QUEENS — A TSA officer at LaGuardia Airport recently discovered a new meaning to the phrase “beauty is pain.”
According to TSA officials, a traveler was stopped at airport security after the officer found a tube of lipstick in their bag that was not lipstick at all, but a knife.
Instead of lipstick, a twist of the accessory revealed a razor-sharp blade, officials said.
“If it was lipstick, the color would be what, blood red?” wrote TSA Spokesperson Lisa Farbstein in a tweet, along with an image of the hidden weapon.
It was not made clear whether the traveler faced any charges for attempting to take the blade on the aircraft.
