  5. Shut. It. Down. Someone Figured Out How to Make 3D Printable Makeup [VIDEO]

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    Aside from the cool factor of being able to create one's own makeup, inventor Grace Choi cites two main reasons for creating Mink, a desktop printer that can instantly create eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, and more in any shade. One: Getting around the "bullshit" of makeup companies, which charge exorbitant amounts for more out-there colors than the pinks and reds you can find at any drug store. And two: Letting women and teenage girls personally control what beauty means to them by cutting out the toxic beauty standards of the companies that now serve as an unavoidable middleman. We approve of both those things. And holy crap, 3D printable makeup! So cool! (via: TechCrunch) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  8. “History’s Forgotten Women” Get Their Own… Eyeshadow Line?

    Olden Lore

    OK then. This is Ignis Antiquita, a line of 40 eyeshadows “inspired by the amazing, fiery, passionate, strong women who have been largely forgotten in our history books, or had their histories revised due to the fact that they were what they were- WOMEN!” Here are descriptions of all the women included. Before you scoff at the idea of famous women of history being paired with a makeup line—let me say A) there’s nothing wrong with makeup itself, and B) Ignis Antiquita wasn't created by some huge conglomerate seeking to take advantage of the struggles of women to sell some impossible beauty standard, but by independently owned company Aromaleigh. I can only assume founder Kristen Leigh Bell thought “You know what’s cool? Eyeshadow. You know what’s also cool? Historical women!” True on both counts.
