Title: Packaging cases for a cosmetic product with improved ergonomics

Abstract: A cosmetic case, in an embodiment, comprises a lid provided with a mirror and fitted with a first hinge portion, a hollow bottom adapted to contain at least one cosmetic product, the bottom including a second hinge portion, (wherein a hinge with rotation axis R is formed by cooperation between the first and second hinge portions), a snap closure and an applicator. The cosmetic case is characterized in that: a) the case is quadrangular in shape with four corners and two approximately parallel gripping sides defining a longitudinal direction, and b) the rotation axis R is located in one of the four corners, such that when the case is open, the lid in which the mirror is fitted is offset from the bottom, the bottom being held by one hand on the approximately parallel gripping sides.
