Makeup and beauty products are a ripoff. Harvard Business student Grace Choi is going to blow your mind with Mink 3D, a 3D printer that prints makeup, so you can not only create your own products, but also save a ton of money and define your own perfect look.
Choi will sell Mink for $300, and it works like any other printer, except it prints, well, stuff you’re going to put on your face.
If you like your friend’s lipstick or want to channel the color of Lady Gaga’s latest wig into an eyeshadow, you can snap a photo or screengrab, copy the hexadecimal code of the color (she shows how above) and print it out and wear it whenever you want.
Choi explains, “The makeup industry makes a whole lot of money on a whole lot of bulls—. They charge a huge premium on something that tech provides for free. That one thing is color.”
Watch the clip above to see how Mink 3D works, as well as just how charming Choi is. (I love a woman who curses!)
