, a (cl. its-19) This invention relates generally to cosmetology,

and more particularly to lip rouge, mascara. eye

shadow and other cosmetic-preparations.

An object of the invention is to provide a device structurally characterized in an extremely novel and ingenious manner enabling a cosmetic or other preparation to be directly applied to thepart to be treated, without smearing or waste of lated to accurately apply the rouge-but must be supplemented by the fingers as a highly inemcient and messy substitute to spread and shape a dab v oi'the rouge on the lips.

Another object of the invention is to provide a Fla 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1 and showing the open position of the device; 1

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on thelinet-IofFiLl: g

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of. a modified form of cosmetic device embodying the invention, and showing the closed position of the device; l

Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4 and showing the open position 0! the device;

Figs. 6 and 'l are transverse sectional views taken, respectively, on the lines H and 1-4 oi Fig. 5.

Referring specifically to the drawings, and particularly to Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, the invention comprises an elongated receptacle Ill having a cylindrical bore Ii reduced slightly in tiiameter cosmetic device of the above described character embodying a novel iorm of applicator; which. in its operative association with a cosmetic stick or body provides an'extremely desirable and com I pact unitary structure, and enables a thin film oi the cosmetic to be removed from the body thereof automatically by the applicator when.

manipulated with respect to the cosmetic body in a predetermined manner, all while precluding any messy or inaccurate distribution of the cosmetic irom the applicator, and utilizing the entire body of cosmetic economically andwithout waste.

' der l3.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cosmetic device wherein the aiorestated applicator operates when manipulated with respect to the cosmetic body, to eiiectively mill the crystalline structure of the body so as to actually increase its fineness and thus improve its quality.

Still another object o! the invention is to provide a cosmetic device wherein the receptacle or holder for the cosmetic body and the applicator torm'a permanent unit, with which the cosmetic body is removabiy associated in the manner 01' a refill cartridge, and is adapted to be acted upon by the applicator until the body is completely use With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in the combinations, arrangements, andiunctional relationships of elements as set iorth in the following specification and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of one form 0! cosmetic device embodying the invention, and showing the closed position of the device;

adjacent one end as indicated at I: to form an 7 annular stop shoulder I! for a cosmetic holder II in the form of a metallic, cylindrical refill cartridge loosely fitting the bore II and having a flange I! atone end adapted to abut the shoula removable plug I! screwed at II into the other end oi the bore so as to co-act with the flange I! in urging the holder outwardly of the bore to the extreme position shown in Fig. 2' and limited by the shoulder II. 4

The receptacle is provided'at one end with a collar 2| threaded'externallyior engagement by internal threadsoi a closure 22 in the form of a streamlined cap to which is fixed an applicator a composed 01 a stem rigidly secured in a socket II in the applicator, and a head 26 of an external diameter to have a relatively close fit in the holder II for a purpose to be later de- The head '28 can be of a soft material, such as a soft wood, and is oi a generally conical form as indicated at 21 so as to taper at an angle such asto be mostoonveniently applied to the lips, it being found in practice'that an included angle of approiimately sixty degrees is very satisfactory in enabling cosmetic to be accurately and artistically applied to the lips.

The bottom end 28 of the holder It is oi generally conical form complementary to the conical portion Il oi the applicator head It for co-action .therewithin amanner to be describedin the operation-of the invention. which is as follows:

Let it be assumed that the closure 22 is applied to the receptacle II as shown in Fig. 1,

' from which it will be seen that the applicator the closure 22 from the receptacle, the head will have a rotary wiping action upon the cosmetic so that milling of the latter-will be efiected, with an increase in the fineness of the crystalline structure of sucha preparation, and hence an improvement in the quality thereof.

'fhis wiping action due to the rotation of the head in unscrewing the closure 22 will also insure that a relatively thin film of the cosmetic has been transferred to the head. The relatively close fit of the head in the holder H prevents any excess quantity of cosmetic being transferred to the head so as to obviate waste of the cosmetic and permit the latter to be artistically applied to the lips in a relatively thin film so as not to destroy the natural appearance of the lips. As the cosmetic is contained wholly within the receptacle at all times. the danger of smudging the clothes and other articles is eliminated. Furthermore. the small quantity of cosmetic on the applicator head can be more easily manipulated without being brought, into-contact with anything but the lips, so as to entirely obviate any messy conditionresulting from the use of the cosmetic. I

Upon-returning the applicator II to the receptacle II by screwing the closure 22 thereon. the holder i4 is moved axially by the head 28 to again load the spring II, and a reverse rotary wiping motion of the head upon the cosmetic with which it is in contact, is efiected. thus again producing a milling action upon the crystalline structure of the cosmetic with the advantages previously pointed out.

It will be noted that due to the conical end 7 II of the holder ll, complementary tothe conical portion 11 of the head 26, the latter will remove cosmetic from the holder until the cos- 1 metic is exhausted, thus avoiding the waste of the preparation. which entails a considerable loss in the case of expensive products.

Reference will now be had to Figs. 4 and 7, inclusive, wherein the invention is shown to comprise a receptacle Ila having a cylindrical bore Ila. one end of which is reduced in diameter at Ila to form an annular stop shoulder ,lfa against which the open end of a cosmetic holder Ila abuts. The holder Ila-is a renewable refill cartridge of cylindrical form and is confined against displacement in thebore-ila by a plug lgahzcrewed into theopposite end of the .bore a The first mentioned end of the receptacle is provided with an externally threaded collar lie on which is adapted to bescrewed an-int'ernally threaded closure win the form of a stream-lined cap having a longitudinal bore 80 in which is force-fitted a metallic harrelll. The barrel fl is provided with a longitudinal groove 8! in which ticularly adapted for use in applying mascara and eye-shadow preparations Contained within the stem II and abutting the head-ll and a number of prongs ll inbent from the inner end ofthe barrel II, is a coil spring II which urges the applicator ll to the extreme position shown in Fig. 5 for co-action with the holder Ila in a manner identical to that of the applicator 23 described in theoperation of the first form of the invention.

From the foregoing description, it will be clear that the same principle is involved in both forms of the invention, as in a broad sense, both applicators and their respective cosmetic holders are relatively movable and are relatively urged towards, each other in the applied position of the applicators to the receptacles. so as to automatically transfer the substance of the cosmetic in the holders to the applicators until the contents of the holders are exhausted, all in a manner to obviate contamination of the body of cosmetic and smearing of the latter'on the clothes and other articles.
