I paid more because I thought I would achieve the best results. On the contrary! First of all, flat paint should be flat. This paint has a very detectable sheen. Second, “one-coat hide” is bologna. You’d need to be in a room with no windows for this paint to truly be one-coat. I’ve painted many ceilings and I’ve never been more disappointed with a paint product. Waste of time. Pay more elsewhere for better results. The attached photo is 24 hrs. after two coats were applied with an 18” roller

Hi Lisa, thanks for the review. I'm sorry to hear that you're not getting good coverage and that there was a detectable sheen. Our Marquee paint should cover in one coat when tinted to one of the one-coat colors and applied over a previously painted surface.

Not A Sub for The Behr Ultra Paint
Home Depot was out of the Behr Ultra ceiling paint we’d been using (5558) and we were told this was equivalent. It’s not. This product is more eggshell than flat and has a gray tint rather than being pure white. Would not recommend.
In the photo you can see where we started with the Ultra (5558) and tried to do some touch ups with the Marquee (1458).
Response from BehrAug 9, 2021
Hello, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the Marquee Ceiling Paint did not turn out as expected. Unfortunately, the Marquee Paint should not be used to touch up the Ultra Paint, as they are not identical. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna

DON'T BUY This Unless You Want Streaks and Blotches and Want to Repaint!
We purchased 6 gallons of this paint for our ceiling in our new basement. ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. We had professional painters come paint the basement. They did the rest of our house, which looks amazing (so we know it's not them). This ceiling paint showed up blotchy. It shows up with a sheen/gloss. It's uneven. It's left streaks. We now have to have the entire ceiling repainted after all our trim and cabinetry was built. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT! We are getting reimbursement from Behr directly for the product, but will also be demanding reimbursement for labor associated with having painters redo the ceiling. I am so dissappointed in this product. Unforunately, we will never use Behr paint again after this project.

Hello Justin, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint was blotchy, uneven, and left streaks. I recommend sanding smooth any texture the streaks may have left, cleaning off the sanding dust, and recoating with our Marquee Interior Flat Paint instead, as this should provide a more even finish across the ceiling. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team again directly for further assistance with this.

Product is not as described, not suitable for popcorn ceiling. Even the sqfts provided on the can do not cover in one can. Do not buy this product
Response from BehrMay 25, 2021
Hello Irfan, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint didn't cover your ceiling as expected with the one can. Typically a 3.79 liter container of our Marquee Interior Ceiling Paint should cover 27.9-37.2 square meters. I recommend recoating across the surface to get better coverage on your popcorn ceiling.

As Bill reviewed on 3/11/21, I couldn't have said it any better. I applied a total of 4 gallons for a kitchen. NOTE- there was nothing wrong with the ceiling prior to repainting. I just wanted to change from my Princeton white color to a ceiling white color. I started out with 2 gallons Marguee White ceiling flat wall paint. After paint dried, the blotches and roll marks became very visible. Then I went to HD and they suggested the Behr Plus. I applied 2 more gallons of this and only marginal improvement (see pic). Looks ok at night, but during the day when sunlight comes in, you see all the roller marks. The paint also leaves small pitting. So now, I went and purchased a pole sander and sanded entire ceiling!! I am contacting a painting contractor, who will probably use another brand paint. I have painted my entire house with Behr wall paints and have no prior problems. I have also painted ceilings before with other brands and have NEVER had this problem. This paint should be recalled!

Thank you for sharing your experience with Behr Marquee and Premium Plus Ceiling Paint. I'm very sorry to hear about the roller mark and texture issues you had, as it's definitely not what we want our customers to go through. Applying another coat perpendicular to to the roller marks should help improve the appearance significantly. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance. We'd love to learn more about your project and find the best way to help.

Terrible paint, not flat, blotchy
I’m really disappointed in this paint. It is not flat but rather has a sheen to it especially in the sunlight. It also looks very blotchy. It goes on very thick but does not cover well at all. It takes several strokes to get good coverage. It took a gallon to cover a small kitchen ceiling. After it dried it showed swirls all over the ceiling. I would never buy this again.
Response from BehrFeb 22, 2021
Hello ST, thank you for your review. I am so sorry the sheen is blotchy and that the paint didn't cover well. Typically most colors will cover in 1-2 coats, though additional coats may be needed depending on the surface, application, and color. I recommend allowing the last coat applied to dry for 24 hours then recoating across the surface for better coverage and a more even sheen.

Terrible. Not white and probably not “one coat"
I used the Bher Ultra ceiling paint in my living room, and it was great. This Marquee variety is terrible. Rathet than matching the ultra variety, the Marquee is a dull gray white that does not match and hardly seems like it would work with one coat. Stick with the ultra.

AVOID this paint- NOT FLAT
This paint is not flat, more like eggshell finish. I am an experienced painter and have used Behr products for 10+ years with no issues! BUT! This fancy ceiling paint is terrible as it has a shine to it and roller brush strokes are seen all over the ceiling when looking at the angle. For textured ceilings probably not a problem- hence all the 5 star reviews here, but terrible for smooth ceilings. After wasting $80 on Marquee, I bought Behr Premium Plus ceiling paint (half the cost) and tried on a little square. See the pictures!!! The little square of basic paint is TRUELY flat AND so much whiter!! The rest of the ceiling is Marquee with terrible shine and streaks from roller brush! Do not buy this paint for smooth ceilings!

I’m an experienced painter. This is the third time I’ve tried Behr Marquee. It smudges something terrible. The first time I thought it was because I left the can outside in 50 degree weather. It smudges terribly in the closet. I sanded the wall and tried again with a fresh can. No issues. Then I tried again in the bathroom with a fresh can. Again it smudged. What happened is you put your first roller full on the wall. Then dip your roller for the next section and put that on the wall. Anything that touches the first section, immediately pulls and smudges. This should not happen. This is happening with a brush as well. Very annoying. I tried this a third time today with a fresh sample from Home Depot. I brushed it on and it immediately smudges. The formula is just too thick and ironically it does not cover in one coat. I will not be using marquee paint in the future. It requires multiple coats anyway so I will be sticking with Behr Ultra
Photos are from brushing on a quick sample of an eggshell finish. I will have to sand it now

Hi Lwharma, thank you for your review. I am so sorry our paint is smudging and that it is not covering in one coat as expected. Typically our Marquee Paint should cover in one coat when tinted to select colors from our One-Coat Color Collection and applied to a previously coated surface. Colors outside this collection may require additional coats to provide the coverage needed. If the paint continues to pull off the previous section as you roll or brush over it again, I recommend thinning the paint with up to 4 ounces of water to help extend the working time of the paint. If the coating left a texture on your project, allow the coating to dry for 24 hours, gently sand the surface smooth with 180-240 grit sandpaper, clean the surface, and touch up or recoat once the surface is dry.
