No More Crying Over Confiscated Cosmetics at Security: The TSA-Proof Beauty Packing

June 25, 2010 by Justine Schwartz

If you’ve ever had your favorite cosmetics confiscated at airport security, you know how tragic it is (and may have even shed a tear in public) as you left it behind. Since the phrase “under 3 oz.” is now a part of our vocabulary, we’ve vowed never to lose a Rosebud lip balm or Lancome mascara ever again (true stories). Here is a TSA-proof guide to packing:

Since hotel conditioners offer little to no moisture (aka they suck), I always need to bring my own. This Condition Serious Volume Mini, 2.1 fl oz. ($8) is amazing and works double time; the product makes hair super soft, without compromising on volume.

We love that this SPF 30+ Everyday UV Slim Travel Tube ($12) is for both face and hands – and how slim the packaging is. More room for shoes.

You don’t need to go perfume-less on vacation again: rollerballs are the secret of every chic traveler. You will love the sexy, floral smell of Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Rollerball 0.33 oz ($22), without worrying about catastrophic spillage in your luggage.

How’s this for multi-tasking in a mini-bottle? Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal ($30) moisturizes, conceals, illuminates and has SPF 20 protection. That’s at least 3 bottles of facial product you don’t have to pack.

Mix and match the 2 oz. bottles in this great Philosophy The Travel Agent ($35). Our favorite product from the kit is the Amazing Grace Shampoo, Bath, and Shower Gel – a great-smelling, three-in-one that you will love.

Throw your quality products in a quality case like this kate spade new york Big Apple Travel Cosmetic Case ($50). The pink-lined bag is light years beyond Ziploc.

If you need help packing the rest of your bag, check out our guides to inexpensive shoes, overnight bags, sample sale, shapewear reviews.
