This paint is just a mistake, 3 coats on a good day is not what I call good paint. If I had to use SW, Super paint would be the choice,Brilliance just sucks(IMO)

Yeah. The challenge is telling them apart.

True, true. I know which of my locals are good (Home Depot plumbing guy is really good.) For an unknown, I use a couple testing questions that I know the answer to down pat. For example, ask the electrical guy if a ground is required on the GFCI outlet. Or ask the tile guy if modified thinset should go on top of Ditra. Or ask the tool guy if the impact driver can be used to drill.

If he can't get them, I say "thanks" and don't even go to my real issue.

Some ceiling paints are actually not dead-flat, which is not good, when there is incoming light from high windows, cathedral ceilings, etc.

JeffNC, Brilliance was supposed to be the reformulated Classic 99 Ceiling paint. I loved the Classic 99. For me, if I'm covering flat white with flat white I expect one coat to do the job, at the most 2 coats.......Brilliance just doesn't get it done for me. I get lap marks, poor coverage, etc., you get the picture. ChrisN got me hooked on the PPG Ultra. I was skeptical at first but after doing a couple ceilings with it, I was more than pleasantly surprised. Covered in one coat. Clean, white, no angular sheen. I was very happy. I'm not saying it works for every painter out there, but, it has worked for me.

Wow. Put that on my "avoid" list. Ceilings are near the top of the list of places I don't want to have to paint twice.

I've also noticed that "ceiling paints" are not as white as regular flat white, they have a little colorant to make them hide a little better that flat whites.

Good information to know regarding ceiling paint!

I haven't tried the SW Brilliance, but had similar issues with BM Muresco @$32 gal.

I am repainting all the ceilings in my home, and ended up using Zinsser Ceiling Paint ($20 per gal.) from Menards. It also has the "pink" that turns to white, so visually that really helps!
