Crayola manufactures several different types of colored pencils. The most popular one is the standard sharpenable wood-shafted pencil, which also offers the widest range of available colors. A smaller and slightly different range of colors is available in mechanical pencil format as part of their "Twistables" product line.
Both formats have a certain subset of "Erasable" colors. Although the default colored pencils are not completely indelible, their markings have a slightly waxy texture that tends to smear and thin out rather than truly erasing.
Crayola also produces several other specialty colored pencils.

Multicultural Colors, 8 Pack
Regular wooden pencils in colors which represent the colors of people's skin. Colors include: black, red, mahogany, peach, brown, brown, brown, and tan. All colors are available in other packages, none unique.
Crayola also manufactures mechanical pencils with colored leads as part of its "Twistables" line, which also includes crayons and markers with a similar screw-based mechanical feed. Crayola does not currently offer refill cores for any of its Twistables products, so the pencils are intended to be discarded when empty. The external packaging of each set shows color swatches labeled by name, but the color names are not imprinted on the individual pencils themselves. They are available in 12, (vibrant set) 18, and 30 packs, an erasable 12 pack and a Silly Scents 12 pack. The 12 pack was released in 1998, the 18 pack was released in 2008, and the 30 pack was released in 2009.
The 30 pack contains 11 of the colors in the standard 12 pack; sky-blue is not included. It also contains all of colors of the 18 pack (vibrant set) with the exception of the three fluorescent colors (the 18 set has four colors from the 12 pack). The remaining eight colors (there are six colors that are in both sets) are unique to the 30 pack.
Some of the Twistables pencil color names do not appear among the standard colored pencils as shown above. The colors are blue-violet, green-yellow, apricot, asparagus, carnation pink, and wisteria.
All color values are approximate.
The "Vibrant Set" 18-pack that released in 2008 has relatively little duplication of the basic 12-pack colors; The colors from the 12 pack are italicized:
|12 pack standard set||18 pack vibrant set
(four 12-pack colors, 14 new colors)
|30 pack assorted set (eight new colors)|
|Yellow Green||Fluorescent Orange||Asparagus|
|Sky Blue||Fluorescent Yellow||Gray|
|Blue||Golden Yellow||Carnation Pink|
|Light Brown||Lime Green|
Underlined colors are NOT in the 30 pack.
Yellow, pink and orange are fluorescent in the 18 pack but are regular in the 30 pack.
Specialty colored pencils
Various types of colored pencils with special purposes.
Crayola's erasable colors are available in 8-packs, 12-packs, 24-packs, or 36-packs of standard sharpenable pencils. There is also a 12-pack of "Erasable Twistables" pencils, which lists the same twelve colors as the standard "Twistables" pencils. These pencils are formulated to be easily erasable with the eraser provided at the end of each pencil, as they do not contain wax which would normally smear and thin out the markings instead of being fully erased. The 36-pack has the following colors: Mahogany, Maroon, Red, Red Orange, Orange, Yellow Orange, Golden Yellow, Yellow, Lime Green, Yellow Green, Jade Green, Green, Teal, Aqua Green, Turquoise, Sky Blue, Cerulean, Blue, Navy Blue, Light Blue, Violet, Orchid, Magenta, Pink, Salmon, Mauve, Peach, Harvest Gold, Tan, Taupe, Light Brown, Brown, White, Slate, Gray, and Black.

The basic "Silly Scents" 8-pack that released in 1998 has the following colors:

|Fairy Tales Forest||Oozing Ogre||Zombie Laundry||Ghoulish Graham Cracker|
In 2017, Crayola released a 12-pack of Silly Scents Twistables which have scents based on each colors' name. It is a product that is a part of Crayola's Silly Scents line. Below is a chart with each of the pack's colors. Each color value is approximate.
|Cherry #ED171C||Fruit Punch #E73550||Orange #ED6200||Lemon #DDD000|
|Green Apple #119430||Beach #57BCEB||Blueberry #1A63C2||Grape #B71B4C|

"True to Life" pencils are limited to eight colors (or rather, eight color titles such as "Maui Sunset" and "Amazon Rainforest"), in which each pencil has a single tricolor lead. As the color titles are identical to those of the "True to Life" tricolored crayons, their color range is presumably similar or identical.
Similarly, the 8-pack of double-sided "Heads 'n Tails" pencils, in which the two sides of each pencil have two different tints or shades of the same hue, should resemble the color range of the corresponding crayons.
Crayola's watercolor pencils come in a 12-pack and 24-pack. These can be used in the same way as a standard colored pencil without water or painted with similarly to watercolor painting when water is applied. These packs contain the same colors as the standard 12-pack and 24-pack.
Crayola produces woodless colored pencils in a 24-pack. These colored pencils are a pentagonal shape, allowing them to be used at many different angles to draw different widths of lines. They are thicker and made entirely of solid color. This pack contains the same colors as the standard 24-pack.
