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.

Choi stated at TechCrunch Disrupt:

"The makeup industry makes a whole lot of money on a whole lot of bullshit. 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.
