LIP STICK APPARATUS Filed June 27. 1932 MM INVENTOR W Patented Nov. 7, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 5 Claims.
My invention relates to improvements in lip stick apparatus.
One of the objects of my invention is tovprovide novel means for connecting and holding together side by side two lip sticks, so that they may be applied as a unit to the lips.
A further object is to provide a novel lip-stick apparatus which is simple, cheap, strong, durable, not likely to get out of order, and which is attractive in appearance and eflicient in its operation.
The novel features of my invention are hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawing illustrative of my invention,
Fig. 1 is a. side elevation of one form of my improved lip stick apparatus, showing two integrally connected lip sticks mounted in and shown, in solid lines, projecting from the case.
Fig. 2 is a similar view of a modified form in which the lip sticks are separate from each other but held in a slidable, holder common to both.
Fig. 3 is an elevation of the two lip sticks shown in Fig. 1, shown mounted in the holder and removed from the case.
Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3, of the two lip sticks shown in Fig. 2 shown mounted in the holder and removed from the case.
Fig. 5 is a top view of what is shown in Fig. 3.
Fig. 6 is a top view of what is shown in Fig. 4.
Fig. '7 is a section, enlarged, on the line 7-7 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 8 is a section, enlarged, on the line 8-8 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 9 is a perspective of the holder used with both forms of my invention.
Similar characters of reference designate simi lar parts in the different views.
1 designates a case having an open top and closed bottom, having, preferably, the form of two tubes disposed side by side and interiorly communicating at their adjacent sides. 2 designates a member comprising a lip stick holder slidably fitted in the case 1 and provided at one side with a fingerhold 3 which extends through and is slidable in a longitudinal slot 4 provided through the case 1.
The holder member 2 is provided with two arcuate recesses 5 adapted to respectively hold and support the lower ends of two lip sticks 6, Figs. 1, 3, 5 and '7 and to lift the same from a lower position, shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1, in which the lip sticks 6 are concealed in the case 1, to an upper position protruding from the top of the case 1, as shown in solid lines in Fig. 1.
The lip sticks 6 are integrally connected member '7 of material like that of which the lip sticks are composed, and which extends length:
wise between the sticks 6 from below the upper ends thereof. I
The recesses 5 are connected by a groove 8in which the connecting member or portion '7 is disposed. I y
The member '7 securely, holds the lip sticks 6 from lateral tipping relatively to each other in the 'holder 2. As the lip sticks wear away in use, so does the portion '7, when the sticks have become worn down to said portion.
In the form shown in Figs. 2, 4, 6 and 8, the lip sticks 6 are separate from each other and are separately mounted in the recesses 5 of the holder 2. In other respects, the two forms are alike.
As shown in the drawing, Figs. 5, '7 and 9, the fingerhold 3 is threaded at its inner end, and is fitted in a threaded hole in the holder 2, so that it may be removed, when it is desired to remove the holder, or to insert it.
In the operation of both forms of my invention, the holder '2 forms with the lip sticks an integral structure, which when the screw finger hold 3 is removed, can be inserted into or removed from the case 1 as a unit, and with which both lip sticks can be raised as a unit to the same height for application simultaneously to the lips.
When the apparatus is to be used, the fingerhold '3 is employed to lift the holder 2 to the upper operative position in which the lip sticks, 6 or 6, as the case may be, protrude from the upper end of the case 1 to the same horizontal plane transverse to their lengths. which are alike. The two lip sticks can then be applied simultaneously to the lips. after which the holder is lowered in the case. thus carrying the lip sticks to the lower position concealed in the case 1.
In each of the two forms of my invention shown respectively in Figs. 1 and 2, each pair of lip sticks 6 and 6' comprise two portions of like lip stick material and are disposed longitudinally side by side and at their outer ends terminating in the same transverse plane, said two portions at each of two opposite sides forming between them a longitudinal slot the sides of which outwardly diverge in convex arcs; By reason of this divergence in the walls of the slot or channel between the lip stick portions. when the lip stick portions are applied with either of the slotted sides disposed centrally against the upper lip and are then drawn downwardly thereupon, a layer of lip stick material will, in one operation, be deposited in the form of a cupid's bow on the upper lip.
The term slot as Just above used, is employed in its broad sense designating an elongated depression or perforation.
I do not limit my invention to the structures shown and described, as other modifications, within the scope of the appended claims, may be made without departing from'the spirit of my invention.
What I claim is:-
1; In a lip stick apparatus, two lip stick portions of like material disposed longitudinally side by side and having their upper ends terminating in the same plane transverse to their length and at one side forming between them a longitudinal slot the sides of which outwardly diverge, and a connecting member of like material connecting said portions and forming therewith an integral structure.
2. In a lip stick apparatus, a case having an open top, two lip sticks of like material and disposed longitudinally side by side and forming between them at one side a longitudinal slot the sides of which diverge outwardly, means of material like that of which the lip sticks are composed integrally connecting them, and a member supporting said lip sticks and movable in said case from a positionin which said lip sticks will be concealed in the case to aposition pgotmdi therefrom.
3. In a lip stick apparatus, aggc-asel avingwan groove connecting said recesses in which said connecting means is disposed, said holder being slidable in said case from a lower position in which said lip sticks are concealed within said case to an upper position in which said lip sticks will protrude from the top of said case.
4. In a lip stick apparatus, two lip stick portions of like material disposed longitudinally side by side and terminating at one set of ends in the same transverse plane, and at one side forming between them a longitudinal slot the sides of which outwardly diverge in convex arcs, and means for holding said portions in said relative disposition.
5., In a lip stick apparatus, twolip stick portions of like material disposed longitudinally side by side and terminating at one set of .ends in the same transverse plane, and at one side forming between them a longitudinal slot the sides of which outwardly diverge, and means for holding said portions in said relative disposition.
