Adorn is a handheld makeup pen that can scan and print over 75,000 shades of foundation on-demand.
Few women have the same skin tone all year round. Often, they will buy makeup that matches their skin color in winter only to find its too light after their summer holiday. Offering to solve this age-old problem is — the latest addition to the 3D printed makeup market.
We have already seen MODA — a digital makeup artist that combines facial-scanning and 3D printing, professing to be able to replicate the latest celebrity look in 30 seconds. Offering a more modest, but more consumer-friendly service, Adorn is a handheld makeup pen that can scan and print over 75,000 shades of foundation on demand.
To begin, users scan their skin with the inbuilt sensor, and the device will process the color and blend the perfect foundation within the cylinder of the pen. Then, the user simply ‘prints’ the liquid foundation and applies it to their skin.
Adorn is currently available to preorder for USD 139. Could other makeup products use a similar process — perhaps lipsticks that can replicate any color the user wants?
