If you’re a female then you know the troubles you have to go through for getting just the right foundation shade. The shade of foundation serves as the base and thus, is quite critical to your overall look.

Adorn 3D makeup pen is a scanner and a 3D printer that uses sensors to accurately scan and match the precise color of the user’s skin disregarding the ethnicity and stone tone. It can also work in total darkness, talk about benefits!

An Adorn spokesperson said:

“They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We like to say it’s in one clever pen. 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.”

As per the company’s website, the gadget is accurate up to a point where you won’t be able to tell the difference. Adorn 3D makeup pen scans the user’s face and matches the shade with more than 75,000 tones in its database. After the scan has been completed, the gadget sounds a beep to alert the user. Subsequently, the pen prints out the foundation of the exact same color using its pre-filled foundation cartridge that can be refilled for under $20.


The conventional foundation is made by blending blue, white and black pigmentation. However, Adorn claims that it can tap into the infinite spectrum of shades located within these colors. The foundation is comprised of anti-wrinkle peptide Matrixyl 3000, Litchiderm, sodium hyaluronate along with green tea and other ingredients. It is also free of sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrances, and Triclosan.

The ‘skin-smart’ blend of this particular foundation has been designed to suit all kinds of skin; dry, oily and combination. The pen can be used for dealing with the slight variation in skin tone due to changing seasons and sun exposure. The gadget is powered by the rechargeable batteries that have been designed to last for a couple of weeks per charge – however, it is stringent upon usage frequency.

The pen comes with a price tag of $279 but is available from the official Adorn 3D site for $139 for a limited time. It is being offered in five colors; cherry, gold, pink, red, space grey and black.
