Can anyone tell me-does stick deodorant and stick makeup fall into the "gel" category for carry-ons? Or are they considered a solid and not required to be in the little baggie? I won't be checking any luggage this trip, as we are traveling very light.

Check the permissible list here:

I believe it is regularly updated.

From the TSA website-"You are permitted to bring solid cosmetics and personal hygiene items as such lipstick, lip balm and similar solids."

That's all it says. Does this mean you DON'T have to put these items in the baggie? If they scan my bag and see a metal tube of solid makeup, will this cause my bag to be searched and slow things down?

I would suggest you bring baggies with you and be prepared. Each airport I've arrived or departed from has been different--even though we have TSA guidelines.

Cool Who Knows ?

Nobody really knows whats going on with TSA, they don't even know . It seems that every time you turn around they change the rules, "again and again and again". But now, you can understand what they are saying to you, they spek good engrish now, joe. I heard that they removed a little old lady from a plane in Cleveland. It seems that she had a pair knitting needles on her. They were afraid she'd try to knit an Afghan-"istanian" while in flight . HAR! HAR! HAR!

as far as I know, all liquids and gels including colognes, perfumes, toothpaste, deodorants, shampoos, etc are not allowed in checked or carryon baggage.

No, this info is wrong, liquids ARE allowed in no larger than a 3 oz size. This for everything including cosmetics, medicines, etc. You can take a solid stick of deodorant. Have all meds in baggies along w/ other stuff that is liquid in nature. And yes at each airport they want it different. I had all meds in their box w/ the prescription label and everything was fine on 3 flights and on the 4th they wanted it OUT of the box.

I was just looking through the TSA site. Wow.
Well, at least they allow nail clippers now.
I had completely forgotten that mascara is actually a liquid.
I am not exactly a high maintenance woman, but it is really dawning on me just how ridiculous this whole scenario is...I am strictly a carryon backpack person, have been for many years, but then, the last time I had to fly was late July, last summer.

What is really kind of funny and recenlty Saturday Night Live did a skit on this and it was soooooo true. They only allow liquids in amounts of 3oz as they said some things can be mixed to become toxic or make makeshift bombs. Like 5 oz of this and 5 oz of that mixed can be bad. So what says that 3 oz is good and 4 oz is bad? What keeps 3 passangers from sitting beside each other each getting their designated 3 oz liquid out and mixing it up to become 9 oz? LOL!!!

Yes.
You get the feeling that this whole TSA thing is silly, not-very-well-thought-out window dressing to make us feel "safer."
All it really does is infuriate me.
