Smashbox promises that this is "only the beginning" of 3D-printed makeup, so real talk: the future is now.

If you're still mystified by 3D printing, trust us, we're right there with you. In simplest terms, it's basically printing in layers of a certain material, each one stacking upon the last, to create a 3D object. What gives it an edge over other types of production is that it makes individual customization a million times easier and less costly. In other words, 3D hair extensions and signature compacts are just the beginning.

You can play the #BeLegendary Lipstick Matching Game up until October 12 and redeem your custom lipstick compact through October 31.
