Is Makeup Permitted in a Carryon?? TSA Website Not Precise Enough

Jump to last reply

Help! Has anyone gone through security lately with any of these items? Tube of lipstick, creamy foundation and rouge, mascara, creamy concealer, eyeshadow? I have a extremely quick daytrip I have to make tomorrow to film a video (no, I'm not famous!) I am just taking my purse, no luggage whatsover. How in the world do I tell if any of this is prohibited, and what in the world can I do if any of it is?? The TSA website does not specifically say no lipstick - it says, "No liquid lipgloss;" "liquid foundation" is forbidden, but mine is in a very small tube and it's creamy. I am not in the mood to get there with everything and have to throw any of it out! For goodness sake, they'll let me wear a "gel bra," but I can't have a gram of concealer? I have to be able to put fresh makeup on when I get to my destination and I'm on an extremely tight schedule when I land - I'm only on the ground about two hours, so no time to shop when I get there.

Is this a dilemma or what! Please advise on anyone's recent experience!
