Description:
COSMETICS BRUSH HEAD WITH NESTED ARM

TECHNICAL FIELD

[0001] This disclosure relates to cosmetics brushes. More specifically, this disclosure relates to a cosmetics brush head comprising a nested arm for receiving cosmetics thereon.

BACKGROUND

[0002] Cosmetics (e.g., makeup, moisturizers, serums, etc.) can be applied to the skin, and often are applied to facial skin. Cosmetics brushes commonly comprise a handle and a brush head and can be used in the application of cosmetics. A typical brush head can comprise a plurality of brush fibers attached to a ferrule. Often, cosmetics are manually applied to the skin and the brush head is rubbed against the skin to spread and blend the cosmetics into the skin.

[0003] Applying cosmetics manually to the skin can result in the transfer of bacteria from a user’s hands to the skin. Manually applying cosmetics can also cause the stretching of skin and/or can damage delicate skin areas, such as the skin below the eyes. Additionally, applying multiple cosmetics to the skin in series can be time-consuming and can result in inadequate blending of the multiple cosmetics.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0038] The present disclosure can be understood more readily by reference to the following detailed description, examples, drawings, and claims, and the previous and following description. However, before the present devices, systems, and/or methods are disclosed and described, it is to be understood that this disclosure is not limited to the specific devices, systems, and/or methods disclosed unless otherwise specified, and, as such, can, of course, vary. It is also to be understood that the terminology used herein is for the purpose of describing particular aspects only and is not intended to be limiting.

[0039] The following description is provided as an enabling teaching of the present devices, systems, and/or methods in its best, currently known aspect. To this end, those skilled in the relevant art will recognize and appreciate that many changes can be made to the various aspects of the present devices, systems, and/or methods described herein, while still obtaining the beneficial results of the present disclosure. It will also be apparent that some of the desired benefits of the present disclosure can be obtained by selecting some of the features of the present disclosure without utilizing other features. Accordingly, those who work in the art will recognize that many modifications and adaptations to the present disclosure are possible and can even be desirable in certain circumstances and are a part of the present disclosure. Thus, the following description is provided as illustrative of the principles of the present disclosure and not in limitation thereof.

[0040] As used throughout, the singular forms“a,”“an” and“the” include plural referents unless the context clearly dictates otherwise. Thus, for example, reference to“an element” can include two or more such elements unless the context indicates otherwise.

[0041] Ranges can be expressed herein as from“about” one particular value, and/or to

“about” another particular value. When such a range is expressed, another aspect includes from the one particular value and/or to the other particular value. Similarly, when values are expressed as approximations, by use of the antecedent“about,” it will be understood that the particular value forms another aspect. It will be further understood that the endpoints of each of the ranges are significant both in relation to the other endpoint, and independently of the other endpoint. [0042] For purposes of the current disclosure, a material property or dimension measuring about X or substantially X on a particular measurement scale measures within a range between X plus an industry-standard upper tolerance for the specified measurement and X minus an industry-standard lower tolerance for the specified measurement. Because tolerances can vary between different materials, processes and between different models, the tolerance for a particular measurement of a particular component can fall within a range of tolerances.

[0043] As used herein, the terms“optional” or“optionally” mean that the subsequently

described event or circumstance can or cannot occur, and that the description includes instances where said event or circumstance occurs and instances where it does not.

[0044] The word“or” as used herein means any one member of a particular list and also includes any combination of members of that list. Further, one should note that conditional language, such as, among others,“can,”“could,”“might,” or“may,” unless specifically stated otherwise, or otherwise understood within the context as used, is generally intended to convey that certain aspects include, while other aspects do not include, certain features, elements and/or steps. Thus, such conditional language is not generally intended to imply that features, elements and/or steps are in any way required for one or more particular aspects or that one or more particular aspects necessarily include logic for deciding, with or without user input or prompting, whether these features, elements and/or steps are included or are to be performed in any particular aspect.

[0045] Disclosed are components that can be used to perform the disclosed methods and systems. These and other components are disclosed herein, and it is understood that when combinations, subsets, interactions, groups, etc. of these components are disclosed that while specific reference of each various individual and collective combinations and permutation of these may not be explicitly disclosed, each is specifically contemplated and described herein, for all methods and systems. This applies to all aspects of this application including, but not limited to, steps in disclosed methods. Thus, if there are a variety of additional steps that can be performed it is understood that each of these additional steps can be performed with any specific aspect or combination of aspects of the disclosed methods.

[0046] Disclosed in the present application is a cosmetics brush head and associated

methods, systems, devices, and various apparatus. Example aspects of the cosmetics brush head can comprise a cosmetics applicator and an applicator arm nested within the cosmetics applicator. The applicator arm can define a cosmetics surface configured to receive cosmetics thereon. It would be understood by one of skill in the art that the disclosed cosmetics brush head is described in but a few exemplary aspects among many. No particular terminology or description should be considered limiting on the disclosure or the scope of any claims issuing therefrom.

