'6 Claims. (Cl. 206-56 This invention relates to lipstick holders and more particularly to a lipstick holder adapted to be actuated by a button on the exterior of the holder, the action of which is entirely automatic 6 to both raise the cover and expel the lipstick.
It is a further object of the present invention to generally improve the construction of lipstick' holders and reduce the handling ofthe lipstick to a minimum, and other objects will appear in.the course of the following description.
A structure embodying the invention is illustrated in the. accompanying drawings and will be hereinafter fully described, the invention residing in certain novel features which will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the drawings:

Figure 8 is a cross section on the line 8-8 of Fig. 4, looking in the direction of the arrows; V Figure 9 is a perspective view of the outer casing of the lipstick holder showing-the cover in place; U
Figure 10 is a perspective view of the cap raising sleeve, a part thereof being broken away to more clearly illustrate the construction;
Figure 11 is a perspective view of the lipstick retainer.
Referring to the accompanying drawings,in which like numerals indicate like parts throughout the several views, the lipstick holder has an outer casing or container i5 having a closed inner end and an open outer end and provided with a longitudinal slot [6 running axially of ,the casing, and a peripheral bead l8 at the outer edge of the casing and running throughout the circumference parallel to he ou edg the interior of the bead forming a groove 200a the inside of the container. l5.v
In thefollowing description, when the term inner or outer. end of any member is referred to, it shall be used to designate that end when 5 in normal position in the casing 15 adjacent the inner closed end or the outer open end of the casing.
A cap 22 comprises a closure having an inturned peripheraledge 23, one part of the edge 10 23 being extended and bent back into the cap as shown at 25 to provide a guide which enables a cap raising member to lift the cap off the openend of the casing. The cap is hingedly con-- nected to an annular spring 2'! andhas a helical 15 spring 28 constantly urging the cap into closed position on the casing I5.
Both the container 15- and the cap 22 may be plated with gold, silver, chromium or like lustrous material or may be formed of enamel to an increase the attractiveness of the article.
A cover raising sleeve,- generally designated 30, is mounted for axial movement in the casing 15 and comprises a cylindrical member rolled from apiece of resilient sheet metal with the. 25 ends of the rolled portion 8! and 32 spaced slightly apart and adapted to permit radial expansion of the member 30 for a purpose hereinafter set forth. The outer portion of the sleeve 31! is cut away for part of the circumference as 30 shown at 35, the cut away portion 35 fitting within the container l5 adjacent the hinge to preclude the possibility of the sleeve-30 catching beneath the hinge 21 or the spring 28 and preventing movement of the sleeve 30 outwardly.
A slot 38 is'provided in the sleeve running axially therein at apoint diametrically'opposite the ends 3| and 32. The slot 38 is adapted to register with the slot It in the outer shell IE but may be considerably shorter due to the move- 40 ment of the sleeve 30. A circumferential slot 40 is likewise provided in the wall of the sleeve an spaced from the outer end thereof which is adapted, to be engaged by an end 42 of the spring 2] to yield- 45 ably prevent movement of the cylindrical member 30 therepast when-the end}! is engaged with the slot. The slot so is spaced in from the outer edge ofwthe sleeve 30 to stop the movement of the sleeve at a point when these.
cover, 22' is fully open.
A lipstick retainer, generally designated 65, comprises a cylindrical member 46 having an instruck bead 48 adjacent theouter edge the'reof and provided with a plurality of tongs for 55 member 21 and mounting the lipstick retainer within the sleeve 30 with the port54 aligned with the slot as and with the beads 52 beneath the lower edge of the cylindrical sleeve 30. The assembled members 30 and 45 may then be readily inserted into the interior of the casing l5 in such a position .that the slot is aligned with the slot l6 in the casing I5.. The pin 51 may then be inserted through the aligned slots I6 and 38 and into the port 54 where it may be retained by any suitable method, such for example, as riveting. The' pin may then be used to retract both members 30 and 45 into the lower part of the lipstick holder and the cover closed automatically as the sleeve 30 drops below the level of the cover.
A lipstick GB maythen be inserted in the retainer 45 and held therein by the bead '48..
Operation The operation of the lipstick holder is best seen by referring to the various figures. Referring first to Figs. 2 and 7, it willbe seen that with the lipstick in retracted position, and the cover closed over the entire container, the beads 52 lie below the inner end cthe shell 30 and that the outer end of the shell 30 projects beyond the circumferential spring 21. Propelling the-button 51 towards the cap 22 causes the beads 52 to grip the end of the sleeve 30 and expel both the sleeve 30 and the lipstick retainer 45 together with the lipstick 50, the sleeve 30 engaging the member 25 on the cover 22 to open the cover in advance of the sleeve.
When the sleeve 30 and the retainer 45 have ,moved out sufliciently for the sleeve to have completely opened the cover 22, the end 42 of the circumferential spring 21 engages in the slot 40 in the shell 30 and arrests movement of the shell, the slot 40 being spaced sufiiciently inwardly from the outer end of the shell that the shell has succeeded in raising the cap-22 At this point shown in Figs. 3 and 8, the
shell 30 ceases its outward movement and the beads 52 contract within the interior of 'the shell to start .the lipstick moving out of .the shell 30. The pressure of the fingers 50 on the beads 52 expands the shell 30 into gripping engagement with the .casing l5 so as to prevent further movement of-the shelL. This condition persists until such a time as the lipstick is entirely retracted within the shell 30- and the beads 53 have become positioned about the inner end of the shell 30.. The button 51 at this point contacts theinnerend of the slot 38 and. pulls the shell 30, out of engagement with the end of the spring 42 and retracts the shell into the casing.
It will be noted that the sleeve- 30 moves in v advance of the lipstick 60 to open the cover 22 and that it maintainsthe cover open until the. lipstick; is entirely retracted within the sleeve 30, thus precluding .the lipstick from coming. in contact with the. Cover during its normal movement.
.flngers 50 having outstruck beads 52 on the in- Having thus described the invention, it is realized that it is susceptible to various changes and modifications coming wellwithin the scope of one skilled in the art and it is not, therefore, desired to limit the invention to the precise form herein shown and described, but only by the scope of the appended claims.
