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".

      This paint is great. We used a medium dark gray to cover a very dark blue. One coat and it looks fabulous. We are very pleased.

      Flat is closer to eggshell or satin
      Very very hard to paint with as dries very fast and hard to keep a wet edge. As a result lap marks and diffetent texture depending on how wet the roller is are almost a given and since flat has a very significant sheen the markes are obvious. Would beb a disaster on high ceilings or walls with light that shines at an angle. Not happy at all. Just skip.this paint!

      Hi Alabamamike, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the matte finish was glossier than expected, and that the paint dried too fast. This is not typical, and I understand your disappointment. I recommend adding 4 oz. of water per gallon to slow down the dry time, and recoating to get an even finish. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. I'll reach out to you in a private email to find the best way to help. Have a great day! -Giovanna
        Great coverage
        This is a really great product that has fantastic coverage, even on the first coat. Covers even dark colors with one coat. I usually do two coats to give an even greater finished product. Looks great when dry and washes extremely well. It’s well worth the extra money!

            Beautiful Color!
            Ocean Abyss is a beautiful color! I used it for my living room and office walls. It went on easily and smoothly. The only issues I had I would attribute to my lack of experience painting and roller quality. I did need to go over the walls twice in most areas but that was somewhat expected - white under this color will show clearly if it isn't completely covered, so either make sure you do a very thorough job the first time or plan for 2 coats.