[0047] Figure 1 illustrates an example aspect of a cosmetics brush 100 according to the

present disclosure. As shown, the cosmetics brush 100 can comprise a cosmetics brush body 110 and a cosmetics brush head 120. The brush head 120 can comprise a cosmetics applicator 122 and one or more applicator arms 200 (shown in Figure 2) nested within the cosmetics applicator 122. According to example aspects, the cosmetics applicator 122 can comprising a plurality of brush fibers 124, as shown, bristles, or hair. In some aspects, the brush fibers 124 can be formed from a flexible and resilient material. For example, the brush fibers 124 can be formed from a natural material, such as, for example, sable or pony hair, or a synthetic material, such as, for example, PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) or nylon, or any other suitable material known in the art for forming brush fibers 124, or any combination thereof.

In still other aspects, the cosmetics applicator 122 can comprise a sponge 1510 (shown in Figure 15), gel silicone, or any other suitable material known in the art or combination thereof.

[0048] According to example aspects, as shown, the brush body 110 can comprise a ferrule 112 and a handle 116. In example aspects, each of the brush fibers 124 can be coupled at a restrained end 126 thereof to the ferrule 112. For example, in one aspect, the ferrule 112 can comprise grooves (not shown) for receiving the restrained end 126 of each of the brush fibers 124. In example aspects, the grooves can extend into an engagement face 350 (shown in Figure 3) of the ferrule 112 towards the handle 116. In some aspects, a fastener (not shown), such as, for example, an adhesive, such as glue, can aid in securing the brush fibers 124 within the grooves or otherwise coupling the brush fibers 124 to the ferrule 112.

[0049] As shown in Figure 1, each of the brush fibers 124 can define a free end 128 opposite the restrained end 126. The free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 can generally define an application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122. The application end 130 can engage the skin of a user during the application of cosmetics (e.g., liquid makeup, serums, lotions, etc.) to spread and blend the cosmetics on the user’s skin. In some aspects, as shown, the brush fibers 124 can fan outward from the ferrule 112, such that a width of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the application end 130 can be greater than a width of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the restrained ends 126 of the brush fibers 124. In the present aspect, the plurality of brush fibers 124 can define varying lengths to define a non-flat application end profile. For example, as shown, in some aspects the application end 130 of the brush head 120 can be curved to define a convex application end 132. The convex profile of the convex application end 132 is best seen in Figure 3. In other aspects, the application end 130 can define any other suitable profile, including, but not limited to, a flat profile or a concave profile. For example, in a particular aspect, each of the plurality of brush fibers 124 can define about the same length, and as such, a substantially flat application end 1232 (shown in Figure 12) can be defined at the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124.

[0050] In the present aspect, each of the brush fibers 124 can define a substantially circular cross-sectional shape; however, in other aspect, the brush fibers 124 can define a different cross-sectional shape, such as triangular, quadrangular, or any other suitable cross-sectional shape known in the art. Furthermore, in some aspects, the brush fibers 124 can define varying cross-sectional shapes. For example, in one aspect, a first set of the plurality of brush fibers 124 may define a circular cross-sectional shape, while a second set of the plurality of brush fibers 124 may define a triangular cross-sectional shape. In the present aspect, the brush head 120 can define a substantially oval-shaped cross-section, although other aspects of the brush head 120 can define any other suitable cross-sectional shape known in the art, including circular (as shown in Figure 4), triangular, rectangular, paisley-shaped, diamond-shaped, or any other suitable shape.

[0051] According to various aspects, the ferrule 112 can be formed from a metal material, such as aluminum. Other aspects of the ferrule 112 can be formed from a plastic material, wood material, or any other suitable material known in the art. In the present aspect of the handle 116, the handle 116 can also be formed from a metal material, such as aluminum; however, other aspects of the handle 116 can be formed from plastic, wood, or any other suitable material. In some aspects of the cosmetics brush 100, such as the present aspect, the handle 116 can be attached to the ferrule 112 distal to the brush head 120 and can extend away from the brush head 120, as shown. The handle 116 can be configured to be manually gripped by a user during the application of cosmetics to the user’s skin. According to other aspects, however, the cosmetics brush 100 may not comprise the handle 116, and can comprise the ferrule 112 only, as shown in the example aspects of Figures 13-18, wherein the ferrule 112 can function as the handle 116. In still other aspects, the cosmetics brush 100 may not comprise the ferrule 112, and instead can comprise the handle 116 only, wherein the brush head 120 can be directly attached to the handle 116.

