Would You Buy A 3D Make-up Printer?
Mink Beauty shook the beauty world when they first introduced their revolutionary concept of a 3D make-up printer at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in 2014. Now, nearly five years later, the company is back in the spotlight as the 3D printer is finally available for pre-order.
At 2.2 pounds, the world's first 3D make-up printer is ultra-portable and boasts the ability to print up to 16.7 million different hues. Simply select an image of your choosing—from the web, social media or your personal photos—and it will print it out in make-up form, ready to apply.

How it works
Simply download the Mink app, import an image from your phone and choose whether to print the entire image or a single colour to turn into wearable makeup.
Fifteen seconds later, the photo will be printed out on a paper-thin Mink makeup sheet, which you can use directly by dabbing your finger or makeup brush onto the printed colour.
The printed pigments have a shelf life of two weeks when kept covered in its original plastic film, and are produced with only FDA approved ingredients—making it the perfect touch-up kit and travel companion.
