Print Your Own Makeup With MinkSee a color you like? Grab it off the screen and print it out in the form of makeup - lipstick, eyeshadow, foundation, and more - with the Mink printer. Grace Choi, creator of Mink, decided she wanted to disrupt the beauty industry. She did a little research and realized that beauty brands create and majorly mark-up their product costs by mixing lots of colors.
Mink is a proprietary printer that works just like an ink-jet printer. You won't need any new software. All you'll need is a color picker to grab the hexidecimal color code, software to print, substrates, and ink, which is the same ink used in retail makeup, already FDA approved.
"The makeup industry makes a whole lot of money on a whole lot of bullshit," Choi stated at TechCrunch Disrupt (in the video above). "They charge a huge premium on something that tech provides for free. That one thing is color."
The Mink Makeup Printer is expected to release at an initial retail price of $300.
