2 Claims. (Cl. 21924) The present invention pertains to improvements in eyelash processors.
An object of the invention is to provide a small, compact and readily operable device for imparting a curl to eyelashes and otherwise treating the same.
A further object is to provide a device of the above nature which is free from clamps, pins, hinges and similar working parts.
Another object is to provide a device of the above type adapted to be heated electrically, but wherein the electrical heating unit and the coverings thereof are so proportioned and constructed that danger of injury to the user is eliminated.
Another object is to provide a device of the above type particularly adapted to the application of mascara or the like.
A further object is to provide a device of the above type including an outer sheath of fibrous or matt surfaced material such as chamois skin or the like adapted to act as an efficient receiver and distributor of mascara as the device is rolled along the eye-lashes, the sheath at the same time comprising part of the protective structure noted above.
Other advantages of the device will become apparent during the course of the following description in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 is an exterior view of a preferred form of the invention;
Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same;
Figure 3 is a diagrammatic view illustrating initial application of the device to a users lashes;
Figure 4 illustrates the rolling action along the lashes; and
Figure 5 shows the result at completion of the curling procedure.
Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, the numeral l generally designates a curling device having a hollow cylindrical handle I l of plastic or other suitable insulating material. A grooved ceramic core l2 has a rear stem l3 inserted in the forward end of the handle H. A resistance wire 14, wound on the core l2 to comprise a heating unit, has terminals l and I6 connected to a suitable two-conductor cord I! led through the rear of the handle H and provided with an attachment plug l8.
Surrounding the core 12 and heating coil I4 is a tubular metallic casing l9 secured to the handle II in any suitable manner, herein illustrated as by rolling into a groove 20. A layer 2| of heat resistant electrical insulating material such as mica is interposed between the metallic casing 19 and the describedheating unit.
A closely fitted sheath 2 2 or fibrous 0r mattsurfaced material, preferably chamois-skin, is
secured on the outside of the casing I9 so as to completely envelope the latter.
The resistance and length of the heater wire I4 are so proportioned to the heat-dispersing capacity of the device that when the latter is connected continuously to a current source of suitable standard voltage, the exterior surface of the sheath 22 is maintained at a temperature high enough to set mascara or similar lash pomade, but insufliciently high to burn the user if brought into contact with the eye-lid or fingers.
A typical operation is as follows:
Mascara is placed on the upper lashes 23, Fig. 3, and the heated sheath 22 is brought against the lower surfaces and rolled upward, bending the lashes upward as shown in Fig. 4. The fibrous surface of the sheath 22 catches and retains excess mascara, while rolling an even film thereof on the convex surface of the lashes, this film at the same time being quickly set or hardened by the heat transmitted thereto. Since the setting takes place while the lashes are bent upward the upward curl is retained when the device has been rolled clear of the ends of the lashes 23 as shown in Figure 5.
It will be obvious that the foregoing operation may be repeated to give any desired degree of curl. The lower lashes may be curled similarly, the device of course being rolled downward over them instead of upward.
If desired, an artificial elongation of the lashes may be accomplished by repeatedly applying mascara to the outer ends of the lashes and rolling the device outward over them. In this manner each rolling leaves an additional short length of set mascara extending from the end of the lash or previously applied mascara, the resultant artificial extension being built up to any desired length.
From the foregoing it will be evident that the device provides a quick, easy and highly effective method of treating the lashes without any of the complications or hazards entailed by devices employing clamps or high heat. The chamois sheath 22, as noted, performs the double function of a protective cover at the same time providing an ideal surface for processing the mascara under the mild degree of heat automatically ensured by the proper proportioning of the heating element. The sheath 22 may conveniently be secured in place by a small snap 3 ring 24, Figs. 1 and 2, so that if by long use and repeated cleaning the sheath becomes worn, it may be readily replaced.
While the invention has been described in preferred form it is not limited to the precise embodiment illustrated, as obviously various changes and modifications may be made without departing from the scope of the appended claims.
What is claimed is:
1. In an eye-lash curler, in combination, a handle of non-conducting material, a cylindrical metallic casing attached to said handle and forming a linear extension thereof, a ceramic core within said casing, an electrical resistance wire wound on said core, means extending through said handle to connect said wire to a source of current, an insulating sheath interposed between said wound resistance wire and said casing, and a sheath of chamois-skin closely enveloping said cas n the outer diame ers of sa d she h an han b n sub nt ally equalg.
