You may be looking at the future of makeup and it’s called Mink.
Mink is a 3D printer that lets you create your own custom cosmetics by mixing ink with cream, powder or any number of base materials used to create the same makeup you pay for in stores but at a fraction of the price.
Mink was invented by Grace Choi during her time at Harvard Business School. While the hardware is proprietary, it can use the image software already on your computer. Want TARDIS blue eyes? Pick the color from a picture of the TARDIS and with a few simple steps, you can be printing out a custom shadow right there at your desk.
Mink is currently expected to retail for around $300 but Choi says she expects pigments and substrates to be quite affordable. That’s a small price to pay for having an entire cosmetics store on your desktop.
