For the attainment of these and such other ob
jects as may hereinafter appear or be pointed out,
I have shown an exemplification oi' one' form of
my invention in the accompanying drawing, in 30
which:

The cosmetic device of this invention and
which will achieve the objectsfabove set out is
housed within a casing I which is open at both
endsl and conveniently formed from- sheet metal 50
stamped to the required formation and the edges
brought together and sealed in any suitable man
ner (to enclose certain other parts which will be
presently described). The casing I maybe of any

piece of suitable textile, fibre or other material,
designated 4i, processed in a suitable and known
manner, to form pleats designated 41a, 4Ia', to
4Id, in Fig. 5. When the slide is in its lower

position and the applicator retracted within the
casing, the applicator material 4l is folded up as
shown in Fig. 5, presenting folded edges 4Ia, 4 Ib,
tially the entire height of the casing, see Fig. l,
(the purposes of these flutes will subsequently be
explained). The casing is not entirely cylindrical,

member which serves a number of functions but ’ or fans out from the contracted condition of Fig.
which for convenience will be simply referred to
as the frame member.
The frame member is
in the form of an elongated U-shaped member,
the front leg of which is designated 20 land the
20 rear leg designated 20', Fig. 3. The bend of the
vU,§ designated 2| extends somewhat through'the
top opening 9 of the casing I. The frame mèm
ber is formed from a single sheet of material, the
edges of- which (before the member is given the
U-shape) are folded in to form side flanges; the
left flange of the front leg »20, as viewed in Fig. 6
looking from'iîront- 20 to rear 20', is designated
22, while the'right flange of front leg 20 is desig
nated 23. ’ The left flange of the rear leg 20' olf>

'
-One of the purposes of providing the pair of
flutes 2 and I2 already‘referred to, is to posi
tion‘the frame member, or rather its left and
right'legs, firmly in place in the casing, which is
done by crimping the casing material along the
40 flanged edges of the frame member in the manner
clearly seen in Fig. 5.

to present a sufficient wide cosmetic applying sur
face. The applicatorl(4l) may be cheaply made,
using ordinary flat material in which pleats have
been processed as by pressure and steam, etc. 20
Or the pleats or folds may be pre-fabricated in
the material. The side edges of the material 4I is
secured in a suitable manner to arms 44 and 45,
which are preferably formed of narrow sheet
material folded in the form of a U, the respec
25
tive side edges of the applicator material inserted
therein, and the U-sheet metal crimped together
to hold the edges of the applicator material se
curely therein, see esp. Fig. 5. The edges of the
arms thus present a metallic wearing surface to 30
the edges of the open portion of the shutter, i. e.,
to the edges of the shutter straps 56 and 51 of
the shutter or closurevmember more fully de
scribed presently, and tothe edges of the flanges
22, 22', 23, 23', and thus shield the applicator 35
material from wear. By tapering the portion of
the casing near its open end, designated il and
l l', as already described, toward the casing open
ing, the otherwise right angle corners arevre
moved (which might have the effect of holding 40
oil the flat applicator from the face)v and 'the
device may be brought closer to the face and more
easily
handled.

For the purpose of pivotally (and replaceably)
mounting the ,pair of arms 44 and 45 to the slide 45
30, the slide isprovided with a pair of upstanding
supports, respectively, 34 and 35. 'I'he upper ends

lines in Fig. 2, to the upper position shown in
dot-and-dash 'lines in the same figure.
' 'I’he slide may be manipulated from retracted
65 to propelled position or‘ vice versa, by the use of
but one lug, so that the device may be operated
by one hand; this is desirable to free the other
to its support 34 by squeezing together the end
of the spread-apart arm and forcing the end be
tween' the eyelets 42 and 42' until the lugs or
short studs 46 and 46’ snap into the eyelets 42 65
and 42’. Arm 45 .is attached inthe same manner
to support 35.
'
Between the arms 44-45 is provided a suit
hand for holding the mirror usually required to
inspect the face as the cosmetic is applied. Single
able spring, suchas the piece of spring wire 4l,
hand operation is possible, using either one or the
other 'of the two lugs, or the device may be pro

