Benjamin Moore offers two types of color swatches:
Paint Samples (available in stores and online) - Paint samples are 16 oz. cans of paint in the color of your choice. They are only available with eggshell glitter and are formulated for indoor use only.

Paint swatches cover approximately two 4 'x 4' areas or eight 2 'x 2' areas with two coats of paint. You can brush a paint swatch directly onto the wall or onto white card stock. We recommend a large white card so you can move it around the room throughout the day to see how it looks in different lighting conditions.

This helps avoid "surprises" in your final color choice. If you choose to brush your paint swatch directly onto your wall, consider using a primer if necessary.
Color Swatches (Available in our Store Only) - These 4 ”x 8” swatches, with an eggshell finish, allow you to test a color without painting a wall. Color swatches are a good choice when it comes to deciding between multiple colors at once.

Simply tape them to the wall (note that color swatches do not "peel and stick"), view them in different lighting conditions, and compare colors with others.

Both paint and color samples are final sale and are not eligible for refunds. Paint swatches and color swatches are shipped from different locations, so they may arrive at different times. There is a maximum of 10 color swatches per customer.

Gennex® Color Technology is the reason that you cannot “match” Benjamin Moore® color in another paint brand. Why? Because the combination of Benjamin Moore’s proprietary Gennex® waterborne colorant with Benjamin Moore paint creates an end-result that simply cannot be replicated.

Most common paint colorants require the addition of certain chemicals so that they can easily mix into any number of paints—chemicals that ultimately weaken them. Proprietary Gennex Color Technology is engineered specifically by Benjamin Moore, for Benjamin Moore paints. The result is the premium paint that makes Benjamin Moore synonymous with quality.

Aura® Interior paint, Aura® Exterior paint, Natura® Interior paint, Regal® Select Interior paint, Regal® Select Exterior paint, ben® Interior paint, ben® Exterior paint and many others are engineered with the “science” behind Benjamin Moore quality.

Benjamin Moore’s proprietary Color Lock® technology is exclusive to premium Aura® Interior paint and Aura® Exterior paint. Thanks to Color Lock®, color pigments are locked into the paint film, so color doesn’t fade, even after repeated washings. Benefits of Aura® with Color Lock® technology include:

  • Covers walls more completely so you can use less paint
  • Unprecedented durability and no color rub-off, even after repeated washings
  • Extreme hide to cover dark colors and imperfections
  • Uniquely smooth finish

In addition to Aura® Interior and Exterior paints, Color Lock® enhances Aura® Color Stories®, a sophisticated collection of 240 colors that exhibit an accentuated response to different lighting conditions.

Available for iPhones and Android OS phones, the Color Capture® app lets you capture color with your phone's camera and instantly find its match from Benjamin Moore's 3500+ paint colors.
