Clare Paint Review

I love online ordering, especially lately. While I don’t mind an errand or 2 a week, we’re still trying to limit the number of places we go.

When I learned that you could get paint shipped to your door, I was in!

You can get everything you need at Clare Paint. They carry primer, trim paint, ceiling paint, and even paint supplies.

Swatches from Clare Paint

Clare has a limited palette of colors, which makes it easier to choose paint colors. You can order swatches, which are 8″ square removable wall stickers. These stickers are a larger size than traditional paint swatches, so it’s easy to see from across the room.

I ordered swatches for Rosé Season, Irony, Views, Two Scoops, Headspace, and Vacay. It was easy to see at a glance which colors I didn’t like for my bedroom.

Unsurprisingly, I was left with 3 shades in the teal/aqua family to choose from: Views, Headspace, and Vacay. Although I loved Headspace, I ended up choosing Vacay. It’s the perfect moody teal.

The swatches are an important part of the ordering process, so don’t skip it. I looked online to find images of rooms painted in Clare Vacay and the few I found looked like a much bolder teal (the top swatch). The swatch color was very accurate.

Fast Shipping Time

I’m impatient, so shipping time was something that I was concerned about. Both the swatches and the paint arrived at my house within 2-3 days.

The paint comes in a happy yellow box, straight to your door.

The box was well packed and the paint was even placed in a plastic bag to prevent leaking. The cans are sealed with little metal brackets that can be popped off using a paint can opener.

Painting with Clare Paint

The coverage for Clare Paint was excellent. I was covering both a dark blue color and a pale gray paint color. The Clare paint was able to cover both colors equally well. It was almost 1 coat coverage, in fact. (Two coats is always a better idea though because the paint color has more depth.)

I used way less paint than I normally use because it covered so well. This room barely took a gallon.

The one downside (which is actually a good thing) is that Clare Paint is the most difficult paint to clean out of a paintbrush I have ever used. It also got on my skin and was really hard to remove.

Why is this a good thing? If it sticks this well to a paintbrush and skin, it will definitely stick to your walls!

I love how velvety the walls look. Vacay is the exact color that I wanted and the room feels so cozy now!
