Like water
I bought 3 gallons of flat white ceiling paint last night to paint out a rental unit. It was like painting with water, it didn't cover at all, worst paint I ever used. I ended up taking back 2 gallons tonight and buying a different brand.

Hi there, we're sorry to hear the coverage was too thin for your project. Stirring the paint prior to application can help with the thickness. For any other questions and to assist you further, please call us at 1-800-GLIDDEN between 8 am - 5 pm ET.
    Doesn't cover anything
    I bought this paint and after two coats it still looks like watered down see through paint. Horrible. Wasted my money

        Poor wall adhesion
        Takes 3 coats to cover a wall of the same color. Drying time is very long. Second and third coats pull previous coats off the wall even after more than 24 hours drying time. I will never buy this paint again.

          Great coverage and color
          When I told people I was painting my room red, they were skeptical. No one really wanted to tell me what they thought. I bought the Red Delicious paint color. It took two coats to completely cover the walls which I expected. But I did not expect the transformation the second coat made. I am not finished with the project yet, as I have to do flooring, but I am very happy with the color.

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The paint rolled on smoothly, evenly, and dried fairly quickly. I will use it again.
