How does it work with carrying make-up in one's carry-on? Are there any difficulties doing this?
as long as it's under the liquid limit, can't remember what it is in the US- 100mls in UK it can go in a ziplock bag and be scanned separately. I always put my mascara in there- not sure if it's classed as liquid or not but never had a problem
no tweezers... at least they took mine last time
I always carry tweezers.
I'm guessing that lipgloss is considered a liquid.
Can we put disposable razors in our carry-ons?
I wouldn't think so
I did a little bit more investigating and lipgloss IS a liquid, and disposable razors ARE allowed. Weird.
Ok tweezers are a no, but I can take razors?? What a strange world!
That's why it's so confusing. I just know that I don't want to show up at the airport with what I think I can have only to find out I have to throw away something since I can't bring it aboard.
I carry my makeup bag onto the plane. It has foundation which is liquid. I never take it out and they never say a word about it.
Also I have a small toiletry kit that I now carry on (getting stuck overnight in Charlotte makes you bring a lot if stuff with you lol). It has a disposable razor in it. Again they say nothing.
And I have a small bag that has a small lotion and anti bacterial lotion in it. Never take it out and they never say anything.
Of course I always get patted down when leaving Richmond. Bigger airports don't do that to me.
Your mileage may vary.
I used to fly every week up and down the eastern seaboard mostly, but cross country from time to time too. The only absolute is that the application of the rules vary at each airport! Used to aggravate me to death.
3.2 ounces for anything considered liquid or looks like wax (lipstick, etc). Nothing that can be determined to be used as a weapon. That's where it gets tricky. I've carried plastic crochet hooks on, but not metal...
I used to have an assistant who flew with a handgun. I didn't know anything about it until one airport scanned her checked luggage and found it and made her take it out. (I about darn croaked). They made her leave the airport and buy special trigger locks and then reported MCO for allowing her to fly with it without the locks.
You simply never really know what they are going to take from you, or let you go with.
My mom flew down to Orlando this past Nov. She doesn't carry a purse but has this little wallet thing. She cleaned it out and thought she had brought her drivers license. Nope she had her Veteran's Administration card that specifically states "not a valid ID". The Richmond airport took her back and questioned her repeatedly about all sorts of stuff and decided she was ok to fly.
MCO? The TSA guy took a look at it. Said he'd never seen one of those and asked if you could only get it in Virginia. Then let her on through.
