Hi Debe,

Thank you for your review. As stated underneath the product image, "Colors may vary by screen type." Please keep in mind that screen settings can have a major impact on color appearance. That is why we strongly advise trying out a small 8 oz. paint sample before starting a new paint project. I suggest going that route for your next project.

Kind regards,

Doris Behr

    Beautiful color, durable, easy to wipe clean and clean up brush afterwards. Very reasonably priced, but I recommend primer also, if you are covering dark colors (though this paint is pre-mixed with primer); otherwise, you will need at least 3 or four coats of eggshell paint, not to mention the extra time it takes to paint.

    PRIME AND PAINT ALL IN ONE
    This paint is our families favorite. No one likes to prime and then paint and then another coat. Coverage was great with sprayer, paint brush and roller. Has held up many years on our New England house with it's harsh winters.

          The color was unexpectedly bright - like a green screen.
          I got this paint thinking it was closer to a sage shade from what I saw online. I do understand the issues of picking colors online, but was surprised at how bright this ended up being and thought other people should know. It was a waste of money and time for me and I am re-painting another color ASAP. Rating is for the difference in color. It is low odor and goes on the walls well.

          Hi Hilary - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that this color turned out brighter than expected. Colors online may vary from the color you ultimately paint on your project, so it's best to check out the paper swatch or purchase an 8 oz. sample for the most accurate representation of the color. I also recommend checking to see if the color was mixed correctly by comparing the paper swatch for New Bamboo PPU10-04 to the dried paint dab on the lid of your paint can. If they match, the color is correct, and we recommend recoating with a new color. If they don't match up, the color may have been mixed incorrectly, and we recommend recoating with the right color. We'd be happy to assist you with this further. Please feel free to reach out to us directly at your convenience. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Behr

            It was hard to cover the dark paint with this light cream color, but having primer in the paint and a coat of primer also helped with coverage. One coat of primer and two coats of the cream, was worth it. I knew I would be needing a lot of paint for two rooms, so I put primer on first. The eggshell covers well and helps hide blemishes in the wall.

            RUNS DRIPS ERRORS!
            This is the worst paint I've used in 30 years. The "new formula" scuff defense is the worst. It runs and it doesn't cover!!

            Hello Frustrated, we appreciate your feedback. Sorry to hear you didn't get the coverage you were expecting from our paint and that it dripped; that's not the experience we want our customers to have with our products. Our Premium Plus Paint offers great coverage. However, it's not guaranteed to cover in a specific amount of coats. Multiple coats may be needed to achieve your desired coverage. To ensure proper consistency, we recommend stirring your paint for 3-5 minutes before using it. Customer satisfaction is important to us. Please feel free to contact our Customer Care team directly for additional assistance or if you have any questions. Have a great rest of your day. –Joanna Behr

              One coat my foot.
              Marquee One Coat, well it depends on what you are painting! Going over redwood TNG, by my experience at least two coats but probably three to get the actual pure white color. I’ve painted four coats! The first coat had one day dry time.

                I’ve used behr paint with primer, (eggshell) for years and I am pleased with the results. The eggshell paint doesn’t seem to show flaws in the wall as easily as satin or semi-gloss. I covered a dark blue with a pale yellow color which was more difficult to cover. With the eggshell paint, I’ve found that I can wash the walls, if needed, with Mr Clean and water so that the walls don’t need repainted for years. The cleanup after painting is also fairly easy. I did have some runs in the paint, but I think I should have used a different roller.

                Beautiful! Painted my work office this color! I read about colors that increase productivity and found that a Blue-Gray color is not too busy, does not relax you, but helps to keep you focused and productive. Couldn’t love it more!

                Not the same color
                The coverage is decent on this, but the "tinsmith" color is not close to a grey-white like it looks. It looks baby blue on my walls! (See pic - hall and rooms are "tinsmith" but look very very blue) Super disappointed.

                Hi burlesonbrittney, thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear that the color did not turn out as expected. Typically, the lighting and surroundings in the room influence the way the color will turn out. It is a great idea to sample colors first.

                  Requires multiple coats it drys to white spots and different shade no matter how much you mix it.

                    misleading color
                    I purchased this color based on photos online but when I get this, it looks more like white, yellowish. Then I painted one spot of the wall, it came out with total GREEN . I don't see any close color (light brown/beige like) as shown online.

                    Hi Ari - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that this color didn't turn out as expected! The color Sweet Jasmine M330-3 is an earthy green shade with a yellow undertone. You may want to check out colors like Canvas Luggage N300-2 or Casual Khaki N300-3 instead which are light brown/beiges shades. For further assistance with this, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help. - Sara Behr

                        Never Again!
                        I've used Behr paint for decades and always been happy but this one was so thick it was like painting with Elmer's glue. I was going over walls that had a light/shallow, 3 week old layer of professional "orange peel" coating after some drywall repairs and it was so thick it wouldn't fill the valleys. It also dried so slowly that if I tried to go back to touch-up a small area that hadn't covered well, the new paint would drag through the first layer, using brush or roller. I normally have beautiful results but think I'm going to have to choose another paint to go over this again. Oh and the bathroom is less than 150 sq ft and I have a half inch left in the bottom of the can, when it says a gallon should cover 400 sq ft. As I said, never again and next time I'll use a separate quality primer and then color coat it.

                        Hello LindaA, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear your paint was thicker than anticipated and didn't cover your surface as expected. Each gallon of our Premium Plus Paint covers about 250-400 Sq. Ft. Keep in mind that more porous or textured surfaces will soak in more paint. To ensure proper paint consistency, we recommend stirring your paint for 3-5 minutes before using it. To ensure proper coverage on a medium to rougher textured surface, such as orange peel walls, we'd recommend using a 3/8" or 3/4" nap roller. Customer satisfaction is important to us. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly with any questions you may have or for assistance. Have a great day. -Joanna Behr

                          Great Gray Color
                          We painted our whole main level and upstairs hall in the satin. We liked it so much we painted our basement Winds Breath. It has a more lavender undertone that I really like.

                            I'm astonished at the number of positive reviews on this paint. It's some of the worst I've EVER used. Goes on like GLUE. You can thin it I guess, but really great paint doesn't need thinning. Coverage is bad, too. Pics are after 2 coats over cream doors. Will now need 3. Spend the extra and buy Benjamin Moore. Sure wish I had.

                            Hi MaryKate,

                            Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Plus Interior Paint & Primer-in-One. I'm very sorry to hear about the coverage and consistency issues experienced, as it certainly isn't what we want our customers to go through. I understand this must've been disappointing and encourage you to contact Behr's Customer Care Department for further assistance with this matter. We'd love to find a way to help.
