Print Your Own Makeup With Mink

See 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.
