MANDY’S STAFF PICK MARCH 2021

The Kryolan nail polishes are shockingly amazing! They are only $4.50 and give you great coverage. While they do require a second coat of polish, the best part is each layer dries very fast. No more waiting 10 minutes for your second coat to dry just for it to smudge the second you touch anything!

Setting powder is a must when working with crème makeup. I love using Ben Nye’s Fair Translucent Setting Powder when doing beauty makeup. It takes the oiliness out of my makeup and keeps it on all day. I love how fine and smooth the powder is and how the slight tint helps even out completion.

I LOVE the DMC cross stitch kits for so many reasons! They come with literally everything you need to start cross stitching.  It even comes with a really great needle, but try not to drop it down your couch!!! (speaking from experience) 

The kit just makes it so simple to start. I was scared to start before because finding an easy pattern and all the supplies seemed just so daunting and I was sure I would buy at least one wrong item.  

But I was very surprised when I grabbed one and that was it. The kit actually had everything I needed and didn’t require me to buy a bunch of other stuff. However, I did grab a different colour and swapped it out to make a more customized first project. 

I can safely say it was super simple to start and now I am hooked! I highly recommend these kits if you are looking to start cross stitching.

Wig caps are an essential when it comes to wearing a wig, especially if you have a lot of hair like me. Wig caps hold your hair in place under your wig saving you from your natural locks peeking out. Wig caps also make wearing a wig more comfortable as it adds another layer between your skin and the wig cap. I personally love the mesh wig caps (wig net) because they are easy to pin through without ruining them.

Arda wigs are the newest distributer that has been brought into the store. And they are amazing! We love them so much. These wigs are gorgeous wigs that have an amazing variety of styles and colours to choose from. They look and feel amazing and natural and have lots of hair for you to style.

Some of the wig styles have fake scalps and all wigs have adjusters in the wig to fit a variety of head sizes. Some styles even have larger wig caps so if you have a large head or even lots of hair you can hide all your hair in them. These wigs come in a variety of natural colours as well as many great fun colours to choose from. All the colours have highlights and lowlights to create more dimension in the colours. The wigs we have are heat-resistant up to 215C! But to extend the life of your wig it is suggested to use a medium heat of 120C-150C. This means you can style all the wigs in any style you desire and change it to reuse your wigs many times.

These wigs are beautiful and you should come in and take a look at them!

 MARLON BUNDO BOW TIE

This new Theatre Garage bow tie is my new favourite thing!! The design and idea has a great back story from John Oliver of Last Night Tonight (please see below). This bow tie is all about love!

This bow tie design was inspired by the book “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” By Marlon Bundo with Jill Twiss. This children’s book focusses on the life of the gay bunny Marlon Bundo. We would like to thank John Oliver of Last Week Tonight for making this book happen. We were inspired by the book and its commitment to donate to the Trevor Project and AIDS Untited that we have decided to donate 50% of all of our Marlon Bundo inspired bow ties to the Edmonton Pride Centre.

You can get a get a copy of the book at: betterbunnybook.com

Face painting sponges are ideal for body painting large areas. Just cut the sponge into quarters, moisten and mix into a water based makeup puck. These porous sponges leave a much more even finish than a latex sponge.