which the applicator material is secured to the
One of the functions of the slide is to propel
and retract the applicator, which, designated
generally 40, is attached to the slide in a manner
arms.
The natural tendency of spring wire 4l'V
is to separate its two ends. In retracting the
slide and applicator to the position shown in Fig.
-
2, the spring is-tensioned by forcing the ends of
>the wire toward each other. As the slide is
'pushed forward and the arms (together with
the vapplicator material) propelled through the
'cutout-25.»in the frame member 20 (likewise,
:opening 9 at the top of
the casing) . the arms are
4spread apartfby the tensioned spring to the dot
>and-dash‘position of- Fig.` 2. As the slide is
pushed downward, the arms are forced or squeezed
10
together-_the applicator material folding into
the pre-arranged pleats-against the force of
spring 41.
The slide Z0, its supports 34 and 35, and the
arms 44 and 45 also serve to close the slots 3 and
15 I3 (required for finger lugs 32 and 23 of the
slide). Suport 34 and arm 44 (under pressure
of spring 41) close slot 3, see Fig. 2, while support
35 and arm 45 (also pressed by spring 41) close
slot I3. That is, these slots are closed when the
device is closedwith the applicator retracted.
A further function of the casing flutes 2 and |2
may now be pointed'out and that is, the inner
most edges of the flutes serve to maintain the
arms 44 and 45 of the retractable applicator in
alignment with the inside edges cf the straps 55
and 51 of the shutter 50 .(which will be presently
described) and also within the inside edges of
flanges 22, 22', 23 and 23’ of the frame member,
which define the opening through which the
applicator clears, so that the arms will encounter
no overhang to block their emergence from the
casing.
-
.
There may be provided at the bend or topmost
portion of the track member, see Fig. 2, a pair of
seats I4 and I5 respectively, cooperating with
arms 44 and 45, to provide abutments for the
arms which are pressed apart by the spring 41.
The arms may be provided with recessed portions
forming shoulders 48 and 49 which snap over the
40 respective seats I5 and I4, to hold the applicator
in extended position and to hold its pair of arms
more firmly.
' i
'I'he opening 25 inthe frame member through
which the applicator is propelled, is normally
45 closed-i. e., when the applicator is retracted-by
a thin, flexible closure or shutter 50 which is
guided in the trackway of frame member 20. It is
thus seen that one of the functions of the frame
member 20 is to provide a trackway for the shutter
50 50 which it does by the provision of the turned-in
edges or flanges 22 and 23 and 22' and 23’ already
described.

aisance
.
Closure shutter 50 may be operated by the
slide 20; the shutter 50 may be positively sc
55 cured to the slide as shown in Fig. 3, or the con
nection between the slide and shutter may be an
impositive one, as shown in Fig. '1. Taking up
first the structure of Fig. 3, the shutter is se
cured at 5I near its trailing end 52 (at the front
60 of the device, Fig. 3) to the front piece 2| of
the slide. 'I'he portion of the shutter which serves
to Vclose the aperture 0--25, extends from the
leading end >53 ofthe shutter to a point desig
nated 54: the aperture closing portion of the
05 shutter will be referred to as 53---54, The shutter
is provided with an open portion which extends
from point 54 to a point designated 55, see Fig. 3.
The width of the open portiony 54-55'is from the
inner edge of flange 22, see Fig. 5 to the inner
edge of flange 23, of the frame member: hence
there is'from point 54 to point 55, Fig. 3, a shoul
der strap 55 and 51, Fig. 5, along both edges of
the opening 54--55.
In the lower position of slide 30 as shown in
'Il Fig. 3, with the applicator retracted lwithin the
casing. the casing opening 0--25 is closed by the
aperture closing portion 53--54 of the shutter.
As the slide is pushed upwardly, the shutter which
is secured to the slide as already described, is
advanced along the trackway of the frame mem
ber, the closing portion 53-`--54 of the shutter
moving (clockwise, as viewed in Fig. 3) away
from casing aperture 9-25, the opening 54-55
56-51 of the shutter traversing across the cas
ing aperture. It will beobserved from Fig. _3
that the top of the applicator 40 when in.- re
tracted position (as shown in that figure) is suf
ficiently below the bend 2| of the frame member,
so that the closing portion 53--54 of the shutter
will have been advanced away from _the casing 15
aperture 8-25 when the top of the applicator
reaches the aperture; hence further movement
of the slide will propel the applicator through
the shutter .opening 54-«55--55-5L The latter
opening is sufficiently long 54--55 so‘that the
applicator may project therethrough as the shut
ter continues to be advanced by the slide.
The impositiva ’connective construction: be
tween the slide and the shutter is shown in Fig. ’1,
wherein the slide is designated |30, its front
piece |3|; the frame- member or rather the web of
the iront legthereof is designated |25. The
shutter |50 is likewise as in. Fig. 3, made of thin,
flexible material. The proportion of the shutter
which is imperforate'ifor closing the casing aper 30
ture) and which is open (for applicator propul-v
sion) is different than in the construction of Fig.
3. In the modification of Fig. '1, the shutter open
portion is very much smaller, and need only be
sufficient for the applicator to pass through; this
results from the fact, as will be more fully ex
piained presently, that the ¿shutter remains im- ’
mobile while the applicator is being' propelled
from the casing,
-

