According to a further feature of the present Referring now to the drawings in greater demvention a iing member of the lip stick cartail, it will be seen that number I is a casing rier engages in the position of rest of the mirfor the lip stick which encloses the coloured ror a tongue-shaped holding member of the pencil or lip stick 2. The mirror 3 is hinged to mirror and by rotation is clamped on this holdthe closed end face 6 of the casing l by means ing tongue by means of a wedge surface To of a spring-acted hinge 5. As shown in Fig 6 t is end, the ring member of the lip stick care mirror 3 is locked in its non-operative pori'er may possess on its inner side a plurality sition by a locking member 8 The mirror suiof wedge-shaped projections in such a manner face in this case faces the sleeve I Advanthat the highest wedge point of one of the protageously the outwardly facinr surface (i e the Jections follows the lowest wedge point of the ack side) of the mirror may be provided with next proiection Advantageously the highest a monogram or with ornaments or similar deand lowest Wedge points of the ring member of signs It will be seen that the spring-acted t e lip stick carrier pass over into each other hinge 5 is positioned approximately in the midin the form of waves. dle of the end face t, the mirror being provided Since the lip stick carrier which is usually a at the movable hinge `part 1 at right angles theresleeve, must be removable from the casing in an to. axial direction for using the lip stick the danger In order to use the lip stick or the like, the exists that the lip stick may be ieleased undecasing I is seized by the left hand and the sirably from its closed position and even slip out coloured pencil 2 is drawn out of the casing I o the casing if it is not locked in the closed Thus disengaged and lthe mirror 3 swings into its operative position.

It will be seen .that the bar lis 'surrounded :in its nonoperativeposition by acontainer 1. The bar can be moved longitudinally in a sleeve Il, as by screwing, in a manner known per se, by means of its socket I0. It can :thus `'be .moved out of the sleeve Il according as lit'isused up, the sleeve il formed with a ring member 4 serving as a holder and overhanging thecontainer l for some length in the closedipo'sition.

The mirror 3 which maybe "'xedinasuitable frame It, is hingedly mounted to the end wall 6 of the container l by fmeans'of .thehinge disposed in the middle of the end wall 6. Connected to the hinge part 1 at "right'angles thereto is the frame l2 bearing the mirror'3.

At its opposite end the mirror 3 or fits -frame l2 is provided with a tongue-shaped-retaining member .e vadapted to :be engaged by the .ring member 4, if the latter is .put .on .thecontainer I. ln order to prevent the .ring member .A 4from slipping off in an axial direction, vthe inner ring I3 oi the ring member is provided with wedgeshaped surfaces I of Fig. 3 which according to Fig. 4 may be arrangedin suchamannerthat the highest point Iii of one conicalsurface is followed by the lowest point L6 of the next conical surface.

.lf after use of the lip Stick or the ylike the sleeve il is again put intothe container l, this is effected in such away that the tongue -8 -iS located in the zone of the lowest .point vl-B 0f the wedge surface. lf the ring :member A is now turned in the directionof arrow .X -with the sleeve il therewithin, the .holding tongue 8 is clamped between the walltof the .container l and the wedge surface, i. e. in the .vicinity of the highest points thereof. Therefore, the .ring member i is prevented from undesirable-movement in the directionof arrow Y..

As indicated in Fig. 3, the wedge-shaped clamping surfaces lil of thering memberd can also be arranged in such a way that thehighest wedge points il and the lowest wedge points I8 pass over into each other y1n the formof waves. This design offers the advantage-that the ring member i can be clamped on theholding tongue 8, no matter whether the .rotationtakes place in the direction of arrow X or in the direction of arrow Z. Accordingly .the user .of the lip stick need not pay any special attention tothe direction of rotationrequiredfor achieving vthe clamping action.

While the invention hasibeen-described-indetail with respect to certainpresentlypreferred examples and embodiments .ofthe invention Vit will be understood by those skilled :in vtheart after understanding the invention, that various changes and modifications fmay -be made without departing from thespirit andscope .of the invention yand it is intended, therefore, vto cover all such changes and modicationsin the appended claims.
