Grace Choi the CEO and co-funder of Mink had first shown her innovative product back in 2014 at the TechCrunch Disrupt New York technology conference. The company and herself have been working ever since to create a fully workable 3D make-up printer.
These are the claims of the brand regarding this product:
Ultra Portable – 2.2 lbs and 8” x 6” x 4”. Travel and store with ease.
Although 3D printing your make-up might seem like one tech addition too many, the entire process is actually extremely simple.
But its it really a necessity?
I think you don’t really need to have access to 16.7 million colors to be honest. Most women or men who use make up have their favorite color scheme, a favorite lipstick or even favorite consistency of a product. When one thing can do it all, then it is not really concentrating on any genre in particular.The actual performance of the eye-shadows is really poor. They lack pigmentation and are hard to blend. If it worked as well as they claim is does, the whole beauty industry would have already gone down and/or bankrupt. Nonetheless it is a revolutionary product and if they refine the concept a little more I think it would actually be a hit.
If you want to try it for yourself then the price of Mink is $295. As of now, only shipments within the U.S. will be made and delivered during the fall of 2020.
