Good Question: What Cosmetics Can I take on the Plane?

May 21, 2007 by SHEfinds Editor

After last week’s terror scare — the airlines are prohibiting liquids, gels and lotions in carry-on luggage Lipsticks and laptops are once again allowed past the screeners, but still banned are tubes of mascara, lip gloss, perfume, shaving cream, liquid foundation, hair gel and toothpaste. Even massaging gel insoles are banned! Gel-enhanced bras are a no-no too, though we can’t figure out how they’re screening those. Get the list here.

The list of banned items can change almost daily, and security personnel have discretionary powers so don’t take anything that you aren’t prepared to toss.

Personally, I’m determined to avoid the slow revolving hell of the baggage carousel, so I’m packing these products in a see-through Ziploc for my weekend jaunt on Jet Blue.

UPDATE: As of September 2006, the TSA has significantly loosened restrictions on what you can take on board an aircraft. Still, especially when traveling internationally, officials are very picky. The 3-ounce rule still holds for all liquids, aerosols and gels, and you must be able to pack all of your carry-on toiletries in one quart-size clear, plastic bag.

1. Longcils Boncza Longcilclassic Cake Mascara, Noir

2. Geluscious Gloves and Gel Terry Booties

3. Susan Posnick Colorfloicon (foundation with SPF 26!)
