This, applicationv July This invention relates tie new and useier im vem s i a l P ti KeParQ- This-a p ication is a refile of my originalapplication, filed 'over the head. 10 These lipstick guards will be of exceptional value to retail stores sincevery often light colored garments are marred by prospective purchasers trying them on, and accidentally having portions of the garment'come in contactlwith Another object-of, the invention is to-construct H the stiff sheet element to conform with the shape of ones lips.
Still further the invention proposes alipstick 30 guard in which the stiff sheet element is suffi ciently flexible to conform with the curvature of ones lips and in which theinouth member is releasably mountedon the sheet element 'so-that the parts may be separated during transit and 35 storage. It is then possible to place the two small a parts in small envelopes and supplythem to:v users as required. They are then assembled and are ready for use. g r
Still further the invention proposes to arrange the mouth member with a curved edge and to provide the holding 'means cooperative with the sheet member in a manner to force the sheet member against the curved edge and so produce 7 the curvature necessary to fit ones lips.
- and ofthe objects and advantages thereof, refer- 50 claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more'particularlyset forth.
terial part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of. a lipstick guard I 55 constructed according to this invention.
, Fig. .3. is'a,transverse sectional view taken on The invention has for an object the construc- 7 tion of a guard which is particularly intended to:
' protect the lipstick on ones lips when trying on' dresses and other garments which are. slipped 'ones lips.
For further comprehension of the. invention,
isa plan view of Fig. 1.
thejline L3. 3 :of Fig. 2 and'showing the guard on a persons lips.
Fig'l' il'is a perspective view similar to Fig. 1 5 but illustrating a modification of the invention.
Fig. 5 isa rear elevational view of a lipstick guard constructed'according 'to a modification of the invention.
. Fig. 6;-is a plan view of Fig. 5. v 10 The lipstick guard according to this invention comprises a stiff sheet element Ill for'extending over ones lips and a mouth member ll attached tothe rear face of the element for engaging between ones teeth to hold the element over the lips. ,The stiff element 10 is curved as shown in plan view (see Fig. 2) so as to conform with the curvature of ones face at the lip area. The mouth member H preferably should be of metal, Celluloid, vorstiff plastic material. The covering element Himay be of similar materials.
In. Fig;'4 a modification of the invention has I been disclosed in lwhlch the sheet element H! has its edges curved to conform with the shape of The mouth member H is also provided with a band I! whichmay be of padding material soasnot to hurt ones teeth. It maybe a rubber band or cloth band, preferably suitably treated so as not to have an offensive taste.
I In Figs. 5and 6 another modification'of the invention has been disclosed in whichthe lipstick curvature of the edge Id. In Fig.6 the dot and dash lines show thenormal condition of the sheet I element I 0 The full lines show it held against the curved side 14. There are several headed studs l5 mounted upon ,the curved side I 4 and 40 cooperative with bayonetslots I 6 formed in the 7 sheet element lfl for holding the parts together.
These bayonet slots l6 are arranged upon the circumference of; a theoretical circle so that it is possible to :turn the mouth member lo on a theoretical center to disengage the parts.
- When the sheet element 10 is flat and the mouth member Il 'is disconnected from it'th'ey may be packed in .small envelopes or other flat packaging material. It is onlywhen they are to V be used that they are assembled. In the accompanying drawing forming'a ma- While Ihave'illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the q t ening elements comprise bayonet openings in said flat sheet element and saidfaste-ning elementscompriseheaded studs which are adapted right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as de fined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desireto secure by United States Letters Patent is:
1. A lipstick guard, comprising a flat flexible sheet element for extending over ones lips, a
mouth member'having a curvedcuter end, and
means on the edge portion of said curved outer end which is adapted to engage said flatsheet and draw it against said curved outer end to curve said fiat sheet so that it will conform with the contour of ones lips when said mouth member is inserted into ones mouth, said means, comprising fastening elements on the edge portion "of said curved outer end which are adapted to engage complementary fastening elements on said fiat flexible sheet element, said complementary fasto engage said openings to fixedly hold said mouth member in position on said flat sheet element.
' gage complementary fastening elements on said flat flexible sheet element, said complementary fastening elements comprise bayonet openings in said fiat sheet element and said fastening ele= ments comprise headed studs which are adapted to engage said openings to fixedly hold said mouth member in position on said fiat sheet element, said bayonet openings being oppositely arranged on the circumference of a theoretical circle so that itis possible to turn themouth member on a theoretical circle to engage'and disengage the headed studs in the openings.
