Application May 26, 1948, Serial No. 29,220
This invention relates to rouge applicator for applying rouge to the lips of a person and concerns itself with a device having a rouge applicating element to which fluid or plastic rouge can be fed when it is desired to use the device.
It is an object of this invention to utilize the compressive force of a collapsible container to supply the desired plastic rouge to a lip rouge ap-s plicating element when the container is housed in a cylindrical casing.
It is a further object of this invention to control the feeding of the rouge in accordance with the position of parts to limit the feeding of rouge to such times as when it is desired to use the device.
The invention comprises the novel structure and combination of parts hereinafter described and more particularly pointed out and defined in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawing which illustrates a preferred form of this invention and in which similar reference numerals refer to similar features in the different views:

Fig. 6 is a further sectional View of a modied form of a feature of this invention,
Fig. 7 is an elevational view of an element in unassembled relation,
Fig. 8 is an elevational view of a feature of this invention,
Fig. 9 is an elevational view of a trigger involv ing a part of this invention, in unassembled relation, and
Fig. l0 is a sectional view similar to Fig. 2, but illustrating a modified form of container support.
T n referring now to the drawing whichrillustrates a preferred form of this invention, there is shown a casing comprising a main section I0 and a transparent cover section II which telescopes over the main section. A collapsible container I2 which may be a rubber bag or closed tube or the like is supported in the main section I6 of the casing. To support and compress the container I2, there is provided a spring plate member I3 having an upturned lower end |305 extending obliquely to the vertical portion thereof. Upon the inner side of the vertical portion, there'is secured a spring plate I 4 at its upper end with the lower portion deected away from the main portion and toward the upturned end I3a.
With reference to Fig. 1 it will be noted that the flexible container I2 vis seated between the upturned flange I3a and the spring plate I4. The spring plate I4 may be of any suitable form; in the present instance, it is shown yas of a single thickness where it is attached to the member I3 as indicated at I5 and of a double thickness therebelow. In order to compress the container, there is provided a trigger IIB which is mounted in a slot I'I in the main casing member I0 upon a split ring I8 which extends across the casing It and into a groove I9 formed in the interior wall of the casing. This ring forms the fulcrum upon which the trigger moves. By pushing the trigger inwardly with the hand, the yielding support I3 will be deflected inwardly and exertpressure against the spring I4 and cause a compression of the flexible container I2 for forcing plastic rouge therefrom. The trigger I-I is provided y the container will be forced upwardly against av rouge applicating element 22 which may be in the form of aball or the like. The element 22 is mounted in a transparent housing 23 having a reduced portion 24 at its lower end provided with a groove 25. The eXible container I2 which is shown as a long flexible bag with an open upper e'iid is telescoped over the reduced portion 24 and secured by a circular fastener 26 located over the groove 25.
. The housing is provided with a cylindrical bore 21 in its upper end portion in which a sleeve or mounting 28 is secured. The rouge applicating` element 22 which is in the form of a ball is yieldingly lsupported in this mounting which has a ball conning lip 29 upon its upper edge for limiting the outward movement of the ball. The
ball 22 is seated upon the upper end of a coil spring 30 within the mounting 28. 'I'he spring 30 is supported atits lower end upon a sheet metal disk 3I which is star shaped and has a hollow stud 32 punched upwardly from the center thereof as shown in Fig. 7. This hollow stud 32 forms a guide for the spring 30 and the upper end of the stud acts as a stop for the ball 22 during its downward movement and the interior of the stud forms a passage for rouge.
The housing 23 has an enlarged cylindrical chamber 33 below the bore 21. The star-shaped disk 3l nts within this chamber and may be secured by a drive nt or otherwise; the star-shape provides passages for rouge therethrough in addition to the passage 34 provided by the extruded stud 32.
In Fig. 5, there is shown a modified form of mounting 35 for the ball 22. This mounting 35 is similar to the mounting 28 except that it omits the disk 3i and supports the Spring 30 upon an inturned lip or ledge 36 upon the lower end of the mounting. With this construction, it is only necessary to secure the mounting 35 in the bore 21. The rouge/will pass thruthe spring and into contact with the ball.
In Fig. 6, there is shown a further modied form of mounting 31 Ifor the applicating element 22. This mounting is similar to the mounting 35 except that it omits the retaining lip 36 and employs instead a disk 3Ia with a hollow stud 32a similar to the disk 3| but of smaller dimensions. In this Vform, the disk 3Ia is of such a size as to t within the cylindrical passage thru the mounting. It is secured in the lower end of the passage with the stud 32a projecting upwardly to form a guide for the spring 30a. The top of the stud 32a also forms a stop for limiting the inward movement of the ball 22 and its interior also provides a passage for the rouge in addition to the passages provided by the disk 3Ia. In
` this form, the mounting 31, can also be assembled as a unit.
The mountings 21, 35 and 31 may be made of transparent material so that a person looking thru the transparent cover II and the transparent housing 23 can observe the conditioner the rouge in the mountings and in position to be supplied to the applicating element 22.
In the present construction, the bag container Ycan be lled with rouge and readily attached to the housing 23 or a container can be readily removed and refilled or replaced by a new container; the condition of the rouge being observable thru the transparent parts.
When the device is not in use and the trans- .parent cover I I is in place, the trigger IS is locked against movement thru the notch 2li. In
, using the device, the cover II should be removed and telescoped over the lower end of the casing I0 and over the outer surface of the trigger which as a pivot upon the bottom of the casing member IB. It will be noted that the upright portion 38a extends obliquely in an outward direction from the foot 39 thus forming a wedge-like space with the opposite wall portion of the casing member. The container I2 is positioned in this space and as the upright portion 38a is pressed against the container, it will force rouge upwardly from the lowest part of the container to the end that the ,4 container can be more completely emptied when in use.
By operating the trigger by hand or by the cover I I as shown in Figs. 2 and 10, viscous rouge will be forced against the ball 22. As the ball is `applied to the lips, the pressure resulting will force the ball inwardly and allow rouge to escape, but the inward movement of the ball will be limited by the stop stud 32 or 32a. After a rouging operation, the cover II may be removed from the bottom and applied over the top of the main casing member.
It will be appreciated that the applicator is susceptible of handling rouge of varying viscosity since the pressure on the container can be increased or decreased thru the extent to which the cover is telescoped over the bottom of the casing. As the cover II, the housings 23 and the mountings 21, 35 and 31 are transparent, it will be possible to observe the feeding action of the rouge.
I am aware that many changes may be made and various details of construction may be modifled without departing from the principles of this invention, so I do not propose limiting the patent granted otherwise than necessitated by the appended claims.
