Re latest *cough* emergency requiring that women not fly with cosmetics:
Lipstick was quickly declared legit here after hundreds of angry phone calls by women of power--yet is still VERY DANGEROUS in Britain. Mascara, however, is apparently one of the scariest substances in the universe.

It's been known to happen, she says, batting her eyelashes :)
Osama: safe enough we disband the group looking for him.
Mascara: the new enemy.
I rest my case, and apparently I also rest my cosmetics case…
