Adorn, Portable 3D Makeup Printing Pen
UK based company developed Adorn, the world’s first 3D makeup pen that 3D prints foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly.
The portable and lightweight pen pre-loaded with a mix of blue, black and white pigments creates the perfect shade of foundation that matches your skin by using a built in scanner and color mixing mechanism. The scanner when placed against your face, scans your skin pigments in darkness. The pen detects a perfect shade matching your complexion, blends it in the cylinder of the pen and prints it out in small amount onto your fingertips.
“Foundation is made up of blue, black, and white pigmentation. The shades you see in department stores, makeup emporiums, and pharmacies are mixed with different color ratios. Adorn expands on this process through cutting edge technology and the advancements of science.” said an Adorn spokesperson.
The company claims that the printer operated by a rechargeable battery is capable of printing over 75,000 shades of different skin shades. The easy to refill foundation cartridge suitable for any skin type is available for only $20. The sleek waterproof printing pen is available in wide range of colors for $139, a discount of 50% for limited time on Adorn’s website.
“They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We like to think it’s in one clever pen,” said the spokesperson. “No longer will ladies have to settle for coverage that’s too light or dark. With Adorn, they can print catwalk worthy coverage, at the touch of a button. 3D printing has transformed the global manufacturing industry and now, Adorn is bringing the cutting edge technology to the modern beauty sector.”
