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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris One coat!
Puchased this paint after the sales person said it was guaranteed ONE COAT. Over the years as the family handy man I've never seen one coat paint and I was truly skeptical. After prepping the walls in our kitchen(why use expensive paint and not follow directions? ) I did notice the paint was thick and smell wasn't to bad. I didn't skimp on brushes and rollers. I started to cut in the room and quickly learned it is not like other paints I noticed a slower technique was best to allow the paint to adhere. Not to slow cause it does dry rather quick. Rolling the walls was the same don't roll fast and try not to stretch the paint. There is a learning curve with this paint once you catch on it really saves a lot of work. It's been two weeks after painting our kitchen and I can say It was ONE COAT and the wife is happy. I've also painted two rooms for my mother and the more I use this paint the more I like it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Juliet Like smearing bubblegum!
Oh how I wish I had read these reviews prior to purchasing this paint. Behr Marquee is SO hard to work with. As other reviews stated, it dries so quickly that it leaves ridges and ripples as you go. Don't dare go over a spot you've already covered, as the paint will peel and drag. I tried a thicker application with a brush. Initially I thought I had won, only to find the paint dripping 10 minutes later. Now it is so sticky, it's eating a high quality brush. This is like smearing chewed bubblegum on the walls! When it's dry I'll have to sand down and start over with another paint! Such a waste of time and money.

I purchased the Behr Marquee in the exterior satin to repaint my steel front door. I also purchased a gallon of Kilz 2 primer and applied a coat of that first since I was painting a barn red color on the door. After applying the first coat of Marquee, I'll be lucky if I only have to apply 2 coats. Very poor quality. For $41 a gallon, I expected a much better paint. I will never purchase the Marquee again and should have read the reviews first before making my paint purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn PAINT PEELS RIGHT OFF THE WALL!
We painted our bathroom with this and were highly disappointed. Let's start with coverage. It covered our burnt orange color pretty well, we painted over the orange with a dark blue. BUT if there are ANY little divots in your wall the paint does not get in them. Second, let's talk about the roller lines. They were TERRIBLE. Anywhere the roller would overlap would leave a thick messy line. Third, let's talk about durability. This paint has zero durability. Anytime you even skim the wall, the paint peels off. There's a towel rack in our bathroom. If your fingernails even so much as barely touch the wall when grabbing a towel, paint is gone. The paint goes on like a continuous latex film. If you use painter's tape, the paint peels off the wall no matter how carefully you remove the tape. We've used regular BEHR paint in our entire house and we've never had a single problem. Especially with the paint coming off the walls.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HelpfulCamille Worst paint ever
I have been using Behr paint for years now. Just wasted $85.00 and 2 days work on 2 gals of Marquee that now I have to repaint (so mad at Behr that I'm going to go to Benjamin Moore).
Have never had such a bad experience with paint in all my life as with the Marquee.
Just painted a long entry wall 10 feet high by 30 feet long. I'm a very good painter, and there are roller lines everywhere.
Marquee is impossible to work--thick, dries way too fast, matte finish is actually too shiny for my tastes and shows every line. Now Ihave to paint over the whole thing! Should have just stayed with ultra, or even ultra premium. What a waste of time and money. Save yourself from this frustration and just stick with the entry levell paint.

I just bought a house with off white/ yellow walls. We decided to use Natural Gray which is one of the colors of marquee that should only take one coat to repaint it. It's been about 2-3 coats depending on the wall. There is alot of color show through so we've had to go over some several times. We used thick coats of paint after noticing we were having patches of show through. Natual Gray is darker than the original wall it should have been easier then this! Also we painted on room that was a dark brown.... it took many times going over the walls. We have slight texture on our walls. I'm just happy we bought it on sale. I won't use it next time. It's a waste to pay that much more.
