Lime Crime Plushie Rosebud Review and Swatch

The Plushies cost $18 each from Lime Crime or £18.00 from UK suppliers. They’re vegan and cruelty-free. They have 3.5ml of product and 12-month shelf life from opening.

PLUSHIES (from plushy: a soft toy) are the new generation of nude lips. Non-opaque, soft focus formula enhances natural lip color while making your lips look as plush as a teddy bear!


Lime-Crime-Plushies-Doe-FootPlushies are the sheer sister to Velvetines. They come in pink plastic packaging, which has all the information on. There is a pink label on the bottom but it is very light pink and the writing is white, which makes it nearly impossible to read. I’d recommend keeping the box for this one.
They’ve also got a really cute teddy bear on the lid.

They’ve also got a small doe foot applicator that grabs enough product to cover the lips in one go. It’s a nice size that means you can get a nice clean edge.

They dry down in a minute or two to a matte finish and depending on how much you use they can have quite a solid colour or sheer finish. I find these a little more drying than the Velvetines formula but like the Velvetines I find them smudge-proof.


I’m going to admit that this was a gift with purchase as I’m not a huge fan of the formula.


Rosebud is described as a sheer nude-pink and it very much is for me. It’s the quintessential my lips but better shade for me. I really wish I loved the formula on me because this looks so good.

As I said before I personally find these more drying than the Velvetines formula, so will always choose the Velvetines first. However, I do like this one because of the colour, I just wish it wasn’t as drying on my lips. They’re long-lasting and don’t budge.
