f expenses were not a concern, any time I wanted to paint a room in our house, there would be no hesitation to use Benjamin Moore Paint. I have a close friend whose husband highly recommended it to me many years ago, and I absolutely love it. I love the smooth way it goes on, and how well it covers. Rarely have I had to put on a second coat when using Benjamin Moore® Paint.
So I was rather excited when I was given the privilege to try out Benjamin Moore’s new paint line called Aura®. Sadly, I was not impressed. It just does not cover the way I’ve known Benjamin Moore® paint to cover. I started out by painting our bathroom door which was a mint green color and painted it to an eggshell white color. It just did not cover well, even after two coats. It just seemed so much thinner.
I did like it that there was no paint smell. My husband came home shortly after I finished painting, and he did not notice any paint odor at all in the house. I also appreciated how quickly it dried. And, when I DO try to paint again, if I use the Aura, and use a darker color over a lighter one, I love that I can check out this Color Gallery right at home to find the color I want to use.
I absolutely have not given up on Benjamin Moore® Paint! I still love the brand . . . and quite possibly I had a bad batch here? I will give it a try again!