[0052] In the present aspect, the handle 116 can define a generally circular cross-sectional shape, and in some aspects, can taper away from the ferrule 112, as illustrated. However, other aspects of the handle 116 can define any other suitable cross-sectional shape, such as oval, triangular, rectangular, and the like, and may or may not taper away from the ferrule 112. In the present aspect of the ferrule 112, the ferrule 112 can define a generally oval- shaped cross-section and can taper towards the handle 116. However, other aspects of the ferrule 112 can define any other suitable cross-sectional shape, including, but not limited to, circular, rectangular, triangular, and the like, and may or may not taper towards the handle 116. For example, in the aspect of Figures 4-6, the ferrule 112 can define a generally circular cross-sectional shape, as will described in further detail below.

[0053] Example aspects of the cosmetics applicator 122 can define one of more applicator channels 150 formed therein, and each of the applicator channels 150 can generally extend from the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 to the ferrule 112. Each of the applicator channels 150 can define an opening 152 located at the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122 to allow access to the corresponding applicator channel 150.

[0054] Referring to Figure 2, according to example aspects, the brush head 120 can further comprise the one or more applicator arms 200 configured to receive cosmetics thereon. As shown, in the present aspect, the cosmetics brush 100 can comprise first, second, and third applicator arms 200a, b,c (generally the applicator arms 200), wherein each of the applicator arms 200 can be received within a corresponding one of the applicator channels 150 (shown in Figure 1), such that each of the applicator arms 200 is nested within the brush fibers 124. Other aspects of the cosmetics brush 100 can comprise more or fewer applicator arms 200. Example aspects of the applicator arms 200 can be coupled to the ferrule 112 (shown in Figure 1) and can extend towards the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122. Each of the applicator arms 200 can define a cosmetics surface 210 at a distal end 212 thereof proximate to the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122, which can be configured to receive cosmetics thereon. In the present aspect, the applicator arms 200 can be spaced substantially equidistantly from one another in a linear series, as shown. In other aspects, the applicator arms 200 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation, examples of which are described in further detail below.

[0055] Example aspects of the applicator arms 200 can be formed from a flexible and

resilient material, such as, for example, silicone. Other aspects of the applicator arms 200 can be formed from rubber, plastic, or any other suitable material known in the art. In still other aspects, the applicator arms 200 can be substantially rigid. According to the present aspect, the applicator arms 200 can define a substantially cylindrical shape defining a substantially circular cross-section. However, other aspects of the applicator arms 200 may not define the circle-shaped cross-section, and instead can define a different cross-sectional shape, such as oval or elliptical, rectangle, triangle, diamond, cross-shaped, pentagon, or any other suitable shape, examples of which are described in further detail below.

[0056] Figure 3 depicts a cross-sectional view of the cosmetics brush 100 taken along line 3- 3 in Figure 2. A proximal end 314 of each applicator arm 200 can be attached to the ferrule 112 by an adhesive, clamp, clip, or any other suitable fastener known in the art. For example, in one particular aspect, the proximal ends 314 of the applicator arms 200 can be glued to the engagement face 350 of the ferrule 112. In the present aspect, the second applicator arm 200b can extend from the ferrule 112 generally concentric to a center axis 300 of the cosmetics brush 100, as shown. The first and third applicator arms 200a, c oriented on either side of the second applicator arm 200b can extend from the ferrule 112 radially outward at an acute angle relative to the center axis 300. However, in other aspects, all of the applicator arms 200 can be oriented substantially parallel to one another. Furthermore, as shown, according to example aspects, the cosmetics surface 210 of each applicator arm 200 can be recessed within the corresponding applicator channel 150 relative to the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122, such that the cosmetics surface 210 can be oriented proximate to, but not at, the application end 130. In other aspects, however, the cosmetics surface 210 can be oriented at the application end 130.

