Ralph Lauren paint vs Aura

Posted by lnmca (My Page) on

Hi! I'm a painting newbie but I love it. I really shouldn't be spending time painting as I have a crazy household to run but I can't resist (in fact my husband strongly encouraged me to hire it out due to constraints on my time).

I painted our breakfast nook with Aura after copious amounts of reading and searching on this forum about a year and a half ago and, after following all the steps, it turned out GREAT. I loved working with Aura. I didn't have to fuss with it and it self-leveled beautifully. I'm tackling our basement next from soup to nuts. I am choosing Ralph Lauren colors but really like Aura paint. I am afraid to get the RL colors mixed into the Aura base for color matching purposes (is this a valid fear?) and the idea of spending less $ per gallon on paint appeals to me.
Question: If I have only used Aura before, will I have a hard time transitioning to painting with RL paint? How do I do it differently? Do I have to fuss with the paint more to get an even outcome?
Thanks in advance for any answers you can provide.

Stick to the Aura, RL paint is inferior.
