Both formulas are cream finish/based that keep your lips feeling hydrated for me. The cream base means that they don't wear as long as a matte formula, but that can be corrected with a lip primer or lip/eye liner. ;)

The pigmentation of the Macaron Lippies is fairly even through the application for these 3 shades.

The pigmentation of the Wicked Lippies varies base and shimmer/mica they used and if the shade also has a base tint/pigment like Trickery, Risque, and Sinful.

Citron is a dusty canary yellow with a cream finish.
Orange Blossom is a bright light orange with a cream finish.
Key Lime is a light bright electric Green with a cream finish.
Blue Velvet is a vibrant cobalt blue with a cream finish.

Mischievous is a antiqued yellow gold with a metallic finish. This shade is sheer as it has little to no base colour!
Trickery is a khaki green with a gold shimmer finish.
Risque is a is a rich vibrant forest green with a metallic finish.
Sinful is a deep marine blue with a white pearl finish. It not completely opaque on its own.

Wear: For about 4-5 hours before needing a touch-up on their own.

Packaging: Is a basic lipstick bullet tube with a clear centre window to show the product.

I have to give it to NYX for going where no mainstream brand had gone before and kept what would be considered outlandish shades in their permanent collection. Now you can't buy these in local drugstores in Canada, and I think only Ulta in the US has them in store. NYX does a fully functioning e-commerce site you can order directly in the US and Canada now as well. (no more international post with NYX for my fellow Canadians)

Overall because these have a similar cream base formula I recommend using a lip/eye liner under these to prolong the wear time and even out the shade.... But cosplayers have it easy for lip shades now. ;)
