How To Hack Your Home Printer So It Will 3D Print Any Lipstick...


Grace Choi is the founder of Mink, a 3D makeup printing company that wants to teach the world how to stop buying cosmetics and start printing their own in any color.

Choi created a how-to video and provided Business Insider with step-by-step instructions on how to 3D print lipsticks, eye shadows and nail polishes.

Here's what you'll need:

A home printer (Choi recommends an HP 6100 which retails for $70)

A tool like Photoshop, which can pull a hex color from an image online

Refillable ink cartridges

Ink (edible ink/vegetable based ink because they're FDA approved). Choi adds: "Make sure they're compatible with your government's regulations! There is a bit of trial and error here with vendors. You can also custom formulate the inks by starting with the compatible raw pigments/dyes."
