As far as I am concerned, this paint is a national treasure! I started painting with Glidden bright red and the results were disastrous. Awful coverage and I didn't like the way the room looked in red, too. I bought Behr Marquee in Home Depot in a turquose color guaranteed with one application coverage and the results were unbelievable. It was covering dark red wall as if it was pure white. Almost doesn't splatter, and there is about 1/3 less paint needed vs. even other Behr brands. Amazing.

I am very happy with both the color and the quality of this paint. The color is beautiful and really brightened up my bathroom and covered beautifully with one coat. I used some of the left over paint on an old wrought iron cocktail table from the Fifties and the table came out looking great.

I didn't want to pay this price for paint, but this paint Rocks!!! I was never able to paint a room with such ease, It went on walls so nice, dried nice, no roller marks and clean up was great! My walls look wonderful and I did it in ONE coat, which is totally awesome!! I am very very pleased and highly recommend using Marquee!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by handyguy Doesn't Always Stick to the Wall
The paint covers well but doesn't stick well when masked later for caulking or other trim. Even when left in place for more than a week and using blue painters easy release tape the paint still pulls off of the wall. Touching up all of the places needing fixing is time consuming pain in the butt.
This is the best most expensive paint Home Depot sells, but with this issue I wouldn't recommend it over less expensive paints.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cherwg4800 Worked Like a Charm! Goodbye Horse Covered Vinyl Wallpaper!
I convinced my parents to purchase this paint as I had seen the advertisements for the "One Coat Coverage." We were attempting to paint over a very busy vinyl wallpaper that covered the kitchen walls in my parents' older but newly purchased mobile home. Although this paint is a little spendy, it does exactly as it says. It covers in one coat! Even on vinyl wallpaper, it adhered and covered well. I can't honestly say that another type of less expensive paint wouldn't do just as well after several coats, but to be honest, my time is worth more than that. One coat coverage with this paint is the way to go!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by amandaonline beware of "one coat guarantee"
I purchased this paint specifically for the one coat guarantee. I had planned to paint my fiancé's home office as a surprise while he was away on business; it was important that the chosen paint need one coat so it would have time to dry and offgas before the office would be needed again. (He works remote, so it's a daily-use office.) The prior wall color was a creamy white, and I chose a medium tone blue. I prepped the walls with diluted vinegar to ensure a clean surface. I applied paint as I always do: I edged first with a Wooster brush, then coated the walls generously using a premium no-lint roller nap. However, once dry I noticed white spots showing through in various places. I did not have time for a second coat, so I quickly touched up a few key (eye-level) spots with a foam brush. When I asked my local Home Depot about the "one coat guarantee", offering to bring in pictures if needed, I was only offered more paint. As I explained to the folks at the paint counter, more paint is not needed; this is an 8x10 room with 7 windows and French doors and thus only about 150 square feet, if that, of painted walls. Had I known two coats would be required regardless, I wouldn't have purchased the more-expensive Marquee paint. Apparently this isn't a reasonable line of thought. I was very disappointed to learn they wouldn't even refund me the difference in cost, which is all that I requested. Will not buy paint here again. I should have known better; I'm normally Benjamin Moore loyal, but I was willing to gamble that big box store paint has improved. Clearly it has not.

When they stated that it would only require one coat I was skeptical. I had a forest green wall that I needed to make a light cream color and was not looking forward to having to spend all day painting so I paid more for the marquee paint. I wish I had done this earlier because I was absolutely floored by how well it worked. It may have been nearly twice as expensive as what I would normally buy but I had to use 1/2 the paint and 1/4 of the time to devoted to the project. The picture that I took was specifically to text to my wife to prove to her that it only took one coat because she did not believe me that it could be done. I am very impressed with the quality and ease of its use.
I recommend this product highly. We used 2 gallons to paint our living room, the hall way, and the bed room and we were changing the color of the rooms from a very dark green and blue to a light cream color. If you look at the picture you can see the green paint at the edge of the paint and know that it took only one coat.

This was recommended for the bright green pigment we used for our 2nd bedroom. The color is brilliant, some did come off when we pulled the tape along the ceiling. 1 1/2 coats over primer, used half the can. This
