Harvard Business School graduate Grace Choi has formed a company named Mink that is developing a makeup printer. The printer can take any image and print a color from the image as a wearable cosmetic. The makeup printer uses cosmetic grade ink to die a powder substrate. It takes a few seconds to print makeup. Time quotes Grace as saying, "We're going to live in a world where you can take a picture of your friend's lipstick and print it out."

Grace says the printer will initially cost around $300 when it comes. There will be an additional cost for the ink and powder substrate. She says this is a little higher than she would like it to cost because it is a new product. If the printer went mass market it could cost less. She is targeting teens and young women with the product. Take a look:
