Can I use Kilz as primer then apply Ben by Benjamin Moore?

Looks like Ben by Ben Moore is an acrylic blend. Is that safe to use on walls that were primed with Kilz original??

I have received 3 different answers from "professionals"

also- is the "Ben" line at Benjamin Moore decent?? The Benjamin Moore guy told us it is far superior to Home Depot paint but is comparable in price, so we'd be better off getting the better quality BM paint versus the Home Depot stuff. BM has so many lines of paint that it is overwhelming trying to decide which one to get!!!

lastly- would it be a good idea to use the Kilz on oak baseboard as a primer? The house was lived in by a smoker so we want to give everything a fresh coat!
