I’m very new to the Bee! I just wanted to get some opinions and input on packing cosmetics/make-up for a trip by plane. Thing is, it’s been quite some time since I’ve been on a plane! I think the last time I’ve flown was when I was in 8th grade with my family. So about 10 years ago (I’m 23)! I know, terrible and sad! I just never really had the opportunity to fly because of school, work, family, and money .
But now I’m finally going on a plane, this time w/ my fiance.
I’m not a big fan of packing my stuff in checked luggage just because of the terrible stories of having things stolen and the hassle of securely packing things with plastic to keep it from exploding and spilling. *But* it would be great if you can give me some tips if I WERE to pack in checked luggage!
I mostly am thinking of taking my cosmetics, and most of them are liquid and under the 3.4 oz limit, so they’re going in the quart size liquids bag.
-Do I put my lipsticks in the quart size bag? I’ve read yes and no on the internet.
-Can I put my lipstick and pencil eyeliner in my purse? How about a concealer palette? The concealer palette is packaged in rectangle shaped packaging, about the size of a half ruler (it says 0.24 oz total) on the packaging. Can that go in the liquids bag or my purse?
-I’m flying from JFK airport in NY
-Have you ever had anything(cosmetics) confiscated from your quart size bag or searched, even if they met the 3.4oz/100ml limit? I’m scared of getting my stuff taken away to be thrown out and I don’t want to leave them home as I use them on a daily basis.
Ladies, can you please share how you pack your cosmetics?
ETA: Thanks ladies so far for your help!! Seriously appreciate it! One more thing (sounds stupid): after you go through security, do you put your quart size bag back into your carry on or can you put it into your purse? For example, if I wanted to touch up on the plane before landing with a liquid product, do I have to go back into my carry on and dig it out? (very noob question lol) I will have access to my quart bag while on the plane, right?
