In the field of microprisms
, JP2013101257A (The identification method of an optical member and this optical member, identification information reproducing apparatus, and an authentication apparatus) from synthetic products manufacturer Kuraray discloses an optical unit provided with several slopes which have the function to transmit or reflect light.
All have a fixed focusing screen with a fine-matte ring around the central microprism
or split-image area.
This technology works by depositing microprisms
of light-reflective, colored crystalp articles onto lashes for subtle yet striking color and luster," notes Cheryl Vitali, executive vice president and general manager of the Revlon Global Brand Equity Group.
The brush-on lipstick comes in eight shades with holographic microprisms
to create luminous lips as well as vitamins A, C and E and SPF 15.
