When you’re headed to the runway (the airport—not the fashionable kind) there’s good news. A makeup revolution is taking place. Gone are the days when travelers poured makeup into drugstore-purchased plastic containers to satisfy TSA requirements. There will be no more sacrificing tubes of mascara or face cleanser because they weigh too much be transported in a carry on.
Say hello to TSA-approved high end cosmetics. While sample-sized makeup has been around for a while as free bonuses for cosmetic purchases, the country’s top beauty firms are heralding lines of new one to four ounce sizes in their advertising. That means you can look your fashion-model best with your beloved brands of makeup.
Take Lancôme for instance. You can now purchase their top-selling Absolue day cream in .5, 1.7 and 2.6 ounce packaging. The company recently added the words “TSA-approved” to their print advertising.
Tired of liquid eye makeup remover spilling? Sephora offers a waterproof eye makeup remover in 1.69 ounce or 4.2 ounce sizes.
As an avid traveler, I have said farewell to security mishaps when it comes to my makeup. I recommend keeping your quart ziplock bag either in the long center pocket of your handbag’s Purse Perfector or in the outside pocket of your carry on. Although I am TSA and Global Entry-approved, I still maintain the plastic bag. Rules change too quickly.
As for my mini makeup, they all have perfect spots in my Purse Perfector. The smaller sizes fit perfectly in the Purse Perfector’s tailored pockets along with lipstick, gloss and lip pencil. The shorter front sections are perfect for mini sizes of hand sanitizer, my Tide To-Go Pen, tube of ibuprofen, and mini pack of tissues. Unlike a professional model’s ongoing dieting to lose weight, you can lose weight—purse weight—simply by switching to mini/travel sizes of makeup and other beauty essentials in your Purse Perfector.
