What is the top coat on this?

I know that the paint color, type, brand etc is exactly the same but when I put it on it is 3 shades darker. I was told that there was a top coat over it. WHAT is the top coat though?

And how do you think we would know?

Looks like rickroll to me.

The two paints pictured are no where near close. Is the issue someone left some touchup paint marked for that particular room and you wanted to do touch up. What it looks like to me is that someone has come in and painted a whole different color. Many times when you buy a house the owner will do a quick " clean up the look" of the house with a coat of off white paint. Then leave previously used paints in the garage.

What you seem to have now is a whole different color of paint on your walls, not a "topcoat" per se.