[0057] In the present aspect, the cosmetics surface 210 of the applicator arm 200 can be a substantially concave cosmetics surface 312, such that a first reservoir, for example, an applicator arm reservoir 320, is defined by the concave cosmetics surface 312. As shown, the applicator arm reservoir 320 can define a height of Hi. According to example aspects, cosmetics can be received within the applicator arm reservoir 320 on the concave cosmetics surface 312. The cosmetics can be inserted into the applicator arm reservoir 320 through the opening 152 of the corresponding applicator channel 150. According to example aspects, the concave cosmetics surface 312 can aid in preventing spillage of the cosmetics out of the applicator arm reservoir 320, and in some aspects, the size of the applicator arm reservoir 320 can generally indicate an ideal amount of cosmetics to be applied to the concave cosmetics surface 312. Other aspects of the cosmetics surface 210 can define a substantially flat cosmetics surface 912 (shown in Figure 9), such that the cosmetics surface 210 does not define the applicator arm reservoir 320. Still other aspects of the cosmetics surface 210 can define any other suitable profile and may or may not define the applicator arm reservoir 320. In some aspects, the profile of the cosmetics surface 210 can be selected based on the types of cosmetics (e.g., powders, liquids, etc.) for which the cosmetics brush 100 is intended to be used. [0058] In some aspects, such as the present aspect, a second reservoir, such as a channel reservoir 330, can be partly defined by the cosmetics surface 210 of the applicator arm 200 and further defined by the brush fibers 124 defining a corresponding portion of the applicator channel 150. As such, the channel reservoir 330 can extend from cosmetics surface 210 to the opening 152 of the corresponding applicator channel 150, and can encompass the applicator arm reservoir 320 (in aspects where the applicator arm reservoir 320 is present). As such, in the present aspect, the channel reservoir 330 can define a greater volume than the applicator arm reservoir 320 and can define a height of H 2 , as shown, which can be greater than the height Hi of the applicator arm reservoir 320. In some aspects, the size of the channel reservoir 330 can generally indicate an ideal amount of cosmetics to be applied therein.

[0059] Each of the applicator arms 200 of the present aspect is depicted as being substantially the same in size and shape. However, in other aspects, the applicator arms 200 may vary in size and shape. For example, in one particular aspect, the first applicator arm 200a can define a circular cross-section, the second applicator arm 200b can define a triangular cross-section, and the third applicator arm 200c can define a cross-shaped cross-section. Furthermore, in the present aspect, the applicator arm reservoirs 320 are depicted as each defining substantially the same shape and volume, and the channel reservoirs 330 are depicted as each defining substantially the same shape and volume. However, in other aspects, each of the applicator arm reservoirs 320 may vary in shape and volume, and each of the channel reservoirs 330 may vary in shape and volume. For example, in one particular aspect, the cosmetics surfaces 210 of the applicator arms 200 may be recessed within the corresponding applicator channels 150 at varying distances from the corresponding openings 152 to define channel reservoirs 330 of varying heights H 2 and volumes. According to example aspects, the size and shape of applicator arms 200 and the size and shape of the applicator arm reservoir 320 and channel reservoir 330 can be selected based on the types of cosmetics intended to be applied thereto. For example, in one particular aspect, one of the applicator arm reservoirs 320 can define a first volume and can be intended to receive a serum, and another one of the applicator arm reservoirs 320 can define a second volume and can be intended to receive a moisturizer, wherein the second volume can be greater than the first volume.

[0060] Applying cosmetics directly to the brush head 120 of the cosmetics brush 100 can be beneficial, as it can eliminate the need for a user to manually apply cosmetics to the skin. Applying cosmetics to the skin manually can result in the transfer of bacteria from a user’s hands to the skin. Manually applying cosmetics to the skin can also cause stretching of the skin and/or can damage delicate skin areas, such as under the eyes. Furthermore, a benefit of providing the applicator arm(s) 200 for receiving cosmetics thereon is that the applicator arm(s) 200 can aid in locating and retaining the cosmetics close to the application end 130 of the cosmetics brush 100. If cosmetics are not retained proximate the application end 130, they may spread away from the application end 130 towards the ferrule 112 and be inaccessible during application. According to example aspects, applying cosmetics directly to the cosmetics surfaces 210 of the applicator arms 200 (and applying cosmetics within the applicator arm reservoir 320 and/or channel reservoir 330) can provide the additional advantage of indicating an ideal amount of cosmetics to be applied to the cosmetics brush 100. Furthermore, in aspects of the cosmetics brush 100 comprising multiple applicator arms 200, the user can apply multiple types of cosmetics (e.g., liquid foundation, primer, moisturizer, serum, sunscreen, etc.) at once, which can facilitate improved application and blending of the cosmetics with the skin. Blending and applying multiple cosmetics at once can reduce the application time and can improve the level of blending achieved, as opposed to applying each different type of cosmetics to the skin separately and/or manually.

[0061] As such, a method for using the cosmetics brush head 120 can comprise the steps of providing the cosmetics applicator 122 and the first applicator arm 200a nested within the cosmetics applicator 122, wherein the first applicator arm 200a defines the cosmetics surface 210, applying a first cosmetic to the cosmetics surface 210, and engaging the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122 with a user’s skin to apply the first cosmetic to the skin.

