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: ' Fig. l is perspective view of one i'orm of .a complete device of this invention; Fig. 2 is a sectional longitudinal view thereof taken on a diameter from left to right; 35 Fig. 3 is likewise a sectional llongitudinal view but taken on a diameter from front to back; Fig. «i is a top view of the device; Fig. 5 is a section through the device on the line 5--5 of Fig. 3; 4 . 40 i Fig. 6 is vlikewise a section through the device ' but on the line 6-6 of-Fig. 2; Fig. 7 is a sectional elevational detail of a modiiled form of impositive connection between 45 the slide and the shutter; and Fig. 8 is avbottom view of the device. 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 desired sectional outline, either fiat or circular, 55 presently described. 'I'he applicator comprises a although the ñgures, see esp. Figs. 5 and 6, show the latter, for illustrative purposes. The circular section in the figures, see Figs. 5 and 6, is dis rupted by a pair of diametrically opposed ilutes 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 _ or wide channels 2 and l2.which extend substan 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, 4ic and 4id to the front of the device and edges 41a', 4ib', and Me’ to the rear. It is clear that 10 as can best be seen from Figs. 1 and 3, because 10 of a taper il and Il' given to the front and rear these number and arrangements of folds may opposed _walls of the upper portion of the casing, which taper towards an opening 9 at the top of the casing. be varied as desired. I_n any event, as the slide .~ Extending the entire length of the casing is a wA 15 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> 30 the' frame member, still viewing Fig. 6 in the same manner, is designated 22’ and the rightA flange, 23'. The web portion of the front leg 20 is designated 24 and the web of the rear leg 20’ is designated 24'. 35 is pushed upward and the applicator propelled from the casing, the applicator material spreads . ' -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. - The web vportion of the frame member is pro vided atthe bend 2| with a cut-out 25, through which is propelled the powder and/or rouge ap later fully described. .45 plicator, In the central portion of the casing, within vthe space between the two legs of the frame 5 to the open and extended condition of Fig. 2 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. . - ‘ 1 „ , - . 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 oi' the supports are turned upon themselves to which may be-formed of two pieces of sheet ma .form eyelets 42 and the central portion of the terial,'a front'piece 3l and a rear piece 3i' formed supports, e. g., support 34 shownl in Fig. 3, is 50 50 as bést shown in Fig. 6. The ends of the pair cutaway 43, Fig. 3, leaving a pair of eyelets on each support; the eyelets of support 34 are desig of pieces 3i and 3|' are brought together as clear ly shown in Figs. 6 and 5, to form manipulative nated in Fig. 3 as 42 and 42’. The eyelets of sup lugs 32 and 33, The casing, more particularly, port 35 are similarly designated in Fig. 6. The lower portions of arms 44 and 45 are spread somo 55 55 the innermost portions of the flutes 2 and i2, is what apart (see arm 44 in Fig. 3 and arm 45 in provided with slots 3 and i3, respectively, for the lugs 32 and 33. 'I‘he exposed ends of the lugs Fig. 6) to make them more springy, and each arm is provided with a pair of short studs or cylin are knurled or serrated or otherwise formed t0 provide finger 'gripping portions. By means of drical lugs 46 and 46', see Fig. 3 and Fig. 6, which fit in the eyelets of the support, respective; 60 60 the lugs, the slide may be moved from the lower end of the slots, its position as shown in solid . ly, 42 and 42'. Arm 44, for example, is attached member, is provided a slide designated 30, and 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 the ends of which are attached to the arms, as 70 by the same or a similar crimping operation by vided with but a single lug. 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. 3 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 project that'end through slot |32 of the manipu lative slide |30. Member ||0 is provided with a stop | I3 limiting the extent of projection of spring, end ||2. Bevel end |I2 of spring member ||0 is receiv able in a depression or cup IM provided in auxil iary slide |00. When the manipulative slide |30 is in _its lowermost position as shown in Fig. 'l with the applicator retracted and the casing aperture closed, the end ||2 oi’ spring member 2,186,204 el liiisfpositioned'in cup |0| of the auxiliaryslidev jself-contained‘appiicator already described, with |00.: »Hence as' the manipulative slide'. |30r-ïis pushed upwardly, auxiliary slide |00 is advanced -fromits-lower stop |59, in the same upward direc' -tiorn‘ ".'I'hisv raising of -auxiliary slide |00 -moves thez'shutter |50, which is'attached thereto, in-‘a ydirection to open thecasing aperture’ 9-25 (not -shownïl in;.v-Fig..'1, but'see Fig. 3). >The upward movement‘of .the'auxiliary slide' |00,»spring end :10.

