This year, the focus was on a lot of the indie cosmetic brands such as Lippie Book, Eye Kandy, B3Brush Beauty Balm, OMGLO Cosmetics, Glogirl Cosmetics just to name a few; but one of the indie brands that stood out the most was CHROM; So it’s a tooth polish much like a nail polish that can be applied and removed in a matter of seconds and it lasts up to 24 hours. The polish comes in array of colors. Once applied, it will not smudge and it has no taste. Okay, I know you’re wondering, why would someone want to polish their teeth a different color? Well according to the CHROM website www.toothpolish.com , “After all, makeup isn’t for fitting in, it’s for standing out.”
