On 3rd coat and still not completely covering.
I bought the Marquee paint because of the one coat guarantee. We used a Behr color tint, English Daisy. Surfaces were previously painted and were prepped according to the directions. This has to be the worst covering paint I have ever used. We will have to buy the second gallon in order to finish our kitchen, and considering that we aren’t talking about a huge amount of space to paint (cabinets, doorways, windows take up most of the wall space), this is ridiculous. A total waste of time and money. See attached pics, I am very disappointed in this product.

Hi Mellie,

Thank you for reviewing our paint. I'm sorry to hear that you're not getting the coverage you were expecting in your kitchen. Our Marquee Interior paint is guaranteed to cover your previously painted or primed surfaces in one coat when tinted to a color from our One-Coat Color Collection. The color English Daisy P290-6 isn't part of this collection, so additional coats may be needed for full coverage. To fix, I recommend applying another coat for a uniform finish. For further assistance with this, please feel free to reach out to us directly. - Sara Behr
    Had to paint 2 coats, still looks uneven
    Had to coat 2x for proper coverage. Wall started with a light blue. After I painted a second time around, it had like these weird streaks of unevenness, will have to do a 3rd coat. Area painted was 189 SF (with the 2nd coat, 378 SF Total, gallon is suppose to cover 400 SF). The gallon barely made it. For the price of the “Marquee” line, I expected it flawless upon the 2nd coat. 3 stars is for e beautiful color. The ugly uneven streaks in the sample image below are throughout the entire wall.

      Goes on smooth, dries fast, and covers like a down blanket! We have an outdoor covered porch that was finished on the underside with bare wood pine beadboard. We used a bit name paint stores best outdoor paint and used four coats of Duration Super White, and called it a job well done. Unfortunately, a year later, we started noticing the knots in the wood starting bleeding through. It got progressively worse, and we knew that we had to cover it up. Painting it white again was not an option. The cover paint would have to be as dark or darker than the knots that were bleeding through. Since the porch floor was grey and the color scheme was already in a color scheme that called for greys to be incorporated, we decided on a color called Magnet in the Behr Marquee. It turned out AMAZING! One coat coverage over most of the ceiling, with needing a brush touch up for the beadboard lines and seams. We could not be happier with the paint and the performance. Needless to say, we will not be going back to that "paint store".

      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.
