Is lipstick part of 100 mil allowance when flighing?

Just wondering if anyone knows if lipstick forms part of the 100mil allowance you are allowed to take on a plane? I would expect lip gloss to be part of it as it is more fluid than a lipstick

I've never put lipstick in the 1 litre baggie. I once asked and was told it was fine. Lip gloss might be a different proposition as it's a gel.

I went through Sydney in jan and they made me add to the bag. This has happened several times in different airports as I always forget I keep a spare tube in a zipper compartment

Its still a gel.

It varies a lot depending where you're travelling. Heck it even varies in the same country. Some security people insist it goes in the bag and others don't. Just make sure there is space for it to go in the bag, in case you have to put it in.

I always put it in the little bag just to avoid delays. As mentioned, some places consider it a liquid/gel, others don't, so to avoid being pulled aside to have my bag checked, it's easier to just pop it in the bag with my other make-up.
