It is, therefore, an object of the present inven
tion to provide a lipstick‘holder of simpletype
requiring few parts through which the lipstick
can be readily projected in a simple operation
only requiring the use of one hand.
A further object of'the invention is to provide
a lipstick holder of this character which‘ is sym
metrical throughout and avoids projections of
any kind.
A still further object of the invention is to pro
vide a construction wherein the actual lipstick
holder as distinct from the ‘casing therefor is of
such simple and inexpensive construction that it
can be discarded when the lipstick has been used
to the maximum degree and a new holder carry

is not of great strength. The present invention
avoids the disadvantage of such a projection
while at the same time facilitates operation with
one hand as the opening is su?iciently large to ex- ’
pose a substantial part of the underlying holder
whereas the opening is positioned intermediate
the ends of the shell and, therefore, in a position
where the shell may be readily balanced in the
hand and easily operated. Such operation is
sometimes difficult with the conventional holder
where the projection is usually placed adjacent
the bottom of the holder and thus rendered more
di?icult to operate in this manner.
Finally, it will be apparent that the construc
tion lends itself to two further advantages. On
