I've tried a fair share of different lip pencil/liner formulas and have grown to like the more creamier versions, which almost feel like a lipstick when applied. The Rimmer Exaggerate lip liners have a similar creamy formula and are available in a decent shade range (although the stock of different shades largely varies from one seller to another).
Rimmer Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners contain 0,25 g of product and come in a retractable pencil packaging, so there's no need for sharpening and no wasting of product (for comparison the Longlasting Lipliners from Essence contain 0,23 g). The formula is quite creamy and glides on the lips smoothly without dragging, but I sometimes find it so creamy that it crumbles when I'm applying and the pencil is also prone to breaking off if I put too much pressure on it.
I have the shade Eastend snob and the pigmentation is really nice and opaque in one swipe. When I first apply it the lip liner feels quite comfortable on the lips, but starts getting a little drying after 3 hours, at which point it also sets into the lip lines very obviously. This one is comfortable enough that I can wear it without applying anything on top, but I still like to put a bit of gloss or some sheer lipstick/lip balm over it, so the comfortable feel last a bit longer. On it's own the liner doesn't really transfer when drinking and stays on the lips for good 5 hours, but with something creamier on top it usually wears off in the centre of the lips sooner. It also doesn't last well through a full meal (but no lip products do on me anyway).
The Rimmer Exaggerate lip liner in Eastend snob is a soft mauve pink shade which applies matte. It is one of the rare mauves that doesn't turn too purple on me, but it still gets a bit darker as it dries on the lips. It is a lovely everyday shade.

On the lips:
Overall it has a nice creamy formula and lasts pretty well on the lips. Compared to the more affordable Essence Longlasting Lipliners it is creamier, but doesn't apply as smoothly and leaves a slightly tacky finish when you press the lips together, while the Essence ones feel weightless.
