A. O. HANISCH MASCARA APPLICATOR AND CURLER July 6, 1943.
Filed Jan. 23, 1941 INVENTOR ARTHUR 0. HAN/5CH.' Uh/iw ATTORNEY Patented July 6, 1943 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE. I 2,323,595 I MASCARA APPLI TOR AND CURLER Arthur 0. Haniscli, Altadena, Calif.
Application January 23, 1941, Serial No. 375,564
3 Claims.
It is an object of this invention to provide an eyelash mascara applicator containing a supply of mascara in the moist state by means of which the'eyelashes may be darkened and curled at the same time.
It is a further object of this invention to darken and curl eyelashes by means of an applicator device which applies pressure only to the eyelashes.
In the drawing:
. Figure 1 is a perspective View of a preferred form of my device,
Figure 2 is a plan view thereof,
Figure 3 is a sectional view on line 33 of Figure 2,
Figure 4 is an end elevation View,
Figure 5 is a perspective view of the device in a container, and
Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 3 showin a modification.
Referring now to the drawing, the numeral II] indicates a relatively thin resilient member, bent in the form of a U as shown in Fig. 3, and provided at each of its open ends with a widened portion forming arms II and I2, perpendicular to the legs of the U-shaped member. The base of the U-shaped member I is shown widened to substantially the same Width as the arms II and i2 and the two legs of the U shape are shown narrowed. Obviously, the particular shape of the legs and the base of the member I0 may be varied as desired. The arms II and I2 are shaped as shown to provide convex and concave surfaces I3 and I l respectively on the inner surfaces thereof. In the arm II the inner surface is convex and in the arm I2 the inner surface is correspondingly concave so that the said curved inner surfaces work together in a cooperative manner to be described. The ends of the arms I I and I2 are curved as shown at IS in order to better fit the eyelashes, as will be described.
On the inner surface of the arm II is provided a pad I of certain thickness made of soft absorbent felt or of similar or other suitable material, extending substantially the entire length and width of the curved surface I3 and cemented or otherwise fastened thereto. A thinner pad I6, like the pad I5 as to material and size, is similarly attached to the inner surface of the arm I2 on the curved surface I4 thereof. The pads and the inner surfaces assume the curved shapes of the surfaces I3 and Id. The thicker pad I5 is impregnated with a supply of mascara coloring in an oil base in moist form which constitutes a water insoluble mixture, although the invention is not so limited as any type of mas cara in a moist state may be used. The oil in the mixture not only aids in setting the lashes into curls but also prevents the drying out of the same. The thinner pad I6 may also be charged with moist mascara if so desired, although the invention will operate even though the pad I6 is not initially charged with mascara. In Fig ure 5 the device is shown in the container II by means of which the device may be carried safely without soiling contacting articles. I p
In use the mascara applicator is closed on the eyelashes by finger squeezing of the legs of the member I D, so that the pads I5 and I 6 are pressed together with the lashes therebetween. In this way the mascara mixture, due to the pressure on the pads, is discharged therefrom and is evenly applied by the pressure to all of the lashes caught between the pads. The pads are wide and long enough to cover a substantial portion of the lashes. It is to be noted that the applicator transfers the mascara to the lashes by pressure on the pads which in turn is transferred to the lashes and this serves a double purpose. First it is not necessary to draw the pads lengthwise along the lashes as is necessary with other types of pressure applicators. The danger of drawing a pressure applicator lengthwise of the lashes is that the lashes are or may be pulled out of the eyelid, a very detrimental action entirely avoided by the present device. Secondly, by means of the curved pressure pads I5 and I6 not being moved lengthwise the pressure itself will curl the moistened lashes so that the applicator not only applies mascara but aso curls the lashes at the same time with the oil in the mixture aiding in the setting of the curls. The curling is caused by the curved surfaces of the pads and these in turn are curved due to the curved surfaces I3 and I4. Inasmuch as the pads are soft, the pressure on them causes each lash to be entirely surrounded by the pad and thus the entire surface of the engaged portion of each lash receives the mascara.
It is to be noted, as shown in Figure 4, that the arms I I and I2, in addition to being provided with convex and concave surfaces I3 and I4, are themselves curved convex and concave as at I8 and I9 to more readily engage the lashes. Thus within the surface of each curved arm II and I2 the convex and concave areas I3 and I4 are provided.
By making the pad I6 thinner, it is easier to apply the device to both the upper and lower 1ashes and by having the thinner pad It on the concave arm l2, the lashes can be curled in the proper direction. It will be apparent that when the thicker pad alone is impregnated with mascara, the thinner pad will become coated and usually impregnated with it before long.
While other materials may be used to make the U-shaped member l0, it is preferred to use a resilient material such as a thin spring metal. In this way, the natural resilience of the material keeps the stems and their associated arms well apart and hence the user need only press the arms together when the device is used.
In the use of the present device, after the lashes are caught between the pads under pressure and are thus darkened and curled, while maintaining the pressure with the lashes in place between the pads, the entire applicator may be turned in the proper direction to further aid in curling the lashes. By maintaining the pressure for a short time and by turning the applicator, which appropriately turns the lashes therewith, the lashes are curled and set.
In order to prevent smudging of the eyelid if the applicator is applied too close to the same, the forward or leading edges 22, 22 of the pads 15 and I6 may each be covered or coated with any suitable sizing material so as to prevent the escape of any coloring matter from the leading edges of the pads onto the eyelid. In Figure 6 is shown a modification whereby the same result maybe achieved without sizing. The arms H and I2 are each formed with inwardly extending lips 20 and 2| behind which the pads 15 and I6 are placed in position, the pads each being thicker than their respective lips to allow room for the compression of the pads. Thus the each other, and a curved pad of uniform thicklips 20 and 2| prevent smudging of the eyelid if the applicator is applied too close.
I claim:
1. An applicator device of the character described including a pair of arms, means for supporting said arms in opposing relation, one of said arms being convex curved and the other being concave curved, as viewed from between said arms a concave surface formed in said convex arm and a convex surface in said concave arm, the inner opposing surfaces of said arms being substantially. equally distant from ness mounted on the inner opposing surface of each of said arms, at least one of said pads being impregnated with mascara.
2. An applicator device of the character described comprising a resilient U-shaped member, a convex curved arm on the end of one of the stems of said U-shaped member and a concave curved arm on the end of the other stem, as viewed from between said arms a concave surface formed in said convex arm and a convex surface in said concave arm, the inner opposing surfaces of said arms being substantially equally distant from each other and a curved pad of uniform thickness mounted on the inner opposing surface of each of said arms, at least one of said pads being impregnated with mascara.
3. A device as set forth in claim 1 in which the pad on the concave surface of the inner opposing surfaces is thinner than the pad on the convex surface.
