New plaster, one wishy washy coat then one coat magnolia, two coats of putty still needs another one.
So doesn't cover very well

I needed to find some emulsion that would match some curtain fabric I already had - and this was the only one that would do! It was the perfect match and is exactly the same when dry as it appears to be in the plastic container - and the great thing is that you can see the colour through the plastic - not just a painted lid! It went on easily with a brush and needed just two coats to give it depth. Impressed.

After tiling the bathroom using taupe tiles I struggled to find a suitable colour for my wall, and I have to say, it looks so professional especially with the newly installed downlights. It's not a typical looking magnolia and the colour on this image isn't true to the actual shade - the colour is a very subtle grey-ish white and doesn't at all look blue, yellow or brown like the other choices I made.
If you want a fresh clean look to your walls this is the right choice, fairly thick from the tin but two coats just to make sure my finish was top quality was all it took and it dried fairly quick so waiting before each coat was fairly minimal.
I would strongly recommend (replaced Crown emulsion and this was a far better choice)

excellent coverage,quality the reason why we kept colour and as a homebase paint it has a better coverage than the best brand.Would recommend it to friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kent DIY'er Great quality emulsion
The Duracoat paint is really high quality giving good coverage, a great finish and helps disguise minor imperfections. It is certainly as good as the major branded emulsions i've used. It is quite thick straight out of the tin so sometimes needs diluting a small amount to improve application

I was extremly surprised at the quality of my product. The cost was very reasonable the coverage was very good and the finished artical is very pleasing and looks as though it should have cost a lot more than it did.
I have already recommend it to a freind who is very pleased as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Putty (because I use it everywhere) Best versatile colour
I have used this colour in 3 houses now, in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and bedrooms and it is by far my favourite and most used colour. It is a very warm, neutral colour (it is the buff/stone colour with a grey not yellow tinge and can be very masculine or feminine when matched with other colours) and perfectly named, as when any filling has to be done on new plaster, it is hardly visible and touching up is usually enough, without having to paint a whole wall. Used with other colours in the range, you can keep it neutral or use it as a backdrop for a more vibrant wallpaper or colour. The duracoat does exactly what is says on the tin; I have even gently used an abrasive cleaner on it to remove permanent marker. Highly recommended.
PS Looks nothing like the colour I can see on the right here, but the tin front is quite accurate.
