I used the Antique White nonsanded caulk/grout combo tube and it seemed to go on ok, although looked a bit different color than the label showed; even more yellow than I expected. However I ran out and had to get another tube, exact same kind and color but when applying it looked darker and less yellow. I thought maybe it dried a different color so finished it out but nope! After a few days color was unchanged, original antique white was yellow tinted and the next tube was gray, colors weren't even close even though it was from the same store, same color, same type same everything (Picture shows where they meet in the corner of the tub). Scraped all of it out and bought new stuff to do it over. Wrote to the company to see if they had a batch issue or something and never heard back, learned my lesson I will stick with the bathroom caulk I used to use, not this blend and definitely not this company.

The caulk was easy to use and dried the proper color. It looks great with the matching grout and white subway tile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jessica No fuss. No miss. Just caulk!
When you go to an expensive tile store, they "throw" everything at you, apparently including inferior caulk, scolded my bathroom remodeler. He said, "buy Home Depot caulk. It's much cheaper and dries completely and quickly." True. The high priced caulk was still wet after one week and began to separate from the wall. "See," said my friend who marched me to Home Depot where we bought the " good stuff." Don't be fooled. Expensive tile does not equal quality caulk!

The grout caulk matches perfectly with the non sanded grout, very easy to apply, looks great, easy clean-up, and couldn't be more pleased.

Antique white color matches with the grout. The sheen is different so they look a little different depending on the light.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joolz Not what I wanted.
Store did not have Alabaster, so I chose a close match. Not close enough! I ended up buying Alabaster and re-doing. The caulk was fine...my bad choice of color. Otherwise, it was easy to put on and clean up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by EngineerDad It shrinks
Great color match for the Linen Fusion Pro grout, but it shrinks too much. It does not wipe off like latex caulk for paint, so it is best to run painters tape on both sides of the joint for neat and clean lines like you would for silicone caulk. Leave the joint as full as possible.
Attached are two after pictures showing how much the caulk shrunk. The grout joint is 1/8" wide. Where there are bumps in the picture, I had thinset or grout partially filling the joint. I contacted Custom Building Products and the rep had me send pictures. He basically said it was my fault for not using backer rod and acknowledged that the product shrinks. Nobody sells backer rod that small. There are lots of air pockets in the caulk, so most of the time, you can't run a smooth continuous bead and will need to mold the joint with a finger. Get extra. I'm up to 7 tubes of this stuff for two bathrooms.
If I do another bathroom tile job, I will grout the wall to wall and floor transitions then run a small screw driver down the joint so I have a narrow and shallow gap to caulk. For my most recent joints, I pre-caulked with regular painter's caulk to make sure there are no deep spots or voids while being sure to leave enough of the edge of the tile clear so the caulk sticks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Irene too thin
Product was very thin. Don't bother wetting your finger to run bead. If you do Caulk just spreads out - no substance. Use dry cloth to wipe up any smears, otherwise caulk just spreads. If white will do the job buy another product. Also found the color, I used alabaster, to be much lighter than color chart. For desired color use shade on tube.
