I have painted many, many rooms in my time. I have never had the problems with paints that I encountered when using one of Ralph Lauren's red tone paints. I was not using a faux finish paint, just a simple wall paint. It took four coats and the walls were uneven and streaky. Don't you find this just a little bit suspect? The paint I used was a flat paint, used in a family room. I finally gave up and bought a high quality paint.
