Mink 3-D Printer That Makes Eyeshadows and Lipsticks


Attention all makeup junkies! The dream of having cosmetics in every color you crave has finally become a reality. We owe our giddiness and gratitude to Harvard grad Grace Choi, who invented a 3-D printing innovation called Mink. All you need to do is feed a photo of your favorite hue to the Mink machine and watch the magic unfold. The new invention allows you to take the hex code from any pixel and use it to print various makeup products. According to Choi, who presented Mink at the TechCrunch Disrupt 2014 conference, “The inkjet handles the pigment, and the same raw material substrates can create any type of makeup—from powders to cream and even lipstick.”

At $300 this could be one of the best options for bold beaut-istas who spend tons of money on products. The innovative creation is set to release later this year. Vixens, what are your thoughts on the out-of-this-world invention? Would you cop?
