"I read the reviews for this 'budget' paint and they said the paint was a good quality paint for the low price. I was a bit dubious but pleasantly surprised to find the paint actually is very good and a bargain price - especially as the paint was a bank holiday offer for 2 tubs. I would recommend the paint - good coverage and looks good when dry."
"When I applied the paint I was a bit sceptical as it appeared to be streaky and two tone colour, however after the paint dried fully it looked amazing. Could not believe the finish and only needed the one coat."
"This Basics matt emulsion magnolia paint was excellent! 10 litres for less than £10 is a great price and it covered brilliantly, even over a textured wall paper. Good quality, great price and awesome result. I would definitely buy this brand again. Thanks Screwfix."
"Bought this paint to use in a buy to let property. Expected it to be hard work but I was pleasantly surprised. Some walls had been re-plastered and some filled prior to this and painted with diluted white emulsion and this paint covered in a single coat. I was amazed as the mixed surfaces usually take two coats. Probably does not go as far as a tin of Dulux but at £7.50 on a special offer I was highly impressed. Also used the white which was just as good. The consistency of the paint is a little bit different from the big brands which is perhaps where the comments on surface come from. With the rollers we used I have no problem with the finished surface we achieved although it may be slightly more textured than Dulux. I am sure if you added a little water to thin it slightly it would leave a perfect surface."
"I bought this when I coudnt get the usual Leyland Magnolia. Not much difference really, consistency coverage and finish all similar. Both dry considerably lighter than when wet, but the 'basics' is definitely a richer shade. Having read some of the bad reviews, I wonder if there has been a bad batch?"
