Aura Paint/Benjamin Moore

Has any one tried tried that new Aora paint made by Ben Moore. It's a bit expensive but saved a ton of time.

I did 3 rooms this weekend. Walls were a 2base brown and it covered in one coat with a few touch ups. The higher sheens touch up like flat paint where you can go back and retouch.

I did the trim in the Aora one coat in white and used the Moresco flat white for the ceilings. I saved a ton of time in labor:) .

Yeah, the stuff's Da Shiznit
Completely awesome, extremely low odor, extreme hide, no primer, no burnish, no surfactant leaching, super quick drying, super scrubble, super touch-upable, mongo durable, incredible finishing money maker in a can
So...I guess I think it doesn't suck

I don't use that crappy pad they recommend. Get better coverage with a 50/50 3/8ths nap pad.
Now I did not have good success with (one of my favorites) the 50/50
In fact, I did not even finish the wall with it when I tested it
I felt the Aura cover was better
Though the White Doves work great too
I haven't found what I feel to be the "best" yet
