Cargo Plant Love Eyeliner’s ($16) soft, creamy texture glides on smoother than a ’90s Babyface ballad, and just like one of his sexy slow jams, it holds up well over time.
If I swipe some on my lash line before my first cup of coffee in the morning, Plant Love’s rich color lasts until my last gulp of Sleepytime tea at night.
Fans of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils might find a lot to like about Plant Love. It has a similar texture and longevity, but Urban Decay liners set quicker. Plant Love stays smudgeable for about three minutes versus 30 seconds for Urban Decay. The extra time comes in handy when I’m doing a smokey eye with lots of blending and smudging.
There are six liners in the Plant Love liner collection. I’ve taken a look at Midnight Blue and Black.
- Midnight Blue, a shimmery grayish slate blue, makes my brown eyes pop if I do a smokey eye by drawing a line of Midnight Blue on my upper lash line, and then smudge a shimmery gray, blue or beige eyeshadow powder shadow directly on top.
- Black applies as a rich, true black with no blue undertones. I think it looks great when layered beneath a shimmery brown, pink or beige.
Made from organic ingredients, Cargo Plant Love’s a “green” makeup line. They’ve been around for a few years. Their liners are free of parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals and synthetic dyes and fragrances.

I never really paid close attention to Cargo’s liners before, but I’m glad I finally did.
Well, at least I finished a ton of reading
Okay, today has not been one of my cuter days. I think I might have food poisoning. For the record, Monday afternoons are even worse than usual when you spend most of the day in “the reading room” (aka the loo). On the bright side, my new Sephora mag just came in the mail!
Whatever you’re up to, I hope your stomach is cooperating!
