Every so often an invention comes along that BLOWS our minds. Harvard graduate Grace Choi has invented a 3D printer that can make lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushers and more. It means we can simply press print to have the makeup palettes of our dreams. Somebody give this woman an OBE already!

Our guess? Havard grad and serial inventor, Grace Choi is set to be your favourite person in the next few months. The woman has created MINK. A 3D printer that allows you to have print ANY shade of make-up from your phone, your laptop or your camera. It sounds massively futuristic, but the time has come to take DIY makeup er, making, into our homes once and for all.

Beauty brands could end up finding it hard to compete with MINK which allows users a cheaper, instant option to have the makeup shades they want, at the touch of a button. No waiting, or spending required.

We've been watching her presentation at the TechCrunch Disrupt NY conference in absolute awe. Check it out.

The MINK printer is going to retail for around $300 when it launches. We've already signed up. Have you?
