AURA Interior Paint


Benjamin Moore AURA Interior

Grade: Ultra-premium paint with superior color vitality and a scrubbable finish

Finishes: Matte, Eggshell, Satin, Semi-Gloss

Formula Type: Proprietary 100% acrylic with Color Lock® Technology

Best Choice For: Multipurpose interior use

AURA is Benjamin Moore’s top-of-the-line, ultra-premium paint. You’ll notice that AURA is a very thick paint product, resulting in durable coverage in fewer coats than competitors — perfect for dramatic color changes. The acrylic resin formula dries fast, with superior leveling and an ultra-smooth finish. The scuff-resistant, scrubbable finish will hold up beautifully in high-traffic areas.

AURA is also known for its exceptionally rich colors. AURA paint colors contain more pigments than any other paint, with Color Lock® Technology for colors that resist heavy wear and tear. AURA is available in Benjamin Moore’s 3,500+ colors, plus AURA Color Stories®, an exclusive collection of 240 hues.

Regal Select Interior Paint


Benjamin Moore Regal Select

Grade: Premium paint with excellent coverage and a washable, mildew-resistant finish

Finishes: Flat, Matte, Eggshell, Pearl, Semi-Gloss

Formula Type: Proprietary 100% acrylic with Gennex® Color Technology

Best Choice For: Multipurpose interior use

Benjamin Moore Regal Select is a premium acrylic paint that covers surfaces in fewer coats than competitors. This versatile product is our best-selling paint, speeding up painting projects with fast dry time and producing a durable surface at a competitive price point. Regal Select provides a washable finish (even in a matte sheen!) that will last for years — with built-in stain resistance and excellent color vitality.

Regal’s coverage performs best when painting over colors with a similar value, such as light gray over beige. While its use is certainly not limited to such cases, projects with drastic colors will get better color-hide from AURA. For more information about the differences between these popular Benjamin Moore paints, check out our review of Regal Select vs. AURA. Regal Select is available in five sheens and Benjamin Moore’s 3,500+ colors.

AURA Bath & Spa Paint


Benjamin Moore AURA Bath & Spa

Grade: Ultra-premium paint formulated to resist humidity and repeated scrubbing

Finishes: Matte

Formula Type: Proprietary 100% acrylic

Best Choice For: Bathrooms and saunas

Engineered for high-humidity spaces like bathrooms and saunas, Benjamin Moore’s AURA Bath & Spa Paint is formulated to withstand repeated scrubbing, resist moisture, and inhibit mildew growth. The matte sheen of AURA Bath & Spa is the only flat paint on the market that can be scrubbed. It will create a durable surface that resists water marks, even on light paint colors that show streaks easily.

As part of the AURA line, AURA Bath & Spa is available in Benjamin Moore’s 3,500+ colors, and AURA Color Stories — an exclusive collection of 240 hues. AURA paint colors contain more pigments than any other paint, with proprietary Color Lock Technology for colors that resist heavy wear and tear. This ultra-premium paint provides durable coverage in fewer coats, even when making dramatic color changes. It also dries quickly, with superior leveling to hide lap marks.

Scuff-X Paint


Benjamin Moore Scuff-X

Grade: Premium, commercial-grade paint for high-traffic spaces

Finishes: Matte, Eggshell, Satin, Semi-Gloss

Formula Type: Proprietary acrylic copolymer

Best Choice For: High-traffic areas like hallways, stairwells, mud rooms, offices, retail spaces, schools, and medical spaces

Benjamin Moore Scuff-X is a high-performance latex paint engineered for busy commercial spaces and high-traffic rooms. This breakthrough product is both washable and scuff-resistant, creating an exceptionally durable finish. Scuff-X is ideal for spaces with high foot traffic and susceptibility to scuffing and denting — such as mudrooms, garages, hallways, and stairwells. The easy-to-apply formula is splatter-resistant to reduce the amount of cleanup and will retain its high-quality appearance with minimal maintenance.

Scuff-X is available in four sheens and Benjamin Moore's 3,500+ colors. Note that its unique formula results in a glossier finish than other Benjamin Moore interior paints. An eggshell Scuff-X finish, for example, would be similar to a satin finish in a different paint product. To learn more about Scuff-X, read our review on The Best Paint For High Traffic Areas.

ADVANCE Interior Paint


Benjamin Moore ADVANCE

Grade: Premium waterborne paint for durable walls, trim, and cabinets

Finishes: Satin, Semi-Gloss, High-Gloss

Formula Type: Waterborne alkyd enamel

Best Choice For: Cabinets, trim, interior doors, exterior doors, crown molding, baseboards, furniture, handrails, and balusters

Benjamin Moore ADVANCE is a water-based alkyd paint that cures to a hard, furniture-quality finish. It’s our top recommendation for cabinets and other woodwork due to the outstanding quality and durability of the finish. However, it’s worth noting that this product is not ideal for projects on a time crunch. ADVANCE requires 16 hours of dry time before recoating. The slow dry time is what allows the paint to level — resulting in a remarkably smooth finish that hides lap marks.

While ADVANCE is primarily an interior paint, the high-gloss sheen is also formulated for use on exterior doors. If your project can afford a longer dry time, ADVANCE makes the perfect door paint — combining an elegant shine with a very durable, water-resistant finish that stands up to the weather and to regular scrubbing. For more details on this product, check out our ADVANCE Paint Review.

Waterborne Ceiling Paint


Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint

Grade: Premium high-hiding paint

Finish: Ultra flat

Formula Type: Acrylic latex

Best Choice For: Ceilings in any room

Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint is specially formulated to make painting ceilings as easy as possible with great results. The high-hiding, low-VOC formula covers common imperfections while the ultra-flat finish reduces glare. It also creates minimal spatter and cleans up with soap and water. For more detailed information on this premium ceiling paint, check out our Benjamin Moore Ceiling Paint Review.

Kitchen & Bath


Benjamin Moore Kitchen & Bath

Grade: Premium acrylic paint

Finish: Satin

Formula Type: 100% acrylic latex

Best Choice For: Kitchen and bathroom walls

Benjamin Moore Kitchen & Bath is an elegant satin paint with a washable, mildew-resistant finish. While AURA Bath & Spa is the most premium paint for walls and ceilings in humid bathrooms, it’s only available in a matte finish. Kitchen & Bath is an excellent option for a premium, washable paint that will add a little shine to bathroom or kitchen walls — and at a lower price point than the ultra-premium AURA line. Just remember that a satin finish will highlight surface texture and/or imperfections more easily than a flat or matte finish.

Floor & Patio


Benjamin Moore Floor & Patio

Grade: Premium floor coating

Finish: Low Sheen or High Gloss

Formula Type: Epoxy or urethane-modified acrylic floor enamel

Best Choice For: Staircase steps, breezeways, and other high-traffic floor surfaces

Benjamin Moore Floor & Patio is a premium quality, quick-drying floor enamel for both interior and exterior areas that experience significant foot traffic — such as basements, porches, patios, breezeways, and staircase steps. This durable finish resists marring and scratching, and features superior color retention for long-lasting results. Both sheens will withstand light foot traffic after drying overnight.