«
The end |52 of shutter |50 is secured to an "40
auxiliary slide |00, which is guided for an extent
of sliding movement between the web |20 and
edge flange |22 of the frame member. It will be
observed from Fig. 7 that a suiliciently wide space
is provided between web |20 and flange |22 for
the thickness of auxiliary slide |00, and that the
space between the upper portions of the web and
its flange, designated |20’ and |22’ in Fig. '1, is
merely sufficient for the thin shutter |50. A tab
|58 is struck from the web |20 of the frame mem
ber to form a lower stop limiting the downward
movement of auxiliary slide |00; a similar tab |58
constitutes the top stop, so that auxiliary slide |00
is vertically movable between stops I58.and |59.
Auxiliary slide |00, and shutter |50 secured there
to, are raised and lowered by manipulative slide
|30 through the provision of a spring member
||0 which is looped in the manner shown and
having one end I|| secured to the inside of the
front piece |3| of the manipulative slide |30.
Front piece |3| is provided with a slot |32 through
which passes the end of the spring member IID,
which end is beveled (I |2) for a purpose soon ap
parent. 'I'he member | I0 is constituted to put its
bevel ‘end U2 under spring tension tending to 65

plug I8A is provided -with a recess or groove I6 in
which may be inserted a thin coin or tool for un
screwing the plug. In this manner access may
be had to the powder compartment for the .pur R25
’pose of replenishing it with powderor other pur
poses.
.
.
Communication is afforded between the powder
compartment I9 and the applicator 40, or rather
the applicator material 4|, by the provision ofv a £30
plurality of holes 26 in the'front web 24 of the
frame member. Powder contained in compart
ment |9` will thus coat itself, through holes 26,
upon the applicator.. As shown in Fig. 5_the-.par
titìon holes. 2E may be »aligned with the folds r3.5
(4in, 4|b, etc.) of :the -applicator. It will be
readily- understood that the applicator material,
in its folded, retracted and squeezed condition',
serves. to close the powder-openings;. by aligning
the partition holes with' the folded edges of the
applicator, the latter‘will more tightly close the
powder ports. Instead of a plurality' of powder
openings, such as 25, a single large opening `(not
shown) may be provided inthe partition to put
the powder compartment» in communication with
the applicator. However, the. plurality of holes
serve as a sifter for the powder, and might be
preferred for this’reason.
.
-
It is thus seen that when the applicator is re
tracted and the shutter 50 closes the casing aper
-50
ture 9-25, the powder ports 26 are closed by the
applicator material 4| itself, which thus becomes
coated with face powder. When’the slide 30 is
already described.

tion- 21 affording communication between the
rouge and the applicator or rather the top por
40
tion~of-theg applicator- material (more particu
larly, fold points Ma', Mb' and Avlc', Fig. 5).
Normally the rougecake (6U-6I) is maintained
out-of contact with the applicator-by the provi
sion of a pair oi strip springs 68 and 63, the lower
45 portions of which are secured to the web~24’ of
the :frame member; 'the upper portions of the
springs bear. against shoulders 62,»63 left on the
backingby making the rouge cake 60 somewhat
short, see Fig. 5. For the purpose of moving the
rouge toward the applicator to contact the same.
50 a finger hole 5 is provided in the casing opposite
the rouge backing 6I. The iinger hole is of less
area than the backing (which incidentally is
contoured to the inside bore of the casing, see
55
Fig. 5) so as to prevent‘the rouge unit from
falling through the iinger opening. By placing a
finger at opening 5 and pressing against backing
6I thereat exposed, the rouge cake may be
brought in- contact with the applicator to daub
60 the same with rouge.
„The rouge oakeis maintained in position op

Figs. 3 and. 8, and is there maintained by the
70 plug I8, or rather the overhanging shoulder I.8s
of the plug, as clearly seen in Fig. 8.

for holding thev rouge cake, and having no cos- -

The applicator 40, or rather its applicator ina
terial, servesboth as a face powder medium and 40
as a rouge medium, one side of the material, the
front'side (Mr 1lb, Mc and Md, Fig. 5) serv-l

It is clear‘that the device need not be arranged 45.
and provided (with face powder, rouge and lip
stick) as shown in the figures. A wide diversifi
cation of facilities and arrangements are possible
andcontemplated within the invention, _among
which may be enumerated: a device provided 50,
merely with an applicator or pad (puiî) ; a device
provided with an applicator plus a. single powder
compartment; an applicator device provided with
two powder compartments, for face powders of
different shades and/or textures. In the ar
5.5'
rangement last suggested the leg 20’ and web 24'
of the frame member and the shutter would be
constructed, similar to the construction shown in
Fig. 3, so that the powder ports of both powder
compartments will be closed when the applicator
is propelled from the casing. Further arrange
ments would be: a device provided with an appli
cator and a rouge cake; an applicator device pro
vided with a rouge cake and a lipstick; an appli
cator device provided with two rouge cakesl of 65
different shades; the latter further provided with
a lipstick or lipsticks of diñerent shades; an
applicator device provided with powder compart
ment and rouge cake; the latter further provided
with a lipstick or lipstioks of different shades; an 70
applicator device provided with powder compart
ment and rouge cake; the latter further provided
with a lipstick (this is the arrangement shown
in the drawing).
