Ran out of Makeup? Just 3D-Print Some More with Mink!

 |  |  |  |  May 8, 2014


3D printers are becoming quite popular, and there seems to be no end in sight about the things that they can output. However, this is the first time I’ve heard anything about one that can print makeup.

The Mink was launched at TechCrunch Disrupt, and it brings a new application to 3D printing. The printer lets users choose colors from anywhere, and use their software to print blush, eye shadow, lip gloss, or any other kind of makeup. It’s creator, Grace Choi says the materials use the same substrates as other makeup, and the printer’s inkjet add pigment to the raw materials to create the custom-colored makeup.

The system would allow the choice of just about any color you want, which is a limiting factor when it comes to store brands. You upload an image into the software, use a color picker to select the desired hue, then print away.

The Mink makeup printer is expected to cost less than $200, and its creator hopes to launch it by the end of the year.
