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.

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

    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

        I love this color. I was looking for a light shade of grey for my Home. I painted the entire house with this color and white trim. I used two 5 gallon buckets fir a 2700 sq ft home. This is definitely one coat paint but you must do it slowly and carefully so that a second coat isn’t needed. Paint runs very smooth and silky. The color has a bit of a light purple hue just FYI. I would recommend this paint to anyone.

        The Behr paint formula has really good one coat coverage. Goes on smooth and self levels out really nice. The color on the other hand is a little different. Although it's pretty the actual color you get on your walls depends on your lighting. The natural light vs artificial light on the same wall in diffrent places makes the wall look different shades of grey at the same time. I would still recommend especially if you like constant change. The light shade really opened up space.

        The only paint I will use. Covers most areas with one coat. You get what you pay for and BEHR MARQUEE Eggshell with Primer does the job. The Silver City covered a deep Yellow painted wall with one coat.

        I have used other gray colors in my home but they always seemed blueish or greenish in color. This is really a TRUE gray. I love that it is a bit lighter too. Really brightened my room.

          Hi Marc,

          Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the issue experienced, as it certainly isn't normal. Silver City (MQ2-59) should look like a medium-shade gray and not white. Usually when Home Depot tints the paint in-store, they place a dab of paint on the lid to show what the color inside looks like. If your paint was not tinted and does not have a color formula sticker or a small dab on the lid, you most likely purchased an untinted base of paint.

          Please contact Behr's Customer Care Department for further assistance with this matter. We'd love to find a way to help.

          Kindest regards,

          Doris Behr
            Not worth the price
            I was hoping that this was truly one coat paint. It should be for the price. But that was not the case. We bought the recommended rollers and brushes, but it did not cover. A month later and I am still finding spots that need to be touched up. We were not making a drastic change, just going a few shades darker. I would NEVER buy this paint again.

              Hi Chicago Tuff, thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear that the color did not turn out as expected. Typically, the lighting and surroundings in the room influence the way the color will turn out. It is a great idea to sample colors first. Also, unfortunately, colors on your screen are not the best representation of the color. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

              This paint is great as it is truly one coat coverage. The issue I have is false advertising regarding the rebate. I purchased four one gallon containers of this Behr paint. I was supposed to get $40 back in rebates. I only received $1.00. I followed all instructions for online rebate submission. I provided them everything needed. Do not buy this paint if you are counting on getting the rebate. If you search online, you will see this is an ongoing issue with the Behr rebates through HomeDepot. I will not recommend this paint not because of any issues with the product. The issue I have is with the HomeDepot not honoring the rebate.

                I love this paint. I painted my kitchen, dining room and laundry room with Behr Marquee - Silver City in January 2017. We love the shade of this gray against white trim. This was my first experience using Behr Marquee paint. I have always used Behr in the past and wanted to try out the "One Coat" line. I am not sure if this is one of the colors guaranteed to cover in one coat, I didn't look into that part while picking the color. Silver City does not cover with one coat, I would say it covered about 98% on the first coat. After drying, up close I could see tiny specks where the paint had not covered. I painted a second coat. Although I painted a 2nd coat I still 100% love this product, it is thick and durable. This paint cleans well and has not chipped or had any problems with in a year and a half. I have already painted another room with Behr Marquee.

                  Careful with Silver City, they call it silver but it comes out just like a light baby blue. A total waste of money. Behr needs to stop being so artsy with their colors and sell some true colors...when you get a gray,,,make it GRAY. If it has undertones, call it what it is...an overpriced light blue.

                  Hello TryItNow,
                  Thanks for taking the time to review our paint. I’m sorry to hear that Silver City didn’t match the color you were expecting. This isn’t the experience we want any of our customers to have. I recommend allowing the project to dry 24 hours from the time the last coat was applied. This may change to color closer to the match the chip. If it’s been more than 24 hours, I suggest choosing a different color as lighting may contribute to color change. For further assistance please feel free to reach out to our customer care team directly. We’d love to help get your project back on track. – Roxana N. Behr
                    I love this paint!!!
                    My walls original colors in multiple rooms were a mint green, powder pink, regular green, one room had wallpaper, blue, and purple . I did my entire downstairs in 8 hours which included the prep work , the edges, baseboards, and window borders. I used one coat in every room and it covered up everything nice and neatly. After such success with my downstairs, I purchased another 5 gallon for upstairs and did 2 bedrooms, one bath, and a hall Way in 4 hours. It was worth every freaking penny. I will never try a different paint.

                        This product was alright at best. I was expecting more of a silver color but got more of a really light grey. Even after mixing the paint thoroughly and prepping the walls with Behr Primer the end result was not quite what I expected color wise. However, the paint did work very well and made it easy to stay away from runs and streak marks. If I were to paint again I am not sure I would go with this color scheme as it isn't quite the color that is advertised based off of the color pallet.

                        Nice paint but...one coat coverage??
                        I have used Behr paint premium plus with primer before, I like their color selections but always had to do 2-3 coats to get a good coverage. Walls are textured so I expect that they will take more paint to cover well. I decided to try the Marquee since it "guarantees" one coat coverage, was painting a really small area right outside the bathroom, in this finish with a color called Anonymous which is a medium gray hue. The paint was a bit runny, had to be careful of drips. After one coat I waited about an hour and then went back to look, I found that there were areas that were not quite covered, you could still see the original color. Before I painted, the walls were vacuumed and cleaned to clear away any dust/dirt. After drying the paint does look nice, but will still need another coat, so I cannot give it more then an average rating due to this. I still like Behr products (have used the stain too for the floors), but I do not think I will be spending the extra money in the future for the Marquee line since I will still need to do a couple of coats.