In some aspects, the cosmetics applicator 122 can comprise the plurality of brush fibers 124, while in other aspects, the cosmetics applicator 122 can comprise the sponge 1510 (shown in Figure 15), gel silicone, or another suitable material. Example aspects of the cosmetics brush 100 can further comprise the second applicator arm 200b nested within the cosmetics applicator 122, and the method can further comprise applying a second cosmetic to the cosmetics surface 210 of the second applicator arm 200b. In some aspects, the method can further comprise engaging the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122 with the user’s skin to blend and apply the first cosmetic and second cosmetic to the skin

simultaneously. Aspects of the cosmetics brush 100 comprising additional applicator arms 200 (such as the third applicator arm 200c) can comprise additional steps associated with applying cosmetics to the corresponding additional cosmetics surfaces 210 and applying the all of the cosmetics to the user’s skin simultaneously. Some aspects of the method can further comprise providing a brush body 110 and manually gripping the brush body 110 to facilitate applying the cosmetics to the user’s skin. [0062] In other aspects, the applicator arms 200 of the brush head 120 can be arranged in different orientations. For example, Figures 4 illustrates the cosmetics brush 100 according to another aspect of the present disclosure, wherein the first, second, and third applicator arms 200a, b,c (shown in Figure 5) and the corresponding applicator channels 150 are arranged in a triangular pattern around the axis 300 (shown in Figure 6). According to example aspects, the applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200 can be arranged to define an isosceles triangle, as shown, an equilateral triangle, a right triangle, or any other triangular shape. Still other aspects of the applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation. Moreover, in the present aspect, the brush head 120 can define a substantially circular cross-sectional shape, as opposed to the oval-shaped cross-section of the aspect of Figures 1-3. The brush fibers 124 can fan outward from the ferrule 112, such that a diameter of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 can be greater than a diameter of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the restrained ends 126 of the brush fibers 124. The ferrule 112 of the present aspect can also differ from the aspect of Figures 1- 3. For example, the ferrule 112 can define a first ferrule section 414 proximate the brush head 120 and a second ferrule section 416 extending between the first ferrule section 414 and the brush handle 116. In the present aspect, the first ferrule section 414 can define a consistent circular cross-sectional area and the second ferrule section 416 can define a varying circular cross-sectional area, where in the second ferrule section 416 can taper from the first ferrule section 414 to the brush handle 116. In the current aspect, second ferrule section 416 defines a truncated cone.

[0063] Figure 6 illustrates a cross-sectional view of the cosmetics brush 100 taken along line 6-6 in Figure 5. Only one of the applicator arms 200 is visible in the present cross-sectional view. The application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122 can be curved to define the convex application end 132 distal to the ferrule 112. As shown, the size and shape of the applicator arms 200 can be substantially similar to the applicator arms 200 of the aspect of Figures 1-3. However, in the present aspect, all of the applicator arms 200 can extend radially outward at an acute angle from the ferrule 112 relative to the center axis 300 of the cosmetics brush 100. However, in other aspects, some or all of the applicator arms 200 can extend substantially parallel to the center axis 300.

[0064] In some aspects, the brush head 120 can comprise more or fewer applicator arms 200 nested within the cosmetics applicator 122. For example, Figures 7-9 illustrate the cosmetics brush 100 according to another aspect of the present disclosure, wherein the brush head 120 comprises just two applicator arms 200 (shown in Figure 8). Referring to Figure 7, the cosmetics brush 100 can define a similar brush body 110 and a similar cosmetics applicator 122 to the aspect of Figures 4-6. However, the applicator channels 150 formed in the cosmetics applicator 122 of the present aspect can define an elongated cross-sectional shape, as shown, and the corresponding applicator arms 200 can also define an elongated cross- sectional shape. According to example aspects, the elongated applicator channels 150 and elongated applicator arms 200 can be configured to receive more cosmetics therein/thereon, as compared to aspects comprising smaller applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200. For example, referring to Figure 8, each of the two applicator arms 200, which are rectangular in cross-section in the current aspect, can define a length L that can be greater than a width W of the applicator arm 200. The length L of the first applicator arm 200a can extend substantially parallel to the length L of the second applicator arm 200b, as shown; however, in other aspects, the applicator arms 200 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation. Moreover, in other aspects, the applicator arm(s) 200 of the brush head 120 can define any other suitable cross-sectional shape, such as, for example, circular, triangular, diamond-shaped, pentagonal, oval or elliptical, cross-shaped, or any other suitable cross- sectional shape or combination of cross-sectional shapes.

