USPTO Applicaton #: #20130032166
Inventors: Aiden Taeyeon Kim


The Patent Description & Claims data below is from USPTO Patent Application 20130032166, Multi mascara brush.

BACKGROUND

- Top of Page


1. Field

The present invention relates to a mascara brush adapted to apply mascara to eyelashes.

2. Description of the Related Art

Generally, a mascara applicator, which is one kind of cosmetic for women, is used to apply various colors of mascara to eyelashes to beautify the eyes.

Typically, such a mascara applicator largely includes a container in which mascara is stored, a handle used when opening or closing the container, a brush bar extended downwardly from the handle, and a brush provided on the brush bar. To use the mascara applicator, the mascara is applied to the brush in a process of coupling and separating the handle to and from the container.

The mascara brush has a body part and a brush molding part, which is adapted to apply mascara to eyelashes, and the body part and the brush molding part are injected integrally with each other. Alternatively, they are separately made and then coupled to each other. If a comb molding part (not shown) is additionally provided to arrange the eyelashes neatly, the combs of the comb molding part should have relatively higher thicknesses than the bristles of the brush molding part.

Particularly, the mascara brush can conduct various functions, for example, a volumizing function (which makes eyelashes appear abundant), a curling function (which curls the ends of the eyelashes upwards), a lash lengthening function (which makes the eyelashes appear long) and a cleaning function (which prevents the eyelashes from aggregating together), in accordance with the lengths and shapes of bristles of the mascara brush.

Conventional mascara brushes have fibers or bristles made of a synthetic resin such as nylon having excellent liquid receptability and storability and PBT (PolyButylene Terephthalate) having excellent water absorption and durability and long life terms, and thus, the volumizing, curling, lash lengthening and cleaning functions are provided in accordance with the shapes and arrangements of the fibers or bristles.

Only with the simple materials or shapes of the existing mascara brushes, however, it is hard to perform the volumizing, curling, lash lengthening and cleaning functions, while being provided with more excellent qualities and use experiences, which fails to satisfy more complicated and various demands of consumers. Further, the conventional mascara brushes have limitations in that it is difficult to provide new other complex functions.

SUMMARY

- Top of Page


Accordingly, the present invention has been made in view of the above-mentioned problems occurring in the prior art, and it is an object of the present invention to provide a mascara brush that is capable of applying mascara to eyelashes, while softly passing through the eyelashes, such that volumizing, curling, lash lengthening and cleaning functions can be performed with more excellent product qualities and more satisfied use experiences, thereby providing new sense of beauty not obtained in existing mascara brushes.

To accomplish the above object, according to the present invention, there is provided a mascara brush including: a body part made of a first material; and a brush molding part made of second and third materials and having body part-coupling members each coupled to the outer periphery of the body part and a plurality of bristles arranged vertically and horizontally along the outer peripheries of the body part-coupling members.

According to the present invention, preferably, the body part includes: a central bar; and a plurality of extended bristles protruded horizontally from the outer periphery of the central bar and adapted to form bristle arrangements capable of applying mascara to eyelashes together with the plurality of bristles of the brush molding part.

According to the present invention, preferably, the central bar of the body part is made of a fourth material having higher hardness than the first material and has a central portion formed at the center of the body part and an outer peripheral portion formed around the outer periphery of the central portion in such a manner as to be connected to the extended bristles.

According to the present invention, preferably, the brush molding part includes: a first brush molding part made of the second material and having the body part-coupling member coupled to a portion of the outer periphery of the body part; and a second brush molding part made of the third material and having the body part-coupling member coupled to the other portion of the outer periphery of the body part or the first brush molding part.

According to the present invention, preferably, the body part-coupling members of the first brush molding part and the second brush molding part are formed at different positions from each other in the circumferential direction of the body part.

According to the present invention, preferably, the body part-coupling members of the first brush molding part and the second brush molding part are formed multi-layered in the radial direction of the body part.

According to the present invention, preferably, the first brush molding part and the second brush molding part are formed at different positions from each other in the length direction of the body part.

According to the present invention, preferably, the brush molding part further includes a third brush molding part formed at a different position from the first brush molding part and the second brush molding part in the length direction of the body part, the third brush molding part being made of a fifth material.

According to the present invention, preferably, the mascara brush further includes a comb molding part made of the first, second, or third material and forming comb arrangements capable of tidying eyelashes.
