1 gal. #MQ2-48 Sturdy Brown One-Coat Hide Matte Interior Paint is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat - light sage green on dark brown!! My dark brown bedroom needed more light and just a new look. The paint did 99% of the job. The room was dark brown and I feared it would take multiple coats to cover. I bought the Marquee based on its tag line. It was the easiest to use and best covering paint I have ever bought. I will never buy anything different. Thanks Behr!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't touch up - Paint flashes even in matte This paint may cover well but try to go back 1 or 2 years later and do touch ups. It flashes horribly even in matte, so the whole wall needs to be repainted. Will never touch Behr paint again. I am not a DIYer. I am a contractor who has applied thousands of gallons of paint. This is my 2nd horrible experience with Behr. I'm done!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible One coat coverage my patootie! It took three and four coats and ended up costing me way more than my contractors quoted price thanks to all the extra paint he had to buy! Plus, it spreads so thick you can see brush strokes everywhere! Loved the Behr color, but hated the Behr paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to for one coat coverage I decided to take a chance on this paint since I normally purchase "middle of the road" quality products. I've used Behr's interior paints extensively in the past and been very happy with them, but I had a particularly challenging paint job to do so I went with Marquee. I was painting over a dark crimson high gloss in a bathroom and was thrilled that this paint actually did the job in one coat. Excellent time saver and well worth the extra expense. I recommend this product for anyone who needs to cover up dark colored walls. Outstanding! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers "Textured Walls" I purchased this product to cover a" sabel brown textured painted" bathroom. I was really worried because I thought it would take two coats I was putting a drastically lighter color on the wall. I painted a bit slower than normal to make sure the paint went over all the "texture" and the walls look fantastic! Very easy to use, covered what I considered to be a difficult textured wall to paint and I was totally impressed felt like I was in a commercial after I finished painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint EVER!! I wanted to paint my teenage sons room to a nice light grey. I was worried I would have to prime the room first than have to put multiple coats on. The room was last painted like 7 years ago to be the Incredible Hulk room. Dark blue on 2 sides and dark green on the other 2. Well I got a light grey in the marguee and it only took 1 yes 1 coat to cover it up. I was so pleased that I have painted my living room and now the kitchen and 2 more bedrooms with the marquee. Thanks Behr [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Over priced, nothing special at all I am a moderately experienced DIY'er and painter who tried using Marquee with a high quality brush and roller. My conclusion is that Marquee does not offer any value for the high price. To paint over a mid-green with a lighter peach ("Cheese Powder") in Marquee, it took 5 (FIVE!) coats. I wanted to paint a second room the same light peach, so I played it safe and primed first. Even over primer, NO WAY did Marquee go on in one coat. I did two coats, and I feel like a third might be helpful because the color is still faintly splotchy. Also, when removing painters tape along edges, the paint peeled up in a couple places, which I've read others complain about too. I should have checked reviews first, Marquee is not worth the price at all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WhIle the kids are sleeping wonder! Bought the Marquee paint with high hopes of getting my son's room painted while he and his baby brother were sleeping. We were covering up a brighter shade of blue that the previous owners of our house had oh so horribly applied and hoped that the Marquee would pull thru as a one coat wonder but didn't actually think we would have beautifully painted wall before my kids woke up the following morning. We were pleasantly surprised! With one cup of wine and a few hours I was able to get the entire room finished in time to surprise my son with a new super hero gray the following morning! I will NEVER be using another type of paint again! Behr Marquee I am forever grateful!