[0065] As shown in Figure 9, the application end 130 of the present aspect can define the convex application end 132. Each of the elongated applicator arms 200 can extend axially relative to the center axis 300 of the cosmetics brush 100, such that the applicator arms 200 can be substantially parallel to the center axis 300 and to each other. In the present aspect, as shown, each of the cosmetics surfaces 210 can define the flat cosmetics surface 912. As such, the applicator arm reservoirs 320 (shown in Figure 3) are not defined in the present aspect; rather, only the channel reservoirs 330 are defined by the flat cosmetics surfaces 912 and the corresponding portions of the applicator channel 150 extending from the corresponding opening 152 to the corresponding flat cosmetics surface 912. In other aspects, however, the cosmetics surface 210 of the elongated applicator arms 200 can define any suitable profile, such as concave or convex. According to various example aspects, as shown, the ferrule 112 can define one or more ferrule channels 914, wherein each of the ferrule channels 914 can be aligned with a corresponding one of the applicator channels 150. Each of the ferrule channels 914 can extend into the engagement face 350 of the ferrule 112 towards the handle 116, as shown. In such an aspect, the proximal ends 314 of the applicator arms 200 can each be retained within a corresponding one of the ferrule channels 914 to secure the applicator arms 200 to the ferrule 112. In some aspects, a fastener, such as an adhesive, can be utilized to secure the applicator arms 200 within the corresponding ferrule channels 914, while in other aspects, each of the applicator arms 200 can be secured within the corresponding ferrule channels 914 by a friction fit, or any other suitable fastener.

[0066] Figures 10-12 illustrate the cosmetics brush 100 in accordance with another aspect of the present disclosure. Referring to Figure 10, as shown, the cosmetics applicator 122 and brush body 110 can be substantially similar to the cosmetics applicator 122 and brush body 110 of the aspect of Figures 4-6. However, in the present aspect, the cosmetics applicator 122 can comprise one or more dome-shaped applicator nubs 1010 extending from the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122. According to example aspects, each of the applicator nubs 1010 can be formed by a grouping of the brush fibers 124 that can have an increased length over the adjacent brush fibers 124, such that the grouping can extend beyond the application end 130. In other aspects, the applicator nubs 1010 may not be dome-shaped and can instead define any other suitable shape extending from the application end 130. Other aspects of the applicator nubs 1010 can also be formed from a different material than the cosmetics applicator 122. For example, in one particular aspect, the cosmetics applicator 122 can comprise the plurality of brush fibers 124 and the applicator nubs 1010 can be comprise a silicone material. In such an aspect, each of the applicator nubs 1010 may define a leg (not shown) extending from the application end 130 to the ferrule 112 to attach the applicator nub 1010 to the cosmetics brush 100. Furthermore, other aspects of the cosmetics applicator 122 can define more or fewer applicator nubs 1010.

[0067] As shown in Figure 11, the applicator nubs 1010 can be arranged in a generally

circular pattern proximate to an outer edge 1110 of the application end 130 and around the axis 300 (shown in Figure 12). In other aspects, the applicator nubs 1010 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation. According to example aspects, the applicator nubs 1010 can provide improved engagement of the application end 130 with a user’s skin to further improve the application and blending of cosmetics on the user’s skin. Furthermore, as shown, the present aspect of the brush head 120 can comprise two applicator arms 200 nested within the plurality of brush fibers 124. Each of the applicator arms 200 can define a substantially circular-sectional shape and can be located within the circular arrangement of the applicator nubs 1010. In other aspects of the cosmetics brush 100, however, the applicator arms 200 and/or applicator nubs 1010 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation.

[0068] Figure 12 is a cross-sectional view of the cosmetics brush 100 taken along line 12-12 in Figure 11. As shown, in the present aspect, the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122 can define the substantially flat application end 1232. According to the present aspect, the substantially flat application end 1232 can be substantially orthogonal to the center axis 300. In other aspects, the application end 130 can be convex, or can define any other suitable profile. In some aspects, the profile of the application end 130 can be selected based on the types of cosmetics for which the cosmetics brush 100 is intended to be used in order to improve the application of the cosmetics, as well as for aesthetic considerations. The two applicator arms 200 can extend from the ferrule 112 substantially parallel to the center axis 300 and to each other, and the corresponding cosmetics surfaces 210 thereof can each define a concave cosmetics surface 312. Additionally, according to the present aspect, the ferrule 112 can comprise the ferrule channels 914 extending into the engagement face 350 thereof. The proximal end 314 of each of the cylindrical applicator arms 200 can be received within a corresponding one of the ferrule channels 914 to secure the applicator arms 200 to the ferrule 112.

