10 bowls and 1 Pitcher 2 or 3 years back... just fell in love with the Rainbow at the bottom!! Unfortunately, while all the bowls and 4 of the tumblers still retain the Rainbow, the pitcher and 6 of the tumblers have lost the majority of their colouring which has been a great disappointment to me. This is after just being used maybe 2 or 3 times per summer, always handwashed in lukewarm water and being stored in a dark cupboard. So I'm glad the bowls are still OK, but sad about not being able to present a proper 'Rainbow Set' anymore!

I bought four of theses tumblers when they first appeared in the catalogue. They have been in constant use since and are still as colourful as ever!! Even after an adventure in my recently purchased dishwasher. I love them.

Non Breakable but colours fade away”
I bought 3 of these and they were beautiful to start off with but colours are only on the bottom, so eventually wear away, leaving them looking a little bit tatty.

colour wears off”
by Mrs Payne
This glass is lovely to start with and it certainly hasn't broken but after a while the colour (which is on the bottom of the glass rather than integrally in the material) wears off. We have only ever handwashed it. It is a bit disappointing that the colour isn't permanent but for the price it lasts a reasonable length of time.
