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.

  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels

My eyes hurt - 2 months ago

Appalling attempt at a paint. Like others here I find myself wishing I had checked the reviews BEFORE I attempted to apply this liquid doom to my hall. Coverage is worse than poor, I got about 3m painted before I realised just how poor this paint was. Not even going to try and continue. The wall I have covered it a sorry sight. Patchy, streaky and full of roller and brush marks. It's hard to tell if you are applying this to the wall or wiping it off with your brush, both seem to happen at once. It is truly the Schrodinger of paints. Avoid like the plague!

Shame B&Q can't refund me for the time wasted. They will be refunding the part used paint though. This paint is not fit for purpose.

I've given this paint one star since there is not an option for a minus 10.

Nice job

Took 2 coats to cover the white i already had on walls , coverd nicely although i mixed with b n q paint glitter and you cant see any at all on walls , im thinking this colour is too dark to work with or too thick of a paint , gutted about that but still is a lovely colour.

Great colour, apalling coverage and adhesion

Covers barely half what it says, like painting with extra thick double cream and slides so ends up unbelievably patchy. Used same roller and undercoat as on a wall I did the day before with another Colours paint (which was perfect and covered smoothly and perfect finish after 2 coats). Due to the product inconsistancy over the range I wouldn't risk using Colours again which is a pity.

Great paint

The paint gives a great coverage. I put this over white paint and after 2 coats gave a lovely finish. Drugs fast too.

Terrible paint

Brassed off once more - 1 year ago

This could possibly be the worst emulsion paint on the planet. It does not cover well at all. It cracks like glazing on porcelain when dry. I have given a bedroom wall three coats and it still hasn’t fully covered. It’s also patchy.
I have changed my mind. It definitely is the worst emulsion on the planet!!!