[0069] Figure 13 illustrates the cosmetics brush 100 according to another aspect of the

present disclosure, wherein the brush head 120 comprises two substantially cylindrical applicator arms 200 nested within the cosmetics applicator 122, which is this case comprises the plurality of brush fibers 124. Each of the applicator arms 200 can extend substantially parallel to the center axis 300. In some example aspects, as shown, the cosmetics brush 100 may not include the handle 116 (shown in Figure 1). In such an aspect, the ferrule 112 can serve as the handle 116 or as a grip for gripping the cosmetics brush 100 during the application of cosmetics. Moreover, as shown, in the present aspect, the application end 130 of the cosmetics applicator 122 can define the substantially flat application end 1232. Figure 14 illustrates the cosmetics brush 100 according to another aspect of the present disclosure, wherein the cosmetics brush 100 is substantially similar to the cosmetics brush 100 of Figure 13, but wherein the cosmetics applicator 122 can define a substantially convex application end 132 and wherein each of the applicator arms 200 can extend radially outward from the ferrule 112 at an acute angle relative to the center axis 300.

[0070] Figure 15 illustrates the cosmetics brush 100 according to another aspect of the

present disclosure. As shown, in the present aspect, the cosmetics applicator 122 of the brush head 120 can comprise the sponge 1510 instead of the plurality of brush fibers 124 (shown in Figure 1). Similar to the aspects of the cosmetics applicator 122 previously described, one or more of the applicator channels 150 can be formed in the sponge 1510. For example, in the present aspect, three applicator channels 150 can be formed in the sponge 1510 and arranged in a substantially linear series, and each applicator channel 150 can define a substantially diamond-shaped cross-section. A corresponding applicator arm 200 defining a diamond- shaped cross-section can be received within each of the applicator channels 150. Furthermore, the sponge 1510 illustrated herein can define the substantially flat application end 1232; however, other aspects of the sponge 1510 can define any other suitable profile, such as convexly or concavely curved. In the present aspect, each of applicator arms 200 can extend axially from the ferrule 112, such that each of the applicator arms 200 can be oriented substantially parallel to the center axis 300 and to each other. Other aspects of the sponge 1510 can define more or fewer applicator channels 150 and more or fewer applicator arms 200, and in other aspects, the applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation.

[0071] Figure 16 illustrates another aspect of the cosmetics brush 100, according to the

present disclosure. The cosmetics brush 100 can be substantially similar to the cosmetics brush 100 of Figure 13; however, as shown, the size, shape, and amount of applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200 (shown in Figure 2) can differ. In the present aspect, the brush head 120 can comprise three applicator arms 200 that can be received within three corresponding applicator channels 150. Each of the applicator arms 200 and applicator channels 150 can define an elliptical cross-section, and can be arranged in a substantially linear series, as shown. Example aspects of the applicator arms 200 can extend parallel to the center axis 300 or can be oriented at an acute angle thereto. Each of the applicator arms 200 can further define the cosmetics surface 210 (shown in Figure 2), and the cosmetics surface 210 can be concave, flat, convex, or can define any other suitable profile. In some aspects, each or some of the cosmetics surfaces 210 can define varying cross-sectional shapes. The application end 130 of the present aspect is shown as the flat application end 1232; however, other aspects of the application end 130 can be concave, convex, or define any other suitable profile.

[0072] Figure 17 illustrates another aspect of the cosmetics brush 100 in accordance with the present disclosure. The present cosmetics brush 100 again can be similar to the cosmetics brush 100 of Figure 13, but the size, shape, and amount of applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200 can be different, as shown. For example, the present brush head 120 can comprise a single applicator arm 200 and the cosmetics applicator 122 can define a single applicator channel 150 for receiving the applicator arm 200 therein. According to example aspects, the applicator arm 200 can define a cross-shaped cross-section. The applicator arm 200 and the applicator channel 150 can be concentric with the center axis 300 in the present aspect; however, in other aspects, the applicator arm 200 and applicator channel 150 may not be concentric to the center axis 300. Moreover, in other aspects comprising a single applicator arm 200, the applicator arm 200 can define any other suitable cross-sectional shape, including, but not limited to, oval or elliptical, circular, triangular, rectangular, etc.

The single applicator arm 200 can be oriented parallel to the center axis 300 or at an acute angle relative to the center axis 300, and can define a cosmetics surface 210 of any suitable profile (e.g., flat, convex, concave, etc.).

[0073] Figure 18 illustrates another aspect of the cosmetics brush 100 in accordance with the present disclosure. The cosmetics brush 100 is similar to the cosmetics brush 100 of Figure 17; however, the cross-sectional shape of the applicator arm 200 and the applicator channel 150 can be different. The applicator arm 200 can comprise a substantially cylindrical core 1802 defining a substantially circular cross-section. A plurality of ribs 1804 each defining a substantially rectangular cross-section can extend radially outward from the cylindrical core 1802 relative to the center axis 300. For example, in the present aspect, four ribs 1804 can be circumferentially spaced about the cylindrical core 1802, as shown. The applicator channel 150 can define a cross-sectional shape substantially matching the cross-sectional shape of the applicator arm 200. In the present aspect, the applicator arm 200 can be substantially parallel and concentric with the center axis 300, though it may be non-parallel and/or non-concentric with the center axis 300 in other aspects.

