As a brand new homeowner, one of my first projects was scraping the popcorn ceilings, leaving nice smooth, bare drywall ceilings throughout the house. I first went the budget way and purchased a cheap, no name brand of flat white paint to go over the drywall primer. After a coat of primer and two coats of this cheap paint, the drywall still showed through including all areas of the taping and mud - TERRIBLE.
Then I bought Kilz ceiling paint. ONE COAT over the primer did the trick!! So happy that I can get away with one coat on the rest of my ceilings! The smell is minimal and the coverage is great! Only issue and why it lost a star is because I can see a few lap marks, but to me it's definitely not a deal-breaker and I know that guests will not be closely analyzing my ceilings like I do.
Definitely worth the money to buy this paint for my bare drywall ceilings. One thing I've learned is NO SKIMPING ON PAINT. Might as well not waste your money buying a cheap paint in the first place - go for the good stuff.

I use this product often, especially over patches and repairs. I find it best for ceilings IMO. and It seems as if it levels out.
I like it better sprayed on as in my photos below. Rolled it needs at least 3-4 coats.

I've been using this for my 2,500 sq. ft. renovation. It's been working quite well for me, and covers minor imperfections well enough that they aren't noticeable. The only problem I've had with it is not the paint's fault; after sanding the drywall, it won't stick unless I've been able to get the dust removed completely, which is pretty hard to do. When it gets a good surface, it clings just as well as you'd want it to.

We had a water stain in our bathroom from a roof leak. After it was repaired, we chose this paint for our ceiling. It did a great job covering the stain with one coat. We did an extra coat but it wasn't really needed. I'm very happy we chose Kilz. See before and after pics.

I have never used this brand before but thought I would try it due to its name and the other products that were effective and good. This ceiling paint is like water, its way to thin.splatters a lot and drips far more than others I have used. Did one bathroom with it and put the top back on the can. Wish I could get my money back. Normally I use PPG or Porter paints and often S&W which are outstanding. Finished the job with a better paint and have taken KIlz ceiling paint off my list of future purchases. So if you buy it......good luck!!

After removing popcorn I had a heck of a time repainting the cieling. This was one of the first paints I tried. The paint would not stick to the flat ceiling. It would roll right back on to the roller. Once I was finally able to get it on the cieling, it seemed dark. I chose to try some other primer/paint options and didn't buy any more of this stuff. When I went to touch it up a few days later on with another "flat white" cieling paint that I decided to go with I realized that this color isn't white at all. Now I have to repaint the entire room because this paint is a much darker grayish color than actual flat white ceiling I was hoping for. And those touch up spots are now big eye sores.

I smoke, but not in my home. When it's winter time I smoke in my garage that is lightly heated for my cats. The smoke damaged the ceiling with horrible brown stains! Kilt did the trick! Thanks! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I used this product on my ceilings throughout my home due to recent water damage (stains). Worked fantastic and my wife loved because it had very little odor so we didn't have to leave overnight because of odor or fumes which was great.As well it covered the stains with no bleed through with one coat wich in turn saved me time and money! Awesome product! Highly recommended. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
