Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer4life Covers great with one coat
Our daughter just went off to college so we thought we would surprise her and remodel her bedroom. This paint went beautifully over the previous blue paint that she wanted when she was little. One coat really did the job. I ran out right at the end and had to buy another but it was worth it. I will definitely buy this brand again for our next remodeling project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KatG I really didn't believe the TV Commercials but this paint is AWESOME!.
I was a big Sherwin Williams fan up until now. I had seen the TV commercials for Behr where the guy painlessly transforms a dark grey room to light with 1 coat and thought...yeah right, but figured I would try it out! I was so sick of my dark rust colored walls and needed a change and was prepared to apply a couple of coats if necessary.
Well to my amazement, all it took was ONE coat and the results are fantastic. No touch-up or anything. I used a sheepskin roller and maybe this made a difference but I found it was so easy to work with and it went a long way as 1.5 gallons covered a large family room and kitchen. It dries fast but I had no problem with the pre-trimmed areas (ceiling, around windows doors etc.) matching with the rolled on paint. I think it does need constant stirring when you are refilling your trays or containers because it's a thicker paint and you may notice some separation, but it's not a big deal. Home Depot always includes a couple of good stirrer sticks.
From now on, this is my go-to paint and I will highly recommend it to everybody! Just LOVE it!
PS: Why buy a cheaper paint that you might have to buy double the amount because you have to apply 2 coats? This really works!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nannyisme Worst paint I have ever used.
When I opened this paint and went to pour it into my roller pan a thin dried clump of paint fell into my container. Makes me wonder if the paint sat on the counter for awhile at HD. The paint is thick, sticky and wants to roll up on itself. Once dried the paint peels off!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RCSA Two coats are better than one
The end result was very nice but it took two coats to achieve. I must admit the room used to be a dark brown so one coat would likely not have done it with any paint.

Tried the Behr Marquee 2 years ago to paint a recently acquired Condo and had it rented before closing. Thought we would try this paint, as in a hurry to have ready for the tenants.
Fabulous, LR, Kitchen, 2 bathrooms & 2 bedrooms done in a weekend and ALL covered in 1 coat. Could not believe. Just used again in another condo, covered in 1 coat a "Horrible" dark brown, almost black, 1 coat coverage with a light grey..... could not believe !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finished a 3 bd, 2 ba, Lr, Great room. Dr. & kitchen in a weekend, 1 COAT !!!!! 3 gallons of paint.
Cannot believe all of the horrible reviews, try again !

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JoieinSD Very poor paint choice, covers dark colors though
This paint does go on in "one coat", but it chips and scratches terribly. I am really unhappy with it. I spent a few hundred dollars doing a front entry, living/dining room and the walls just scuff up so badly. It's only been just under a year since I painted.
Luckily I didn't get around to doing the rest of the house, I will use another paint when I finally get to that. I would not buy this paint again, I would not recommend it at all. At the time they didn't have a satin in this formula, I had to go with the matte and it's awful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MJPainter HORRIBLE! Terrible waste of time, money and effort.
This is truly a horrible product. It absolutely does not cover in 1 coat. It takes two coats using the roller and 3 for doing any cutting out with the brush. Thick and difficult to apply considering it doesn't cover well the first couple of rolls and if you keep rolling over it it starts to really act up and looking bad. The paint starts getting a film right in the roller tray while you are using it as if it is drying faster than you can apply. Then when you apply the paint it starts leaving gooey clumps because of the film. Removing the paint and trying to touch it up really makes a mess. And I was painting in a 75 degree air conditioned bathroom. I have used the Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint everywhere in the house and have loved that paint. That is what I requested this time but the clerk incorrectly gave me Marquee so I went with it. I now have to go back for another gallon for the second coat. But I will go for the cheaper “Premium Plus” version since I have already used this Marquee paint as a very expensive bucket of primer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WIuser Not as advertised
Bought this paint because the one coat guarantee. I was told that my color was covered. Bought a new roller, even though I already had some at home. The employee said it was needed in order to work. Didn't do it at all. You can easily tell that there are white specks underneath the paint. I had already primed before and coverage was still bad. Also, the edging was done by hand and turned out darker than the recommended roller. Definitely going to be looking for a refund.
