I paint things – everything, more than likely than the average person.  So when I was given the chance to test drive the Benjamin Moore Aura paint, I was all too excited. I didn’t have time to paint an entire room; however, I did paint a shelf that I had been wanting to re-purpose for my son’s room over his sink.  I was very pleased to note that the coverage of the paint was great.  I used a paintbrush and a foam brush for applying the paint and was very pleased with how it covered the shelf.

Although I know it’s not good for me, I love the smell of fresh paint and the Aura paint doesn’t have this smell simply because it’s not the average paint.  It’s an environmentally friendly paint that meets and exceeds industry standards for being an eco-friendly product and comes with a promise.  It’s It comes with a ‘Green Promise‘.

The Green Promise® designation is Benjamin Moore’s assurance that its environmentally friendly coatings meet and exceed the strictest industry standards, while also delivering the premium levels of performance you expect from Benjamin Moore.

The color palette to chose from is not small for the Aura paint – it’s very large.  I’m sure there would be a color that you’d find for the project you’re looking to conquer.  It’s stated that no matter what color you’re wanting that you’ll never need more than two coats as it comes with an exclusive color lock technology.

Take a look at the features the Matte paint has to offer (also available in Eggshell,Satin and Semi-Gloss finishes):

Aura Waterborne Interior Paint – Matte Finish

  • Never more than 2 coats in any color
  • Mildew resistant
  • Color Lock technology for exceptional color
  • No color rub-off
  • Stains wash off easily
  • Easy application
  • Paint and primer together
  • Seamless touch-ups
  • Excellent in high-traffic areas
  • Long-lasting, fresh look
  • Easy cleanup

I know that I would much rather buy a paint that is going to provide me great coverage rather than an average color – simply because average could end up costing me a lot more money in the long run.  Let’s not forget that the primer is including in this paint – which is also a money saver and a time saver.  I would highly suggest you take home a sample of the Benjamin Moore Aura paint to see if this paint may be just the paint you’ve been searching for.

Head on over to the Benjamin Moore website and see all their products, inspirations and read about their ‘How to’s.’

  1. How timely – I am in the market for paint for my living room and had justed started to look into what “green” options are out there after reading so much about how regular paint is so toxic. I’ll have to go to my local BM store and check out the colors in the Aura line. Thanks!

  2. MD- I will warn you – this paint is NOT cheap. Not only that, but I learned that I did NOT like the paint for needing to paint a wall in my living room….which I did just a week or so ago (4/2013). I ended up so frustrated that I went to Home Depot and got a Behr paint. You have to work with the Aura paint carefully. It dries super fast – so if you think you’re going to be interrupted – you’ll be wasting your time because the paint job will come out looking like crap. Of course – maybe the problem lies with me – but I am not so sure of that being the case after hearing what a professional painter had for an experience.
