Very thin, poor coverage and a misleading tin

I'd recommend avoiding this paint, I've done a lot of decorating in my time (not by choice) and this has to be the worst paint I've used... it wouldn't be so bad if the price matched the quality, but it doesn't.

It is very thin and watery, it has very poor coverage. Painting white over a different shade of white has taken 4 coats (applied as thick as I can without making a mess!)
The claims of 1 to 2 coats and durability on the tin are rubbish.
In terms of other products at B&Q I would strongly recommend using Dulux or even the Valspar range, it will save you a lot of time and money.

Wish I'd read the reviews!

My walls were very light cream but after 1 coat it's clear it's going to need at least 1 more, if not 2. We will be switching to Dulux for the rest of the decorating.

Great paint and Colour

I don’t know why this paint gets bad reviews! It’s perfect, definitely not a cream or yellow colour, t looks just like snow and practically white. Was great coverage. One 2.5L did one coat of my hallway and stairs. So obviously will need to get another tin to give two coats. After giving it a good stir it was good to go. I love B&Q own brand paint and have never had a problem with it

Yellowest white paint I've ever seen

I bought this as i thought what's whiter than the North Pole?
I think they may have been eating yellow snow after all. This went over a brilliant white under coat but i already want to repaint as it looks like a light smoker lives here

Looks fab
