I'm no sprite expert but "sticky" and "sprite" in the same sentence tells me there were probably more fluids involved than the soft drink.
I can't find anything to say about that gorgeous face that hasn't been said already, but what I can say is that you are selling yourself short. In NOOOO FUCKING POSSIBLE WAY is this a failure. And you don't suck at facial details. Well proportionate nose, full and sensuous lips, mysterious blue eyes with dark eyelids to emphasise the eyes(not a make-up expert either xD), smooth cheeks and a very well chiseled chin. The one place that you could work on is connecting the hair to the skin, like on the forehead.
Glad to have you come back with a very beautiful piece of work.
