If Forced To Toss Your Makeup at Airport Security, Would You...

Happy Birthday, Jessica! Looks like the blonde-again Miss Simpson came prepared to fly as she eased her way through airport security with a plastic baggie filled with FDA-approved liquids (that's three ounces or under, for those not-so-frequent-fliers out there). I am dying to see what she's got in that Zip-loc bag, but I can't manage to zoom in far enough to recognize anything. Are you as calm as Jess when you go through security?

i'm ruthless when it comes to this stuff. i travel with cheap airline a lot, so they have this ridiculous wight limits, so if i'm over it i'll put 3 pairs of pants on my just to make it through (i love going shopping so i buy new stuff at the destination and then have no space for my stuff). and i wouldn't put it behind me putting my lipgloss in my underwear if needed.

I would throw a hissy fit. I already bought all these products and now I need to throw them out and buy more when I get where I'm going. I hate trying to find a store that sells the product you want. You are supposed to relax on vacation.

I would calmly hand them my products because if I don't I wouldn't be able to get on the plane.

Regarding the lipgloss issue one time I realized when I was in the line that I had my Dior lipgloss and almost had a heartattack, I just put it in my jean pocket and voila -- it made it back with me. (wink)

Okay - can't you always send the items to yourself at home so you don't have to throw them away. I choose this option, E I suppose. Also, I would make sure I knew the rules before bringing my makeup on a plane. Makeup is too expensive to just throw away.

I would die if I had to toss out my make up! I'm sure I would give in because I wouldn't want to be arrested or miss my flight but it'd be a sad sad day.

Absolutely do NOT throw a hissy fit!! The last thing you need it to be dragged away by security guards over a bottle of shampoo.

They'd all be travel size anyway.

Calmly hand over your products and understand that security is just doing its job.

i read up on the regs. generally don't care except when traveling to europe, etc. the longer the flight the more you miss lotion, lip balm, toothpaste and face moisturizer. due to connections, i prefer to travel with my bag - there's nothing worse than traveling for hours and then arriving at your hotel with no bag. those are the times when it's hard for me to edit my make up for carry on.

I went to california and I had some tressemme hair styling products in my suitcase. They were checked before they went on the plane. When I got to cali, my suitcase was leaking. I opened it up, and the damn security people didn't even close the liquids!!! Most things were soaked. At least tressemme is cheap.

haha, when i was going through security in Puerto Rico, a girl was standing at the end, with 3 bottles of liqour, make up, shampoo, perfume, toiletries, etc....and they were throwing IT ALL away. she was so pissed and kept grbbing for it, and the security lady kept swatting her hand away haha. sucks.

o and also if the makeup can b just put in ur suitcase to go under the plane cant terrorists still blow up the plane? they dont need the bomb right with them to detinate it, and they do it with liquids now dont they?
hills hills 9 years
i did say calmly hand them over because 1, its for everyones safty and thats the main thing, 2. they're only doing theyre job and 3. i would rather they b safe than sorry, i wouldnt want to get blown up just so everyone can wear make up. but i know id b pissed off. i dont want my makeup taken away, but can u take mascara or a eye pencil or smthing? and also can u still buy makeup on the plane?

check it in, it's just not worth the hassle.

Yes, Chiquita. Anything that is bigger than 3 oz should go in your checked luggage (the one that goes under the plane), and they won't confiscate it.

Girls i wanna ask you something since i didn't fly after the regulations were put in place. -Can we put full size liquids (like toniques, eye makeup removers...) in our luggage? So i mean the bag which is not staying with us during the flight. I won't need shampoos, toniques before i land, so i think i can put them in my luggage if there won't be any problem...

I would definitely leave any makeup that was 3 oz or over in my checked bags. However, I have recently brought things through security (on about 3 or 4 occasions) that were over 3 oz (like 3.1 or 3.5) such as a little bottle of contact solution (the only one I could find in the store) and they didn't confiscate it - although I am ALWAYS completely ready to throw it away if asked to. I usually need my contact solution for the plane, and the bottle is usually half empty anyways since I use that one for travelling, so I dont' care if they want me to throw it away. It's what Vogue was talking about earlier though, when they scold you or are patronising or condescending - that's super annoying. That happened to me when I was going through security, they have this checkpoint right before where they check your boarding pass and passport. I was preparing by taking out my laptop so I wouldn't have to fuss when I got up to the machine and the woman started yelling, "ONLY 2 CARRY ON ITEMS PER PERSON!" and I looked at her calmly and said, "I'm just taking out my laptop to put in the tray" and she flipped out and said I couldn't go past her if I had my laptop in my hands so I put my laptop back in my bag, she checked my passport, I walked two feet in front of her and took it out again. Since I had to! Jeeez. Oh well, TSA is not exactly trained for customer service, as it's not their first priority, it's safety of other passengers blah blah blah ...

I've taken to checking my makeup, except a few essentials in my checked luggage, risky, I know, but now way in hell am I throwing out my cosmetics, security risks or not, somethings are just wrong!
vanyvrgs vanyvrgs 9 years
Check them in... that is what I do. Nothing more annoying that having to wait in luggage claim but all for beauty....

I'd make sure to pack travel sizes -- no way I'm throwing out perfectly good makeup.

uhhh...the hissy fit (and the humiliation and embarrassment from getting your items confiscated as well as for your reaction) would've been easily prevented if youd done your research BEFORE going on the plane!
