Harvard grad Grace Choi wants to change all that for us. She wants to make makeup easily accessible, like make it at home easy. And I don't mean a Youtube tutorial on lipstick DIY. No, she's making it so we can print it at home with the use of a 3D printer. Too good to be true? Quite possibly but not impossible.
To have the lipstick or blush color of our choice at our fingertips sounds amazing and convenient. Every makeup addict's dream come true.
But at the risk of sounding old fashion, there's nothing better than going to the makeup counters and playing in all the products, having the cool chic at MAC make me over. Or the sweethearts at Sephora that hook me up with all the cool samples before I leave.
Ms. Choi is a genius with an idea and dream of helping young woman. I'm definitely not gonna knock her for that. As a matter of fact I like her ambition and reasoning for wanting to create printed makeup. But if her target market is 13-21 year old women shouldn't the product be easier to obtain? After all $300 is a pretty hefty price tag for something thats supposed to make life easier. Than again we do pay the price when it comes to convenience.
