I recently purchased this product as a result of the favorable Consumer Reports magazine write up and a sale offered by Ace on the paint. I was very impressed with this paint and its ease of application.

To test the paints coverage I had samples of Frazee Mirro-glide, Behr Premium Plus Ultra, Velspar Ultra, and C+K mixed to the same color (a medium tan). The C+K had the best coverage of the four. The Frazee branded paint was like water.

I was painting over a pink semi-gloss finish. I lightly sanded the wall and used tinted Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primer sealer to prepare the surface. I believe that you should use a proper tinted primer as it is a cheaper (sale price $11.99/gal) and more effective alternative to a first coat of paint than an all in one paint/primer. I believe that using an all in one for primer purposes is nothing but a marketing ploy.

Application of the C+K paint after priming was a joy. The paint went on smoothly with both roller and brush. I had no dripping or splatter. Coverage was uniform and even. After the first coat the finish was perfect. I did put on a second coat and noted no improvement.

The C+K is a low VOC paint with a tendency to dry quickly. I used Floetrol, a paint conditioner to extend the drying time of the paint.

The finish was what I expected of an eggshell paint as depicted from the C+K gloss chart at Ace. The finish was nice and smooth. Highly recommended paint.

My expectations of paints are based on another brand that often comes in blue & white cans. If my wife had not selected a color from Ace hardware we would not have tried this paint. We repainted the livingroom with the Clark + Kensigton (C+K) interior satin enamel. Maybe 500 sq ft of wall area. It required 3 gallons and a quart to cover. It also took 3 coats to put on. It should have only require two coats to completely cover IMO. If you like the task of painting then this is the paint for you.

A couple caharacteristics I didn't like about the C+K paint include a tendancy for the new coat to disolve the previous coat if not enough time is allowed between coats. As well as the fresh paint pulling off the wall as the masking tape is removed. You either have to remove the tape right after painting (hard to do when you have to do 3 coats), or let it dry completely and hope the tape does not begin to leave residue after a week or two.

    If you wanna save time and money while painting your house I highly recommend using this product. I ve painted my entire house with only 1 coat and it looks amazing. It covers really well compared to other brand name products such as val spar and Behr. Don't even waist your time or money with other brand names.

    Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Eggshell Enamel - Gallon:

    I purchased this paint to paint my living & dinning room. The colors I purchased were a light green and a deeper green called Believe Me & Peaceful Forest in a egg shell finish. The colors turned out way better than I expected! Provided great coverage over light colored walls.The paint went along way and had very low odor. So far after a few months of living with these colors, I can say they have held up very well! I also purchased wood work paint in a white color called Soft Wool which I absolutely adore! It is a nice soft white and not too bright. I also got this in a eggshell finish that has held up well. I plan to use this white in my kitchen eventually. Buy this paint.I highly recomend it!

          Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Eggshell Enamel - Gallon:

          I recently bought the CK paint for the first time. I was very pleased with this eggshell paint. I used four colors including a very light yellow and a dark burgundy. All paint went over the existing beige flat wall paint and required only one coat, with touch-up for the holidays. The consistency of the paint was good for rolling out and for cutting-in the boarders. I will use this paint for all my future painting jobs. The coverage was about what I expected, about 300 sf per gallon. The best part was the low order, my wife and I are living in the house and were concerned that the odor would be a problem, as it is winter and too cold to open up the windows. This turned out to be no problem at all paint has little smell even as being applied and then when dry practically no odor. I highly recommend.

            Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Eggshell Enamel - Gallon:

            I recently bought a house and the closest hardware store to us is Ace. Since living in apartments with white walls most of my life, I wanted to paint every single surface in my house a color other than white. I chose very pigmented colors for the majority of my rooms and have been extremely happy with the choices for Clark and Kensington colors.

            I have painted many rooms in my life as the "resident painter" in the family and have found some downsides to using Clark and Kensington versus other brands.

            It goes on pretty thick (but so do some versions of Valspar) and uneven depending on the sheen. I've used satin, eggshell and flat from Clark and Kensington and have noticed it takes a lot more paint than what is recommended on the back of the can. (Recommended: One quart eggshell = 200-400 sq ft) We barely got through 125 sq ft before the quart was done. Our house was previously painted, so I know the walls werent just soaking up the paint...

            The coverage in general is spotty during the first coat and I noticed that even in the neutral shades of color I have chosen need to have 2-3 coats coverage before the original background wall color is gone.

            Once done painting and is dry, everything looks as it should. No uneven areas but some occasional mysterious drips that show up.

            Overall I would recommend this paint to someone who knows what they are doing and can act accordingly when problems might arise. It is a cheaper alternative that seems to be worth the little trouble you might encounter before fully dry.

            Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Eggshell Enamel - Gallon:

            I was very disappointed with my recent use of Clark Kensington paint and primer in one Eggshell enamel. My livingroom space was 432 sq. ft. I was using a Playas de Tulum brown over white on some walls. I used a Palm Island (green)for accent wall over white. This was 128 sq ft and should have required two quarts. I was told this would be one coat coverage. I had to paint two coats on all walls and one wall for the brown required 3 coats. I ended up using 2 gallons plus one quart of the brown when it should have required one gallon plus one quart.I should have needed only two quarts of the green but used almost a full gallon. The walls do look very nice now that I am done but I really wanted something that would cover adequately in one coat.

              I painted a two story foyer in a medium gray. The foyer was a flat white so I expected better coverage then what I got. The paint went on smooth and leveled out nice but the coverage was not what I thought it would be. I read consumer reports which ranked it #1 in coverage and scrubility. I put two coats on since it's a high traffic area and it looks great. Scrubing out scuffs the paint holds well. I would recommend this paint but plan on two coats and maybe more depending on the color your going over.

              I have been painting houses for a very long time. The owner wanted to save money by buying Clark+Kensington® Paint while it was on sale at Ace. according to the coverage listed on the cans the whole job should have taken 4. 3 gallons my labor should have been 1 to 1 1/2 days tops. The job took a little over 16 1/2 gallons and it still looks unprofessional. Was suppose to be a satin finish and it looks very flat with no sheen at all. The finished product left the exterior siding as ruff as sandpaper.Very poor blending properties. and very very thin paint. Save yourself the headaches I've gone through and just by a different brand

Late drips despite poor coverage. Long lasting smell. I'll never get the hours back I spent painting a room with this stuff, but at least I got my money back. Learn from my mistakes -- do not buy!

                I'm not sure if the product consistency / quality control is just very bad with this product, or if they just don't know anything about sheen, but the 'eggshell' we purchased was almost semi-gloss, as in 2 steps glossier than eggshell. Fortunately we did a test first and didn't use it. Otherwise it seemed to have some potential with slower dry than other low VOC paints, and we might try it on a kitchen sometime. However, not knowing what sheen I may or may not get will likely prevent me from buying it again.

                  We used this product in our downstairs basement, and absolutely loved it. We chose a bright golden yellow color with the eggshell sheen, and can't be happier. It took two coats but this was on brand new primed drywall. We could of gotten away with one coat but we wanted a really professional look. We have two small kids and are going to be using this space heavily and the day after the paint dried our kids scuffed a wall but we wiped it clean easily and no loss of luster in color. Great Bang for your buck! We used Behr paint and primer upstairs throughout the house and we somewhat disappointed in the results hence the change in product. Where Behr lacked in even coverage, The Clark and Kengsinton did not. And where behr were lost color luster after cleaning. The Clark and Kensington has held up to hand prints and hot wheels driving up and down the walls. We also decided on this paint because of consumer reports recommendation. We did a lot of research on different paints and this one is a definite keeper!

                    I bought this paint for my granddaughter's bedroom. When I opened the can, I found that the color that I chose was not even close to being the color I received. The paint has the look and the feel of flat paint, which is not what I ordered (I ordered the eggshell finish). Regardless of which type of brush or roller I used, it did not come close to covering the walls with only one coat. I definitely have to buy more paint to do a second application. Will not recommend this paint to anyone! I feel like I wasted my money...this is an expensive paint so I expected great quality, only to be disappointed.

                    To test the paints coverage I had samples of Frazee Mirro-glide, Behr Premium Plus Ultra, Velspar Ultra, and C+K mixed to the same color (a medium tan). The C+K had the best coverage of the four. The Frazee branded paint was like water.

I believe that you should use a proper tinted primer as it is a cheaper (sale price $11.99/gal) and more effective alternative to a first coat of paint than an all in one paint/primer. I believe that using an all in one for primer purposes is nothing but a marketing ploy.

                        We used this paint for 1 large room and 2 medium sized rooms. Covers well, including a room that was DARK blue. Highly recommed, even over Behr and Sherwin Williams.

                          We covered a wall that was semi gloss peach color and we decided to go with the egg shell tan and we could really tell the difference in the shine..we painted half the wall to see the difference and with the sun light coming through we saw the difference in shine..will always use egg shell from now on..really happy with this paint..little expensive from the paint we are use to using though..

