3D printed personalized lipstick is ultra personalized

Researchers at the UK’s Cosmetic Science Group at London College of Fashion have been exploring the use of additive manufacturing for a whole new industry and application: makeup. In a newly-published study in the Journal of Dermatology and Cosmetology, they describe the use of 3D printing to produce personalized lipstick. The work involves both 3D-scanning and 3D-printing technology to produce a lipstick applicator which perfectly matches the lips of the wearer, meaning perfect applications and no more mirrors necessary to apply it. The first step involves obtaining a high-quality scan of an individual’s lips in order to get a digital image.
