NYX SMLC Amsterdam + Black Eyeliner: A Lime Crime Wicked Dupe?

NYX Amsterdam mixed with varying degrees of Tarte Onyx black eyeliner

I did a quick swatch this morning of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (SMLC) in Amsterdam with black eyeliner (I used Tarte Onyx). I just mixed them on the lips, layering the black eyeliner on top of the red color and blending with my finger, and repeating until I get the desired mix. I usually do this to tame down Amsterdam to the level of the middle swatch (picture above). But this morning I tried to take it to extremes and darkened it slightly beyond my comfort level (right most picture). A dupe with Lime Crime Wicked? You be the judge. Perhaps the result would be nice with NYX SMLC Monte Carlo, which I do no have anymore. NYX Marocco would also work (see swatches below).
