Good White Satin recommendation

Hi, I am painting trim, doors, baseboards, etc and I am using Behr Ultra Pure White Satin. Everything has been primed twice, and painted twice, but the the wood from the doors still shows through.

The doors were stripped, sanded down to barewood, were primed twice, and painted twice .

Was wondering if it was the paint or if I have to keep applying thin coats to the doors and build them up. If it's crappy paint can anyone recommend a good White Satin from somewhere? I experienced a similar issue a year or so ago with pine beadboard, I just can't remember what paint i was using, the wood just seemed to soak up the paint.

Thanks Kevin

It's crappy paint
Try a coat of Ben Moore's Satin Impervo (waterborne enamel)
I'd recommend two coats, but you'll see a difference after one

...or Sherwin Williams ProClassic waterborne enamel, that's good too

thanks Slickshift.
I had got done stripping/refinishing the doors last spring ,removing layers ,upon layers of gummy varnish and old paint, the last thing I wanted to do after all that worked was to have to put on several coats of paint.

I have a Ben Moore's 5 miles down the street I will go with that.

I can also recomend SWP. I also prefer the waterborne enamels but either BM or SWP latex enamel is miles above Behr in quality.
