Experiences with TAG

Post by Ellen Rijzinga on Tue Aug 24, 2010 5:11 pm

Does anyone use TAG schmink from Australia... I bought some beautiful red and the black which I personally found not as good as the DFX but better then Grimas. Before buying more I would like to hear from other users....

thnx

In my opinion the red and black are almost identical to the DFX. Now, the white isn't *quite* as good, though very close. This is just my perception - it may not actually be true, LOL!

If you search Metina's recent posts you will find one explaining why DFX/TAG are very similar....

I use TAG & love it. I have every pearl colour in their range & white, brown, lime green, Berry wine. I've been very happy with the results. Although the lime green, pearl green do stain a bit. I haven't used the red or black though. I do love the vibrancy of the pearl colours & the way they shimmer.

I've just recently tried TAG and I wasn't a big fan of it. It's not as great as Wolfe, but compares to DFX sorta. Their white isn't the best...if it's your first paint you use, I don't think you'll be dissapointed too much...but if you've used Wolfe before tag, you may be a little let down. JMO. Give it a try and if ya don't like it, swap it out in the swap shop.

I have the pearl white and pearl black, and LOVE them both. I covered almost my whole bald head in the pearl black and it washed right off. I couldn't believe it.

Nick and Brian Wolfe said that DFX, Wolfe, and TAG are the exact same thing produced in the same factory as WolfeFX...I suppose this could be misinformation, but I am going to assume that they would know...I have found slight differences between same brand paints, since they are produced in batches, there are bound to be slight differences in color and texture, just as you will find in wall paints, etc...I just purchased some TAG black, white, and pearl colors...I guess I'll see for myself

They're telling the truth. Diamond FX is actually their line now... Not Wolfe. The bases are all the same, the pigments are just different.
