(Scroll down for video) For those consumers who are unable to find the perfect makeup, a new 3D printer will allow them to create their own perfect cosmetics.

The printer was created by a Harvard Business School student.

The printer can create makeup, blush, eye shadow or lip gloss at home. Grace Choi showed off her Mink 3D printer at the TechCrunch Disrupt in New York.

The printer allows users to select the colors they want and then print it using software. Most makeup comes from the same basic ingredients and the printer helps consumers create colors that are not available at their local pharmacy.

The company said that it is targeting the 13 to 21 demographic, who are less entrenched in their habits with certain brands and retailers. Mink will sell for less than $200 and will be released later this year.
