I honestly feel bad for y'all living outside of Asia and didn't get the Asian variant of this product (which comes with 10 GRAMS of product by the way) and hating your stick lol. If you live in Asia, go to you nearest Maybelline counter, go to your Guardian, your Watson and grab one! Here in Asia, this product bears the same name, but the shade names are simply "Nude" and "Pink". From the swatches I saw online, the colours seem to be different too. I only have the Nude one, but my stick definitely doesn't come out as yellow and bronzy as what I saw online. And it seems to be lighter to the Pink shade available here and lighter than the Western variant of it as well. Mine hardly shows any colour at all, just a very strong, even sheen, out makes my skin look glossy honestly, without emphasising my pores and other skin textures at all, which is what I truly value most in a highlight. And I'm above NC15 light skinned, but with more yellow and olive undertones. I think it will even work on darker skin tones, since all it adds is the sheen /gloss, and it doesn't have enough colour to itself to become ashy or anything. So you see, the Asian version really isn't anything like the Western version, save for same name. The shimmer in this stick is so so fine, they don't feel gritty, once applied to the skin, the formula immediately transforms from cream to powder and it dries on the spot, so I suggest you work fast. I have never had it becomes patchy on me, even though now that think of it, I have ALWAYS just blend it out messily with my fingers after swiping the stick straight on my skin, which is incredible. The product is super long lasting too, the glorious sheen stays with me ALL day, unless I wipe it off on my pillow case when I sleep, and even then some of it still remains. At the end of the day, it's still unmistakably there, at full force, not blotches off or broken down in a glittery mess on my badly scarred from acne skin. I use it on an every day basis ever since I bought it, I put this on right after sunscreen, on my cheekbones, tip and bridge of my nose, cupid's bow and on the contour of my forehead (if you watch Jackie Aina you know where), a bit of brow mascara and nude lip then I'm out the door. No foundation or any coverage from any other base product, no powder, no touch up, that's how much trust I have in this product to not worsen the appearance of my skin throughout the day.
The only reason I don't get the Pink stick is because I know for a fact that pink highlighter does not work well with my yellow olive undertone. Otherwise, I wholeheartedly recommend this product, as if the ranking want clear enough, especially if the shades available to you work with your skin tones. Just be aware of the variations of this products (the shades, shade names and weighs as I mentioned above), if you're into it enough, just look for it on eBay or Amazon. I wish they come out with more colours, but knowing Maybelline especially Maybelline Asia... I'm just gonna enjoy what I have for now.
