Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Used their emulsion in many occasions with no issues, so I thought I’d give the gloss a try. Stirred the paint for what seemed like ages, very runny and a creamy milky colour, not white as I expected it to be, it was brilliant white after all, Door frames where in need of painting so where an off white colour but as I painted them I couldn’t even make out where I was painting, gloss was very runny and was dripping, thought it might dry white, but the next day there was no colour change to the door frame, my husband didn’t know which bits I’d even painted, it was like the white pigment wasn’t in the tin, awful to use and a waste of money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrendous Finish Having had such good results with the Valspar emulsion I was expecting a great result. Unfortunately, I didn’t read the reviews of this paint first. If I could have given zero stars I would. It is a thin a paint as you will ever find and the finish after two coats is so bad I wish I’d never started. I had spent so much time undercoating as well I am very disappointed indeed. The coverage is so poor you try to compensate with more paint but it just drips and runs. This is a truly dreadful product and should be pulled from the shelves. DO NOT BUY.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful paint, doesn’t cover, waste of money I bought this paint at the weekend from B&Q. Having been impressed with Valspar emulsion I had high hopes for their gloss... how disappointing to find that after spending 5 minutes stirring and mixing the split substances that it simply will not cover and just beads/cisses on a new, well prepared and under coated surface. Having tried water based gloss 5/6 years ago I was hoping that the product had been refined... how writing I am. Valpar’s good name is tainted by this poor product, how I wish I had read the reviews before wasting my money!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like white water I bought 3 tins of valspar The Perfect White wood and metal interior gloss whilst on offer at B&Q. My intention was to gloss all skirting boards, door frames and doors in my house, I had half a tin of crown water based gloss left which I started with. When the crown was empty I opened a tin of valspar it was like white water, I stirred it thoroughly for about 5 minutes but it didn't get much better. It is impossible to get a good coat of paint on as it just runs everywhere, what a complete waste of money. 3 full tins going spare if anyone wants them, it's true what they say - you get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute disaster!! Just bought my first house and with glee set about re painting the old fireplace, prepped to perfection I applied a layer of Valspar eggshell wood paint to then think I was going insane, the paint didn’t sit at all and left running marks the whole way down, the paint practically splitting and making the whole thing an absolute mess, being a novice to DIY I thought this was maybe how it worked so went ahead with the second coat. Now sitting here with my head in my hands knowing I’ll have to strip the fireplace and start again! Thanks for nothing Valspar :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total agreement I have just attempted to use the Perfect White Wood and Metal Interior gloss and am in total agreement with previous reviews. The paint was so thin that I re-stirred it vigorously for a further 5 minutes, after first attempting to use, as I was sure it couldn’t be mixed properly. It does seem to give a gloss coat, but there seems a total lack of pigment so coverage is non-existent. I have used Valspar paint on numerous occasions previously and never had a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from atrocious, dony buy. i bought the undercoat and satin for wood and metal. UNBELIEVABLY THIN. LIKE A CHEAP EMULSION PAINT. zero coverage, unless you have covered everything beneath. i used a 2.5ltr tin on four doors and skirting boards in a small hallway. in fairness, the end result is very titanium white, much whiter than dulux,, but much harder work. Wouldn't recommend for a weekend project, this paint needs time and effort for great results. BE PREPARED. expensive and time consuming. not for the lazy painter. sorry valspar, not recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spilt milk has better coverage! I spent 30 minutes in B&Q looking at various white gloss paints to repaint my bannisters - Valspar perfect white was on offer so I thought - why not? This stuff is utterly useless ... glossy and quick drying get it 1 star, but there doesn't appear to be any white pigment at all!! I wish I had seen these reviews before I bought a 2.5l tin of this dreadful, useless stuff! Can I just take it back and get my money back? >:-(
