Mink 3D Makeup Printer by Grace Choi

Mink 3D Makeup PrinterThis is exciting. A desktop printer that prints actual makeup? Hello, Mink. Mink is a 3D makeup printer that turns any color you see into a cosmetic. Snap a photo with your phone or select a color from a website like Pinterest and turn that into your own custom colored makeup. Mink is said to be able to print eyeshadow, lip gloss, blush and any other type of makeup you desire.

We all love instant gratification and variety – and that’s the role Mink plays: instant makeup in any color you can imagine.

Although I don’t know about the quality of makeup that Mink will print, I’m very excited for this ingenious product by founder Grace Choi to hit the market. The plan is for Mink to launch late this year at a $200-$300 price range.

I’m already imagining finding a gorgeous bright purple color online and turning that into my perfect eyeshadow. I’m going to assume this will only print mattes, but who knows. We’ll have to wait and see.

  1. To be quite honest, I’m a bit on the fence about this product. Sure, you can print any color you want because the RGB is the same for all colors; however, what about the quality of the mediums in which you are printing? Won’t that also affect the consumer’s budget just like it would coming from Sephora, Ulta, Walmart or any other retailer?
    When I buy makeup, it’s not just color I am looking for. I’m also looking at the finish, quality, raw materials, etc. Also, the lack of a female on the panel to question the product further sort of bothered me. Unless they are drag queens or makeup artists, men tend to not know much about makeup…
    Am I wrong or being mean for thinking this way?

      No – you are not mean for thinking that way. I’m excited for the possibility of this product, but the quality and consistency are still unknown. What components will be used? How can it print lipstick and powder? At this point it’s just a wait-and-see game.
