Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 French Silver PPU18-05 mainly medium lavender grey, Needs at least 2 coats for knockdown textured walls
Packaging: The paint cans were well packaged and no paint leaked from the cans.
Paint Color: French Silver PPU18-05 is a medium lavender grey in most light; I thought it would be more of a medium blue grey based on how the color appeared on my computer, which is partially correct. If it's overcast, it looks medium grey. Likewise, if it's bright and sunny, the color looks more blue-ish medium grey. Despite being a moody color (i.e. the color appears to change in different light), it's a neutral tone that does well with most colors except for cooler medium blues. For example, it matches well with builder grade beige paint (in my case, Sherwin Williams D.R. Horton White), Behr Baritone 680F-7 (deep brownish purple - another moody color), and Behr Parsnip 440A-1 (light minty green).
Paint Application, Cleanup, and Smell: This paint was still too thick to apply with a nap roller or a Wooster brush; once I thinned the paint with water per manufacturer recommendations for paint sprayer application, the paint adhered to the walls smoothly. Since my walls are knockdown textured, I have to have 2 coats of any paint brand and this one was no exception.
Cleanup was easy - just wash painting supplies in soap and water.
The paint smell from the eggshell finish was about the same as Glidden eggshell paint finishes; SH and BM eggshell finishes are a bitter stronger than Behr's.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Excellent coverage, Perfect Color
I received a gallon of Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Eggshell paint in perfect taupe. The paint came nicely and carefully packaged, requiring little mixing as one would initially believe. We painted over standard finish wall paint which usually absorbs the paint requiring a second coat. But with this paint, this wasn't the case. We were able to paint the wall flawlessly with one coat to our surprise. The paint does have some odor but didn't stick around too long. Great consistency, coverage and application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thapickypainter EXCELLENT PAINT AND COVERS VERY WELL
This is the brand I strongly recommend to my customers that hire me. It covers in one coat, if applied right with the exception, dark reds or burgundies do require two coats. But I used Valspar in past and that brand always requires two to three coats for good coverage, it is like, transparent when it goes on and I am not happy when I walk onto a job and see Valspar or any other brand of paint. I know I will be applying two or more coats.
STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BRAND FOR GOOD COVERAGE, GOOD QUALITY AND PROFESSIONAL COVERAGE.
If you don't get good coverage with one coat then you are not applying it properly and are not using the right nap with roller covers. There is a difference in naps on covers and you must know the right nap to use on different surfaces. If in doubt, get online and do your research but this is the only brand I prefer to use and I am a professional interior painter with 25 years experience.

I love Behr paint. It is my first choice go to for my interior paint needs. When you have a medium/large indoor dog, you want a paint that is easily cleaned. I usually buy the eggshell sheen and it still cleans up without too much elbow grease!
We have just purchased our third home and I am deciding on which Behr colors to use!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Like2DIY Not really impressed
I purchased the Behr Premium Plus Ultra to repaint a sunroom from a light/medium blue to an medium off-white. The Home Depot salesperson had stated that of the three Behr paint with primer products, the lowest price one really did not have primer in it. Wanting to remain somewhat economical, I chose this mid-grade product. I expected to need two coats to cover my walls even with the included primer in the paint. I used quality rollers and brushes and applied the paint liberally, however, when I was finished with the second coat, I felt a third coat was needed. I could still see a hint of the original blue color. I expected better for the reputation and review of the Behr paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SunfilledDays Only paint to use- EVER!
Years ago, I tried to use another brand of paint and it literally wiped off the walls and wouldn't seal. I tried Behr paint and now I won't use anything else. The color is true to the paint cards in the store. This paint goes on even and smooth. I decided to do two coats on the house I have now because the old paint was an oil based paint and I chose bright colors so I wanted the walls very saturated, but most situations you could get away with one coat. Clean up is quick and maintenance on these walls is a breeze. A damp cloth and any mark is quickly gone. I tell everyone Behr paint is the best paint. I will ONLY use Behr. I've tried other products from Behr depending on my paint needs and I'm never disappointed. You won't be sorry picking this brand of paint.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andrea145 paint was AWFUL!!!
I have been a BEHR paint fan for 20+ years....I had a huge basement remodel after a flood and had LOTS of paint to buy so of course, went to HD to buy BEHR. I do not know if the formula has changed or WHAT but this is NOT the same BEHR paint that it used to be!!! I ended up having to buy 3-4 times as much to get the same coverage as I did with 1 gallon before!! It is like it has been watered down! VERY VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS PAINT and I bought the expensive primer/paint in one. After already getting halfway into a huge project like this, there is no going back so had no choice but to finish and spend 4 times the amount I had originally budgeted! WILL NEVER BUY BEHR PAINT AGAIN!! WOULD LIKE MY MONEY BACK!!!
