Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved that it goes on pink and dries white I purchased this a little over a month ago. I removed the popcorn ceiling from my sons bedroom. This paint covered well and the color changing feature made it easy to see what what needed to be painted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ceiling Paint Ever!! We bought this ceiling paint earlier this month for our bathroom as well as a bedroom. It is the best paint ever! The color changing feature is amazing. The paint starts out pink and turns white when it dries. It was beyond helpful to tell where the paint had gone and which areas still needed it. Coverage was great, and it doesn’t splatter either which is a necessity when doing a ceiling. Won’t use another ceiling paint ever again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Ceiling stain I had a vent pipe with a seal that cracked in the South Carolina heat, discovered it when the rainy season started when the leak came down into my bedroom. Fixed the leak and removed the texture around the leak, then patched it to match the texture, applied the kilz over the stained ceiling and the new texture and it was fantastic, The pink color changed when it dried and a had a perfect match, cant see the repair at all. Fantastic product and great for this Old Lady to handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. My husband and I are property managers, we often have tenants who smoke. When that happens we use the kilz colorchanging ceiling paint to brighten up the ceilings. It works great with a spray gun and it's so easy to see where you have sprayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic paint I bought this to paint ceiling in my kitchen because I always have trouble making sure I've covered all areas when I'm using the same color as is already on it. I hate painting ceilings anyway so this was a great way to go and it looks amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color changing features. Love this Ceiling Paint. The color features make it so much easier to apply and to make sure you have applied it to all the ceiling. Sometimes with dim lights in the room, I have been known to skip spots, but NOT with this Amazing product. I get it right every time and it always looks amazing. It is also a great quality paint. The only one I will ever use again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use in our Rentals We own some rental homes and have always relied on Kilz products to do the job needed. The last home we purchased one had some ceiling stains as roof had previously leaked before being replaced. Kilz to the rescue again. You can see where you are painting due to the pale tint that later dries white. Great product and now the stain will be gone forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! when we bought our house, the ceiling had soo much stuff on dried food,etc...we used Kilz stainblocking ceiling was like magic!! coat and it was like new!! love Kilz!! our go to brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kilz is a Family Fav! We have tried other types of stain blockers/covers but always go back to Kilz! When the kids were little, somehow they would get their juice, usually grape, on the ceiling. If you don't get it right away it stains and is hard to just cover with paint when we redo our home. But, Kilz ceiling paint w/stain blockers helps me to just use one coat instead of using a stain blocker then a paint. Saves time, energy, and money! Clean-up is a breeze too.
