Features and Benefits

At B&Q we want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you.

  • Great coverage in just one coat, saving you time and money
  • We recommend using a one coat roller for optimal application
  • For best results follow the instructions on the tin carefully, a second coat may be required if overpainting a darker colour with a lighter top coat
  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels.
  • Great coverage in just one coat, saving you time and money

Advertised as one coat and it took three. I’d recommend staying away from this paint and going with another brand. I’m surprised they can even advertise it as one coat. A big diy letdown.

Really don't bother!

I bought a large quantity of this paint for our new house and I totally regret it! I never expect 'one coat paint' to be exactly that, but I've had to do an average of 4 coats in each room (this is 'Colours Premium' by the way).
On the hall, stairs and landing I've used 'Colours Durable' in Custard Cream - Matt. A really nice colour but I so wish I'd bought Dulux or Crown. It doesn't cover, the 'finish' is completely different using a brush to cut-in to the roller. Some of it has bubbled and pealed, some of it has crazed and these are all properly prepared walls with no issues. The final tub of matt paint, despite being labeled as such, was actually silk!
I give up and I will never ever buy B&Q paint again. An expensive mistake to make both in terms of money and time!

Awful paint

Wish I'd checked the reviews first. As others have said we painted a magnolia wall with the grey & it took four coats & the magnolia still bleeds through. I've painted no end of rooms & never had this issue with other paint. Also cutting in with a brush compared to rolling leaves two different colours of grey? Had 16 hours of drying time & some parts of the wall it's as if the paint reacts to the previous coat as it bubbled up straight away. Now left with a sanding down & repaint job. Thanks B&Q for wasting hours of my life

Covered in 2 coats

Was the colour we has looking for and for the price it covered well and was very nice to apply to the walls

Too much like glue to paint with

This is neither one coat, nor nice to paint with.
I started painting a small spare bedroom and this paint made life very difficult. In order to get any coverage on already white emulsioned wall I needed to re-load my roller after virtually half a 'roll' on the wall, and even then the coverage was sparse. It dried patchy, it definitely needed more than one coat. It was like painting with glue. However, the 'marshmallow' colour in the same range is much easier to apply. So whatever they've done with this Shadow pigment needs sorting out. I wouldn't buy range again based on just the Shadow colour.

(NB I bought both shadow and marshmallow in same purchase - had i just bought shadow on it's own i wouldn't have then gone and bought the marshmallow colour as that was for a larger bedroom and the thought of using that consistency on such a large area would have killed me off !).
