Features and Benefits
This matt emulsion will make your room light and more spacious. Its patented LumiTec formulation works with light-reflective particles to reflect up to twice as much light back into your room, when compared to regular emulsion paints. 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.

Horrendous application, opacity and finish- avoid!
Bidders86 - 8 months ago
The colour is the only good point about this paint but that is where the positives end. Bought two tins for walls that were recently replastered, left to dry and had had a watered down mist coat on them. This paint foamed upon application, as in lots of tiny bubbles on the paint in the roller tray that were transferred onto my walls (used the same rollers for a different paint a few weeks previously with no problems) which I then had to go over with a sponge roller in order to achieve anything like an acceptable finish. This foaming even happened when I tried it on a door we’re going to change, so it can’t have been a moisture issue in the walls. Even then it dried on the walls with a patchy sheen and uneven texture despite using the same rollers and method. The texture is bizarre, rough like sandpaper, but uneven, and the coverage is bad too. I’m on my third coat in one room and still it’s not covering brilliantly and getting uneven reflectivity as I look across the walls. It does seem slightly brighter than other paints I’ve used, but the finish and coverage mean I’m not even going to start on the second tin I bought- it’s going straight back to B&Q and Dulux are going to hear from me about such an awful product. So disappointed for the money paid, am going to have to sand the worst parts and do the rest with a colour matched paint from a different brand. Steer well clear!
Very poor opacity. Bad finish. High cost.

Start with the good points: it has made our Hall landing and stairs brighter than the horrible orange wallpaper before it. However, not sure that is due the "special" light and space paint, which is obviously a marketing gimmick. I'm sure any light paint would have done the job in hindsight.
We have applied the pain over both new and old plaster walls. Both received white, thinned primer coats. It goes on the newly plastered walls OK if I'm being generous. After three full coats it gives an acceptable finish and coverage. On the existing plaster walls the coverage is awful. In some places we are on 4 or 5 coats and still goong and it is still a poor finish.
Just to show its not our plaster that's the problem, we have a green feature wall over old plaster in the same space and that has applied beautifully. That's was b&q's own emulsion.
Would certainly never buy again. If you want to lighten your space buy a brighter light bulb because you will need at least twice as much of this paint as a normal emulsion and it costs more per pot to start with and you end you with a painted finish that always has an appearance of not quite having had enough coats.
Top Quality Paint.

very light colour, easy to put on. Over white one coat was enough.
