Harvard Woman Uncovers Every Woman’s Dream… Watch The Mind-Blowing Video.

Imagine being able to choose of a color of eyeshadow or lipstick from a website and then be able to print it out at home? Well, you can now! Mink is the first desktop printer that prints out makeup just by taking any image and transforming into a wearable cosmetic. You’ll be able to do this at home!

Almost all makeup comes from the same basic substrates, whether they are high-end cosmetics like Chanel to the cheap brands sold at drug stores. The creator of Mink, Grace Choi, says, “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.” What she means by that is that color printers are available everywhere, and the ink that’s used is the same ink that makeup companies use in their products. Choi says the ink is FDA-approved.

The Mink uses regular printer ink. It will be available at the end of the year and will sell for less than $200.