                          I'm going to start with saying this is great covering paint. People that are saying the paint is near semi-gloss must have never used a semi-gloss. Paint has a good sheen without the reflective qualities of a semi-gloss. I have used this paint in a southern exposure room with a lot of windows and no issues or glare. To address the quick drying issue. This is a low VOC paint, which mean fast drying. If you are a slow painter you need a paint extender additive and this is a given with anyone who has a reasonable amount of painting experience. If you are experiencing issues over other types of primer. You need to know not all primer types are not compatible and may lead to issues. So make sure you give ample dry time between coats to insure a good bond. I have used many brands of paint primer in one and this by far is the best for the price. It has out performed many more expensive all in one paints.

                          The best way I can describe using this paint is to say it's like brushing Elmer's glue on the wall. It also drips, like 5 minutes after you brush it on when it should be well on it's way to dry, so you have to run around doing damage control. It also does not cover in one coat despite it's claims. I've tried several other brands of these "primer/paint" combos and I'm not impressed with any of them. Luckily I have textured walls and they're a little more forgiving than smooth. I can't really recommend.

                              Bought a gallon in Meandering Creek for one wall of guest room- took two full coats + touch ups to do one wall (that was already primed) and I'm glad that my goal for the room is a rather rustic/country cottage feel or I'd be extremely disappointed with the finish. I do like the colour but it's quite a bit darker than the sample or the wet shade (the colour it appears when in the can.)

                                  This paint dries very fast, which makes painting anything but smaller areas nearly impossible. I also am not impressed with the coverage over any normal paint, particularly in lighter colors. Another reviewer mentioned that they thought the eggshell was too shiny, and I totally agree. It is pretty much a semi-gloss--not what I wanted. I did like the exterior paint that I got for a previous project, which was not paint + primer.

                                      This product does not cover well. The areas that were cut in around windows, etc. dried before the roller was to be used leaving a darker color where the cutting had been done. THe pigment did not stay mixed for mor that 1/2 hour.

                                        As the other reviewer said, this paint dries too fast and you can easily see the roller marks. The Paint and Primer is totally waste. It did not hide my previous paint properly inspite of putting two coats. The touch-ups are easily visible. The paint wont blend well. If you tried to touch up too much you will see the paint peeling. Very disappointed with the product.

                                            We wanted to paint kitchen cabinets and were told to find an enamel paint with primer in it. Another store wanted over $40 for a gallon and recommended we buy 2 gallons for our little kitchen. I checked out ACE since I like their service better. Picked this out on my own, used the bright white right off the shelf. Project was tough at times but had nothing to do with the paint, just a long tedious process of painting cabinetry door by door coat by coat. Took 3 coats but our cabinets were very dark wood and we were going to bright white. The entire kitchen took only one gallon so we saved money. Super happy with results, paint worked out great. After it cured for a few weeks it it dry to the touch no tackiness and it is holding up awesome. No dings or scrapes. I have had no problems with peeling as previously stated by other reviewers but I prepped my cabinets well to avoid this problem. Will be buying another gallon today to do the cabinets in the bathroom and paint door trim and doors that are all super dark in our house to brighten it up in here.

                                              We bought the first gallon and it went on great, looked wonderful. But after it dried and we put the second coat on, and that dried, we noticed the least pressure and it would peel , or chip very easily. We will not be using this again. This went over a primed room, so there is no reason for the chipping or peeling.
                                              its too bad, cause it covered so well and painted so easily. i guess if you are using it somewhere that it would be touched much it would be ok.

                                              I used the free quart of flat. I thought pretty good since it is a washable flat. However, I generally use eggshell and bought 2 gal. I agree that it dries too fast and is difficult to roll back over. I also had problems with roller marks. But, more of a semi-gloss than eggshell. So, if you don't want shine, go with the flat. Won't buy again!

                                                  First coat went on dissapointingly. By the time I finished cutting in a section, it started to gloop and wouldn't blend together well. This is within FIVE MINUTES of starting to cut in the paint. It was impossible to touch up a spot that wasn't fully dry, it peeled right up, and that was just after about TWENTY minutes. Its nice that it dries fast, but if I can't even finish a section without messing up the last one, whats the point?

                                                    Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Eggshell Enamel - Gallon:

                                                    I recently repainted both my boys rooms. I decided to buy the Clark Kensington brand after I visited my Ace Hardware store. The clerk was extremely helpful and was able to match the color I had chosen from another brand. I took advantage of the free paint quart to try out the color in the room. I then went back and purchased 2 gallons of the eggshell enamel to finish the job. This paint was great to work with, the consistency was just right not too thick and not runny. It covered the old paint well which was a semi gloss. It worked well on both the roller and the brush. There were only a few spots I had to go over for coverage but this paint covered even the dark blue contrast wall. I was very happy with the result. I have painted my entire house room by room and not all paints are equal. This paint is a great value for the price and you will love the quality!
