By now I'm sure that there are very few of you left that has been able to avoid the against your will 'product dump'. That's when you bring your favorite, must have at ALL times beauty or skincare product with you and the fine folks at the airport either 'confiscate' it, or literally dump it in a big bin right before your eyes!
Not even celebrities have been immune to this outrage, and several famous comedians have even included this horror into standup, garnering big laughs because we all can relate.
And whether your must have is a $10 drugstore beauty item or a $1,000 face cream, the pain is the same when the item is taken from you (and in some cases, ripped from your clutches as you scream 'YOUR DAY WILL COME!!!') ;)
So how do you bring your favorites along with you and get them past the ever watchful eyes of the TSA? Samples of course. Yes that right sample sizes in CLEAR see through TSA regulation cosmetic kit cases!
I know what you are thinking right now, but Ascending Butterfly, what if your local cosmetic counter won't give you any samples, or (*cough*) has run out of them?
Have no fear my butterflies, Sephora is here. They have found a great way to allow you to bring your favorite beauty must haves with you and not even raise a suspicious eye brow from the always vigilant scanner, it's called 'Sephora Favorites'.