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. The structure shown in Fig. 7 featuring the ' pushed upward to _open the casing aperture- and impositive connection between the manipulative to propel the applicator, the latter will have pow :55 slide and-the closure shutter may beused for der.- supplied to one vside thereof (i. e., to the face other cosmetic devices in which, instead of an of the -applicator >corresponding to folds 4|a to applicator (as illustrated in the other figures of 4 Id, Fig. 5). When'the device is being used, i. e., this application), a cosmetic such as a lipstick with the applicator in extended spread-out con pencil or the like may be mounted on the slide dition (dot-dash'lines, Fig. 2), the applicator no '0,0 longer serves'to close the powder ports. There is for propulsion and retraction therewith. ' no imperative need for closing these ports when If desired the shutter _may be entirely independ ent of the applicator slide. It may, for example, -the‘device is being applied to the face, since in take the form of a thin shutter which may be this operation the casing is held substantially »moved by finger pressure from closed to open vertical and the powder will fall to the bottom .65 position and vice versa. Or anyother suitable of the compartment, at least below the lowest closure means may be used, such as a removable powder port 26, the compartment, of course, never being- completely filled with powder. But lid or cap. > The device (thus far described) may be used ifit is desired to close the powder ports 26 when the applicator is in projected position, this may 70 merely as a pad or applicator or spreader or the conveniently -be done by the shutter member 50. like, without provision for supplying the applica As the slide 30 is being elevated and the applif tor with face powder or rouge or similar cosmetic. cator 40 moved away from the ports and out of kFrom another aspect my invention contem plates self -contained and automatic provisions for the casing, the imperiorate part of the shutter supplying a face pad or applicator, such as the 50. starting from point 55, Fig. 3 and extending |0 |. The parts are thus in position shown in Fig. ’l ready' for opening manipulation of the device as 70 515 clearance for closure plug I8.

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 posite vtoythe port 21 in the frame partition and opposite to'ñnger opening 5 in the casing, by means_of a ,member 10 which may be itself a 05 cosmetic unit,-such as'a lipstick unit. Lipstick unit 10 is insertable in the space between tile casing and partition 24’y (20') of the frame mem ber, through a hole I6 in the bottom cap 8, see 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. One por tion of the plug periphery is flattened, Ißf, so that by turning the plug-_by the use of a thin coin or tool inserted in groove I6,.as already exp1ained,--- 7.5; iiat I8! may be brought opposite the lipstick unit stick unit may take any desired form; the lipstick pencil may merely project from the unit or it may be entirely removable therefrom when used on the face. Or, the lipstick unit may be elimi 3.5i nated and merely a block or holder 10 be used for holding thev rouge cake, and having no cos- - metio function- of its own. 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 ing „for thel face powder and the other side (M'a', Mb’ and Hc', Fig. 5) for the rouge. 1 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). . Instead of loose powder, a powder chalk may 751 6 ` 2,136,204 bev used, in which case the construction shown and described in connection' with rouge cake Bû-BI may be used. Hence other arrangements might be: Ava device provided with‘anapplieator and a powder chalk; the same further provided with a lipstick; an' applicator device provided with two powder chalks oi.' different shades and/or textures; an applicator device provided with a powder chalk and a rouge cake; the last two 10 further provided with a' lipstick'or lipsticks. i It is clear that, a'lipstick unit „can only be used with the rouge cake or 'with the powder' challî. Instead ot the supporting unit 10 being a lip stick,'it may be any other desired cosmetic item," 15 such as an eyebrow pencil, an orange sticlr- and so forth. An arrangementor four different cos y metio items' conveniently‘arranged lin a self contained‘unitmight be'mentioned and that is -an applicator device provided with powder chalk, rouge cake, lipstick and eyebrow pencil.