[0074] Figures 19 illustrates another example aspect of the cosmetics brush 100 in

accordance with the present disclosure. In the present aspect, the brush head 120 can define a substantially circular cross-sectional shape, and the brush fibers 124 can fan outward from the ferrule 112, such that a diameter of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 can be greater than a diameter of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the restrained ends 126 of the brush fibers 124. Furthermore, in the present aspect, the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 can define a substantially flat and slanted application end 1932. For example, as shown, the flat and slanted application end 1932 can be angled relative to the center axis 300 at an angle a, wherein a can be an acute angle, as shown. As such, a height of the brush head 120 can taper. Figure 20 illustrates a top view of the cosmetics brush 100 of Figure 19. The cosmetics brush 100 can comprise the first, second, and third applicator arms 200a, b,c, which can be arranged in a triangular pattern around the center axis 300, as shown. According to example aspects, the applicator arms 200a, b,c can be arranged to define an equilateral triangle, as shown, an isosceles triangle, a right triangle, or any other triangular shape. Still other aspects of the applicator channels 150 and applicator arms 200 can be arranged in any other suitable orientation.

The first and second applicator arms 200a, b are depicted in the present cross-sectional view. In the present aspect, each of the first, second, and third applicator arms 200a, b,c can extend substantially parallel to the center axis 300, as shown; however, in other aspects, some or all of the applicator arms 200a, b,c, may not extend substantially parallel to the center axis 300. In the present aspect, the cosmetics surface 210 of each of the applicator arms 200a, b,c can define the concave cosmetics surface 312, though in other aspects, some or all of the applicator arms 200a, b,c may define the flat cosmetics surface 912 (shown in Figure 9) or any other suitable profile.

[0076] As shown, the first applicator arm 200a can extend to a first height Hi, and the second and third applicator arms 200b, c can extend to a second height H 2 , wherein the second height H 2 can be greater than the first height Hi. Moreover, the cosmetics surfaces 210 of the first applicator arm 200a can be recessed within the corresponding applicator channel 150 at a distance Di from the corresponding opening 152, and the second and third applicator arms 200b, c can be recessed within the corresponding applicator channels 150 at a distance D 2 from the corresponding openings 152. In the present aspect, the distance Di can be about equal to the distance D 2. That is to say, each of the cosmetics surfaces 210 of the applicator arms 200a, b,c can be positioned at about an equal distance from the flat and slanted application end 1932. However, in other aspects, the cosmetics surfaces 210 may be recessed within the corresponding applicator channels 150 at varying distances.

[0077] Figures 22 and 23 illustrate the cosmetics brush 100 according to another example aspect of the present disclosure. As shown, the brush head 120 can define a substantially oval-shaped cross-section, and the brush fibers 124 can fan outward from the ferrule 112, such that a width of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 can be greater than a width of the cosmetics applicator 122 at the restrained ends 126. In the present aspect, the free ends 128 of the brush fibers 124 can define the substantially flat application end 1232. The cosmetics brush 100 can further comprise a pair of the applicator arms 200. In some aspects, the applicator arms 200 can extend to the substantially flat application end 1232, while in other aspects, the applicator arms 200 may be recessed from the substantially flat application end 1232. Furthermore, in some aspects, some or all of the applicator arms 200 can define the concave cosmetics surface 312 (shown in Figure 3), while in other aspects, some or all of the applicator arms 200 can define the flat cosmetics surface 912 (shown in Figure 9). Other aspects of the cosmetics brush 100 can define more or fewer applicator arms 200. Furthermore, each of the cosmetics surfaces 210 can define any other suitable profile or can define varying profiles. [0078] Figure 24-26 illustrate another aspect of the cosmetics brush 100, wherein the application end 130 of the brush head 120 defines the convex application end 132. Referring to the top view of Figure 25, the cosmetics brush can comprise a pair of the applicator arms 200 nested within the brush head 120. Example aspects of the brush head 120 can define a substantially oval-shaped cross section. Figure 26 is a cross-sectional view of the cosmetics brush 100 taken along line 26-26 in Figure 25. As shown, each of the applicator arms 200 can define the concave cosmetics surface 312. The concave cosmetics surface 312 of each applicator arm 200 can be recessed within the corresponding applicator channel 150 at a distance D 3 from the corresponding top opening 152. Each of the concave cosmetics surfaces 312 can define a one of the applicator arm reservoirs 320. Furthermore, each of the concave cosmetics surfaces 312 and the corresponding portion of the applicator channel 150 extending between the top opening 152 and the cosmetics surface 210 can define a one of the channel reservoirs 330.
