Am not sure where exactly does this post fit whether here or in traveling section, but I know some places doesn't allow to carry cosmetics along with you in airplane.

I am flying with delta this weekend to another state and I have to carry liquid foundation, powdered foundation, lipstick, face cream/lotion and eye liner with me. Somewhere I had read petroleum jelly is not allowed on plane and I read some cosmetics have petroleum jelly in it. I used to checkin my bags always so never had any problem. But this time, I am just flying somewhere for a day and don't wish to put money in bag checkin just for cosmetics.

Are these allowed to be carried along in plane?

Yes. You can look on the tsa.gov to see what is currently allowed.

From TSA.gov:

You may carry liquids, gels and aerosols in your carry-on bags only if they adhere to the 3-1-1 rule: containers must be 3.4 ounces or less; stored in a 1 quart/liter zip-top bag; 1 zip-top bag per person, placed in the screening bin. Larger amounts of non-medicinal liquids, gels, and aerosols must be placed in checked baggage.

There's no problem with petroleum jelly. Your liquid foundation and lotion will need to go in your 3-1-1 quart sized bag. The rest can be carried however you want.

Anything you don't want taken, put in that qt. zip-lock bag! Petroleum jelly isn't prohibited, as long as it's not over 3.4 oz! Same with all liquids/gels....unless it's medication.

Only the face lotion and liquid foundation would really be considered liquids. Maybe the eyeliner. Unless you are bringing way more than you need, you could just put it all in a clear plastic bag and you should have no trouble being under the limit. Although honestly, I'm sure I've gone through security with some mascara or eye liner laying somewhere in the bottom of my purse and it's never been an issue.

Why wouldn't be allowed? Do your cosmetic supplies come in big bottles? Any normal-sized cosmetics are allowed.

A full-size bottle of shampoo or something wouldn't be allowed. But most travel-sized personal care items are fine, as well as most standard-sized cosmetics. As long as they are stowed correctly.

But like others say, I've definitely gone through with tubes of lipbalm, hand sanitizer, etc. in my purse, and not had an issue, is it happens. Anything you don't want to risk having to throw out at the gate, though, just make sure it's of the aforementioned size and in a Ziploc.

I haven't checked a bag in years, and always fly with my makeup. I usually just put the basics into a smaller cosmetic bag and have never been questioned. I don't think I normally even take it out of my purse... But if you want to be cautious, just put them in a zip lock bag, and you'll be fine.

The only time when I've had anything confiscated by TSA was when I had an unopened jar of peanut butter. TSA said it was considered a liquid and wasn't allowed.
