Description

    RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application Ser. No. 61/974,963, filed Apr. 3, 2014, entitled “COMBINATION DISPENSER AND APPLICATOR,” assigned to the assignee hereof and the entirety of which is incorporated herein by reference.
  • BACKGROUND
  • In the cosmetic industry, a wide assortment of cosmetic devices and products are available for various uses. For instance, compacts may be used to store dry cosmetic product, bottles may be used to store wet cosmetic product, brushes may be used to apply cosmetic product to a face, mirrors may be used to assist in applying a cosmetic product, dispensers may be used to expel cosmetic product from storage, and so on.
  • A typical cosmetic user may have a collection of any combination of these devices. The collection may remain at the user's residence (e.g., in a bathroom cabinet) or the user may carry the collection or a sub-set of the collection with them when they leave their residence. For instance, many cosmetic users carry a collection of cosmetic devices and products in a carrying bag or purse.
  • Because of the wide variety of cosmetic devices and products on the market, the user's carrying bag often becomes overcrowded and cluttered, making it difficult for the user to quickly find and use a desired cosmetic device.
  • Accordingly, there remains a need for cosmetic devices that reduce cluttering by combining functions of multiple devices into a single device.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The detailed description is set forth with reference to the accompanying FIGS. In the FIGS., the left-most digit(s) of a reference number identifies the FIG. in which the reference number first appears. The use of the same reference numbers in different FIGS. indicates similar or identical items.
  • FIG. 1 illustrates an example cosmetic device comprising a handle with a dispenser nozzle and a removably coupled applicator.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates an example cosmetic device with a dispensing nozzle coupled to a reservoir via a dispensing mechanism.
  • FIG. 3 illustrates an example cosmetic device comprising a handle with an at least partially flexible wall.
  • FIG. 4 illustrates an example cosmetic device comprising a handle, an applicator fixed to a ferrule, and a cap in a separated position.
  • FIG. 5 illustrates multiple embodiments of an applicator that may be removably coupled to a handle of a cosmetic device.
  • FIGS. 6A-D illustrate multiple embodiments of handle configurations of a cosmetic device.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION Overview
  • As discussed above, the wide assortment of available cosmetic devices may cause cluttering in a user's purse. Additionally, when each device is purchased individually, the costs of maintaining a collection of cosmetic devices can quickly escalate.
  • This disclosure is directed to a cosmetic device that combines the functions of multiple cosmetic devices into a single device. For instance, the functionality of a mister or other dispenser may be combined with the functionality of an applicator.
  • In some examples, a handle of the cosmetic device may comprise an internal reservoir for containing a cosmetic product. The internal reservoir may be communicatively coupled to a dispensing nozzle. Product may be conveyed from the reservoir and expelled from the dispensing nozzle by a dispensing mechanism, such as a pump. Alternatively, the contents of the reservoir may be under pressure and product may be conveyed from the reservoir and expelled from the nozzle by the pressure when a valve is opened. An applicator, such as brush, may be removably coupled to the handle. In some embodiments, the applicator may cover the dispenser nozzle when coupled.
  • Multiple and varied example implementations and embodiments are described throughout. However, these examples are merely illustrative and other implementations and embodiments of a dispenser and applicator device may be implemented without departing from the scope of the disclosure. For instance, certain components, or portions thereof, may be rearranged, combined, used together, omitted entirely, and/or may be otherwise modified to arrive at variations on the disclosed implementations.
