3. The mascara brush of claim 1, wherein the length of the curvature of the curved end is within 2 mm.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] (a) Technical Field of the Invention

[0002] The present invention relates to a brush, and in particular, to a mascara brush with bristles having curved ends thereof. The curvature of the bristles provides a convenient way of applying the mascara to the eyelashes.

[0003] (b) Description of the Prior Art

[0004] FIGS. 3, 3A, 4 and 4A show a conventional mascara kit having a container 20 for holding mascara, and an external cap body 20 for locking the container 20. The interior of the cap body 20 is protruded with a mascara brush 22 having spiral shape bristles 23 which can be inserted into the container to collect the mascara for make-up. The conventional brush with mascara is to be applied to the eyelashes, but the straight end of the bristles collect mascara as droplets and therefore, repeating applications have to be applied so as to evenly cover the eyelashes. Accordingly it is an object of the present invention to provide a mascara brush structure which can mitigate the above drawbacks.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a container containing mascara and an external cap body for covering the container, and a brush rod, for locking the brush, characterized in that the external end edge of the brush of the locking kit has a curve end such that when the mascara brush is used, the bristles move smoothly along the eyelashes.

[0006] Yet a further object of the present invention is to provide a structure of a mascara brush, wherein the curve end of the bristles has an inclined angle or a curved surface.

[0007] According to a preferred embodiment of the present invention, a mascara brush having a container containing mascara and an external cap body for covering the container, and a brush rod, for locking the brush is characterized in that the external end edge of the brush of the locking kit has a curve end such that when the mascara brush is used, the bristles move smoothly along the eyelashes.

[0008] The foregoing object and summary provide only a brief introduction to the present invention. To fully appreciate these and other objects of the present invention as well as the invention itself, all of which will become apparent to those skilled in the art, the following detailed description of the invention and the claims should be read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings. Throughout the specification and drawings identical reference numerals refer to identical or similar parts.

[0009] Many other advantages and features of the present invention will become manifest to those versed in the art upon making reference to the detailed description and the accompanying sheets of drawings in which a preferred structural embodiment incorporating the principles of the present invention is shown by way of illustrative example.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

[0018] The following descriptions are of exemplary embodiments only, and are not intended to limit the scope, applicability or configuration of the invention in any way. Rather, the following description provides a convenient illustration for implementing exemplary embodiments of the invention. Various changes to the described embodiments may be made in the function and arrangement of the elements described without departing from the scope of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.

[0019] Referring to FIGS. 1, 1A, 2 and 2A, there is shown a structure of a mascara brush having a container 10 filled with mascara. An external cap body 11 is used to lock the container 10. In accordance with the present invention, the interior of the external cap body 11 is mounted with a mascara brush via a plastic rod 12. A bristle section 13 for make up is mounted at the lateral side thereof by rotating. The bristle 14 is arranged to allow the insertion into the container 10. The end of the bristle 14 is formed into a curved end 15 and the angle of the curvature can be large or small and can also be an inclined angle. The length of the curvature is within 2 mm and the external end edge of the bristle 14 has an extended inclined surface. When in application, the curved end section 15 allows a smooth application so that the entire brush can closely brush along the eyelashes, and the mascara gathered at the bristle is more.

[0020] As shown in FIG. 2, the brush provides a convenient make up to the eyelashes. The extended curved end 15 of the bristle 14 can be fabricated so that the end edge of the bristle 14 is combined with the plastic rod 12. Accordingly, the present invention provides a mascara brush which can make up along a curvature.

[0021] It will be understood that each of the elements described above, or two or more together may also find a useful application in other types of methods differing from the type described above.

[0022] While certain novel features of this invention have been shown and described and are pointed out in the annexed claim, it is not intended to be limited to the details above, since it will be understood that various omissions, modifications, substitutions and changes in the forms and details of the device illustrated and in its operation can be made by those skilled in the art without departing in any way from the spirit of the present invention.
