A method of applying makeup by means of a vibrating applicator
European Patent Application EP2316302
Publication date: May 4, 2011
The inventors of this patent have developed a vibrating applicator for applying a cosmetic composition that comprises an applicator element that is elastically compressible and/or porous, and a vibration source for the applicator. The applicator is fastened onto a receptacle containing the composition to be applied. The makeup composition may be applied to nails, skin, keratinous fibers such as the eyelashes or eyebrows, lips, the face, etc. According to the patent, the composition is different from toothpastes and body scrubs and in particular may contain inedible pigments. The invention may reportedly be useful when the product to apply has a high viscosity.

US Patent 7935358
Publication date: May 3, 2011
Assignee: Kao Corp.
Disclosed in this invention is a cosmetic skin preparation comprising a porous powder that contains water absorbed therein, and whose surface is coated with a binder containing a cross-linked type organopolysiloxane. The skin preparation can reportedly continually suppress the stickiness caused by sebum while giving a cooling sensation, thus mitigating the discomforts of oily skin. In addition, it is suitable as a cosmetic preparation for the removal of sebum or as a cosmetic preparation for the concealment of unevenness such as pores, wrinkles and the like. Furthermore, it exhibits excellent storage stability.
