Benjamin Moore Aura - A love hate relationship

Well all painting for me is a love / hate relationship. Love the results, not so much the process. But this Aura stuff is a really really a love / hate thing with me, has anybody else used this stuff? I am a Sherwin Williams fan myself, but my wife picked this color and paint a couple of years ago and we did a couple of rooms with it and it covered great and has worn fantastically. Just re-did a small bath and the wife says same color, well that means more Aura. What I had forgotten about this paint is it RUNS I mean you really have to keep an eye on it. Paint a section and then go back and check for runs, paint another section and then check BOTH for runs. Like I said it covers great, one room we painted a couple years ago was red and it covered like a champ. It wears great, after 2 years it looks like new. But man I was going nuts doing chasing runs in this tiny little bathroom. Won't steer you away from this stuff as the end result is good, but be fore warned you gotta watch it and follow back looking for the runs.

We've had excellent luck with Valspar Duramax paint, but you're right, you probably should've stayed with SW.

Sherwin Williams can match any color.

Had concerns the sheen would be a bit different.

That's part of the process. If you have the number of the Bennie Moore paint, it's easy for them to match it. Also, it'll be in another room and not obvious if there is a small difference.

Aura is some good paint, but real qwerky to work with. Been painting for 34 years now and usually use SW products but when you get into the real deep colors especially reds Benny Moore really shines versus SW.
