True grey pain is so difficult to get right. After reading all reviews I decided to plummet for Hempstead. The first coat was paler than my original wall colour. It completely covered in 2 coats but still a cool grey with a slight look of blue. I’m rating 4 I think my more colour choice than the paint itself

Wouldn't use for living areas.

Quite watery paint. 2 coats minimum but 3 would be better. I used this in a cloakroom and a long narrow hallway. 2 areas of my home I don't usually lay any attention to. Good enough for that but I wouldn't use it in a living room or bedroom. 2 coats was ideal but if I was bothered I would have applied a third. Probably wouldn't buy again.

Awful

If only I could rate it 0. This is by far the worst paint i've ever bought. How can B&Q be so comfortable selling this product at a comparable cost to Dulux for such poor quality. The paint is VERY watery so you need to do three coats as a minimum. This results in you having to buy twice the amount of paint you needed in the first place and therefore ends up costing you more money.

Gorgeous light grey
