In my experience, it's always worth spending a bit more to get a good quality masking tape when using for paintin
I’ve painted my entire house over the last 2 years with Poundland masking tape and never had a problem. Just make sure you go over it a few times after putting it down to make sure it’s stuck. Nothing wrong with it
Likewise, does what it’s meant to do. Just used it for the children’s room and had no issues. Worth the £1
Used this stuff for years. Think you used to get 5 rolls for £1. Never had a problem with it. Put it down just before you are about to paint and remove it as soon as you finish. Have used much more expensive rolls also, but for the amount paid not much difference.
I like the blue colour better.
Tried to use this a few years back for painting was awful didn't stick to the walls and kept falling off ended up buying more expensive stuff and throwing this in bin.
Never get cheap masking tape its false economy. Your end up with it not sticking properly OR not sealing against paint leaking through OR tearing into tons of small pieces when you try and remove it after the paint has dried
I've just used this for taping a ceiling that was previously painted as part of my wall prep.
Worked a treat. Low tac as you would want and didn't rip or tear when taken down.
Hear from me. 🔥
Tried to shut my mouth with this last year and keep me out of trouble. Didn’t last long.
Although I would normally agree with your comment, I came across a way to paint crisp lines last year that I wish I'd known years ago and the quality of tape becomes less of an issue.

You lay your masking tape as usual, but instead of painting with the intended colour, paint a thin line of the colour you are masking off along the mask line and let dry.

What this does is seal the mask line and if any bleed through takes place, it's the same colour as what's underneath anyway.

Once dried, the mask line is sealed and you can paint with the intended colour over the top of of the paint line you've painted earlier.

Obviously better if painting light colours first, but not totally necessary.

I did this the first time and with baited breath peeled off the masking tape to see the neatest mask line in over 20+ years of painting.

There's videos on YT that show you what to do and the results.

Here's one:
