Garbage...Worse paint ever!!!
I bought 2 gallons of this paint. It’s not 1 coast coverage if it’s not a marquee color. One color wasn’t a marquee color and it was horrible to paint with. One gallon barely covered a room 10x12 normal ceilings. It was so tacky and hard to paint with. Also there was all kinds of stuff in the paint. For instance a piece of wood (like a splinter) and other stuff. Then I painted another room and it was a marquee color and surprisingly it did do a one coat coverage. But it also has stuff in the paint. My other problem is when you use a brush it shows every line. It’s too thick to use a brush with. Now I’m going to have to sand it down and buy new paint. I want my money back for this over priced garage. FYI...I painted professionally for 2 to 3 years. So I know what I’m doing.
Response from BehrNov 23, 2020
Hi Tmw74- Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the debris in your paint, the lack of coverage you got with one of the gallons, and the brush marks! Our Marquee paint should not have an splinters or other debris in the can, and I'm concerned that this was the case for both cans you purchased. This product is also guaranteed to cover your previously painted or primed surfaces in one coat when tinted to a color from our One-Coat Color Collection. Colors outside of this collection may require additional coats for full coverage. To fix the finish, I recommend lightly sanding down the unwanted texture on your walls, wiping the surface down to remove the sanding dust, then touching up with more paint. We'd like to assist you with this further. Please feel free to reach out to us directly at your convenience. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Behr
    Love This!
    Only needed one coat, dried fast, didn’t smell. I used this on a bedroom that doesn’t get much light. No blue or green or violet undertones

      Great paint!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this paint as an accent wall in my living room and kitchen, it came out beautifully and was so easy to apply! The color choices are great (almost too many good options) and the paint itself was so easy to apply and we only had to use one coat!

          An absolute dream to work with
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got the Marquee Dynasty Eggshell in Sonic Silver to cover some 10+ year old flat mustard yellow. I really wasn't sure whether it would take one coat to cover such a garish color of old, poor quality, paint. The paint went on beautifully with no drips or splatters. It covered everything in one coat and I had to do minimal touch-ups. I give this paint 15/10.

            Frustrating To Work With
            This is the second time I've used Behr Marquee. My first experience was on kitchen cabinets, and I found it very hard to maintain a wet edge to work from. The paint becomes tacky in a matter of seconds, and leaves noticeable clotting lines where I started a new section. My second experience was no better when painting living room walls. You have to be extremely quick to keep a wet edge, or you will have tacky streaks showing. Behr Marquee paint is extremely frustrating to use and expensive, I would rather use cottage cheese!

            Hi Beebop, thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry to hear about your experience with our Marquee paint.

            To ensure the proper paint consistency before your application, we recommend stirring your paint for 3-5 minutes before using it. If it seems like the paint is drying too fast while you’re applying it, we’d suggest adding no more than 4 ounces of water to it to extend its workability. Keep in mind that our Marquee paint is thicker than some of our other paints (Premium Plus, Ultra), as it provides one coat coverage.

            To get your project back on track, if there are still visible streaks, we’d recommend recoating with a well-saturated roller or brush. Be sure to blend all the start and stop points, while maintaining a wet edge on the application tool.

            Customer satisfaction is very important to us. So, we’ve reached out to you directly to assist you further. Have a great rest of your weekend.
              Very Durabable and true to color
              Used the Ultra Pure White on base boards and Cabinets, very durable. All baseboards look brand new after cleaning them multiple times.

                Great coverage!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I repainted my dining room and totally changed from dark to lighter beige. It covered in one coat! I hired painters to repainted 2 bedroom and the only paint these ladies is Behr.

                  Found my Go To paint
                  I bought 5 gallons in the Halation gray to paint my new house. I’m so glad I spent more for the 1 coat coverage. It truly only needed one coat with some minor touch ups. It dried evenly and the color is perfect. I will be using Behr from not on.
