I had a recent similar with Dulux Retail Endurance, colour was “Timeless”

Dried far too quickly and even backrollering didn’t work. I abandoned the retail paint, bought Dulux Flat Matt at my cost just to get job completed.

I dislike using Dulux (and Crown) primarily due to their vague and inaccurate colour tinting - the two DDCs in Bristol won’t guarantee colour accuracy between the two branches.
However I do find the Trade Flat Matt to be a very good product for opacity coverage and finish.

I can’t remember the last time I used Dulux retail, I’ll make sure I won’t again!
