Smooth Application
This paint is smooth and goes on evenly. It feels thick enough to cover easily in one coat. In my application, I was painting over a blue color already with a darker blue colored paint. The application was easy, it dried well and it covered well in what would normally be a harder to cover color. Overall, with how easy it went on, and how well it covered, I’d buy it again.

Blue paint
This was a good product, I liked first that it didn’t have a strong odor, I did smell it but it wasn’t strong in any way. Applying it was very easy, with one coat it looked really good but with two coats it came out very uniform and still covered a pretty good sized area I would say 8’x35’ with ease. I don’t like dark rooms so I usually only paint one wall in each room with a dark color just to give them some color but still doesn’t feel like a cave.
Nice Color
Got this to sample in my laundry area, and it looks great. This paint looks to be very durable and capable of lasting for a very long time. Easy to apply use a brush, roller or pad, you can spry it on too. It has low VOC so you won't need extreme ventilation. Easy to clean up use soap and water. Easy to pour with the spout on the can. One of the best paints that you can get.
High quality, great color
Paint goes on very smooth and even, covers great in one coat, I am using 2 coats since going over a lighter color and I want the best full color possible from this paint. Use a high quality brush and roller. The can has a unique screw on lid and a pour spout that attaches to it as well to avoid the usual mess on the rim of the can. The satin finish makes the blue look even deeper. I feel this paint is high quality and should perform well in high traffic areas.
One coat for real!
Whenever I can I try out new products in my shop before I use it in my house. This paint was tried out on one of my shop work benches. This was home built and the wood was totally untreated. So this was a real test for a one coat paint. It passed with flying colors. Not only did it cover the wood in one coat, but it went on very smooth and evenly. Minimal dripping. Cleaned up well with just a little soap and water. Very happy with this paint and I look forward to using it again.

Did not cover evenly no matter what I tried.
I used the Behr Marquee Matte Compass Blue, did not cover in one coat and was uneven no matter what. I contacted Behr after buying two gallons and they did send me an additional gallon to finish the room which is great but it’s so unfortunate the paint is just not good because the color is beautiful. I painted 4 other rooms with all different paints, finishes and colors and this was the only one that came out bad. There are streaks and lines all over every wall. I tried sanding the walls and starting over and changed the rollers I used as well, nothing helped and I am just going to accept this until I have the energy to start over...again.

Hi AC, thank you for your review, and I am sorry to hear you continued to get an uneven finish with just this color. When you do fix the issue, make sure to maintain a wet edge and work in small sections. If you still need help with your project, please don't hesitate to reach out to us again; we'd be more than happy to help. -Edith 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.

          Bubbled and peeled under painters tape
          This stuff bubbled and peeled under painters tape. It costs too much to peel off of what it's painted onto.
          Response from BehrSep 8, 2021
          Hello NoThanks, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint bubbled and peeled under the tape. I recommend letting the paint dry for at least 24 hours, removing any loose coating, wiping off the sanding dust, then touching up with paint. If the area needs to be taped over again, I recommend allowing the fresh paint to dry for at least 24 hours before applying low tack painter’s tape to it. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr

                Fantastic Choice for Kitchen Interiors
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Behr Marquee Interior Eggshell Enamel is a perfect choice for rooms like Kitchens, because it's not overly matted nor glossy - that perfect in between for clean ups. Highly recommend! ;)

                  Works well over a good primer
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a light color to repaint a bedroom that had been pained a very dark color. Using a good primer made the marquee a one coat ( I was under no illusion that the light color would cover the dark with one coat. This is wonderful paint, rolls easily and looks gorgeous! I only choose Behr paint for every painting project, It is by far superior to the competition!

                        Excellent One Coat
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] One coat coverage is superb! Would not use any other paint until Dynasty came along! Having a animal rescue, I need fast one coat, stain sealing, rapid drying, easy cleaning and scrubbing, durable paint. Marquee is it! Anxious to try Dynasty now.

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I didn't think that a paint and primer all in one paint would work, but I was pleasantly surprised! The easy pour lid is an amazing addition to the paint game.

                            BEHR MARQUEE INTERIOR EGGSHELL ENAMEL.
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My name is John my Hodges and I'm the owner of Southern Boy's Painting & Home Services. I went to a customers house to give them an estimate on an interior paint job. They told me that the other 2 men told them it would take 2 coats to cover repainting there living room. I said if you trust me and I'm giving you my 2 year guarantee on the paint that I recommend. I can get it done in one coat and save you money all around. If I can't then the job is free. Bought the BEHR MARQUEE INTERIOR EGGSHELL ENAMEL. The paint actual was lighter than the color I was painting over. Well needles to say I was banking on there BEHR MARQUEE TO do what it said it would. From that day on and every house after that one I did I offer a cheaper price with a better paint and it stands up to the hype and test. I do not recommend any one to use nothing but BEHR MARQUEE AND THERE CEILING PAINT ONE COAT COVRAGE.

                                  Best paint out there!
                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I only use Behr paint and have for many years in many rooms in many houses. Great range of color choices, I think I've been from one end of the spectrum to the other. The paint is durable and stands up to time and the colors stays looking as new as the day I painted. I have tried the more expensive paints and they are not nearly as good as Behr paint.

                                    Lousy container!
                                    The paint is okay. It has good coverage. But the container stinks. It’s smaller than other tops so our pourer didn’t fit. The little opening is useless because the paint gets all over when you pour it. Put it back in the old can!
