LIPSTICK Filed May 12, 1938 Les-sl'n KO/e,

gwve/wim Patented June 13, 1939 UNITED STATES PATENT. OFFICE The object of my invention is to provide a lipstick having a novel beveled end to replace the bullet-shaped or wedge-shaped ends of the prior art; and to'provide a lipstick having an end so Y Figure 1 is a side elevation of the lipstick mountedin. a conventional holder;

Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the invention{ Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the lipstick in Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a lipstick rectangular in cross section, as initially formed, incorporating my invention;

Fig. 5 is a'perspective view of'the same lipstick after it has been in use for a period of time;

Fig. -6 is a perspective view of a triangular lipstick incorporating my invention;

Fig. 7 is a view of an elliptical lipstick incorporating my invention;

Fig. 8 is a perspective view of a lipstick square in cross section incorporating my invention; and

Fig. 9 is a view of a slightly ovalized lipstick incorporating my invention.

Like numeralsdesignate like parts in each of the several views.

Referring to the accompanying drawing, there is illustrated a'conventional lipstick holder I having suitable actuating means 2 for the expelling and retracting of the lipstick from the holder. The novel feature of the lipstick is its beveled surface 4 and permanently pointed end or edge portion 5 aligned or substantially aligned with one of the sides 6 of the lipstick in the case. of llpsticks which in cross section are square, rectangular, triangular or elliptical, or the like.

Inapplying the lipstick, the beveled surface 4 is applied to the lips, as shown in Fig. 3, with a sweeping stroke on either lip. It thus makes a quicker and neater application of the lipstick than is possible with the present bullet-shaped and wedge end types of points or end portions.

With the present bullet or wedge-shaped end lipstick in general use the lipstick does not remain pointed but wears down bluntly. When the user applies such a blunt lipstick to the lips, it is diflicult to make a sharp line; in other words, the line of application of the lipstick is Jagged. Many women have thin lips and it is in these cases particularly that a blunt lipstick is difllcult to apply, there being a tendency of the lipstick to come of! on unwanted portions of the lips or,


(CL 132r-1) pointed because it can only be applied to the lips one way, namely, on the beveled surface 4, and this results in the maintenance of the original sharpened edge portion 5. The beveled surface '4 fits the lips or contours of the mouth, which in turn makes it possible to apply the lipstick in a simpler, quicker, and more eillcient and natural manner. It makes a perfect sharpened edge portion of the lipstick very easily follows the natural contour of the lips. 'I'heangle of the beveled portion 4 is such that it readily falls in" with the natural position of the hand and. arm. applies the stick to the inside of the lower lip, the hand is in line with the mirror and thus obstructs the view, and the end of the lipstick gradually grows blunter with use. With my point, this does not occur.

It is within the contemplation of my invention to slightly modify the angle of the bevel but it is required that the beveled surface extend entirely across the lipstick in the same direction, andv that the edge portion be aligned or substantially aligned with the adjacent side surface of the lipstick.

I contemplate applying my invention to any shape of lipstick filler, such as one that in cross section is rectangular, or oval, or square, or triangular,or any other shape.

The holder is not claimed as a part of this invention, and any suitable holder may be employed.

What I claim is:

1. A lipstick having sides disposed at an angle to each other and having a beveled end, the bevel of said beveled portion extending continuously in the same direction across the lipstick and terminating -in a sharp edge extending the entire width of the lipstick, whereby to cause the user to apply the lipstick on the beveled face and thereby keep the edge of the lipstick sharp.

2. A multiple flat sided lipstick having its end beveled continuously in the same direction all the way across and terminating in a sharp edge, substantially aligned with one of the sides of the lipstick to cause the user to apply the lipstick on the-beveled face and thereby to keep the edge of the lipstick sharp.

3. The method ofmaking a lipstick of the type described consisting in continuously beveling the end of a lipstick in the direction of one of its flat sides whereby the meeting point of the beveled portion and of the flat side will form a sharp edge aligned with the flat side of the lipstick to provide a lipstick so shaped that the user will apply it in the same way continuously and thus keep it substantially sharpened.
