If you've never tried a Dazzleglass from MAC before, they're as sticky as a lipgloss can get, or very close to it. However, sometimes one comes along, that I think is worth pushing through the sticky, if even for a short period of time. Some Dazzleglass glosses are even worth pushing through for life. Phiff! is one of those, for me. I love it. I loved it as soon as I put it on. I shall battle the sticky for you Phiff!
Cremesheen Glass glosses are much more comfortable, formula wise, vs. Dazzleglass. I'm not big on glosses to begin with, but I do like formula of these. My absolute favourite formula of all time, for a gloss, is Annabelle's BigShow Lip Shine. Those are not even remotely sticky, they're beautiful and you can't beat the price point. Of the three gloss formula's I've tried from MAC, I prefer the Lipglass formula, so far. Should I get to try any of the other formula's, that opinion might change. But, overall, the Cremesheen Glass is quite nice.

A full size of each gloss retails for $24.00 CAD ....wait a minute...is there a misprint on the NET WT. of these? There's more product in these "mini" glosses, than there is in the full size? ....or am I going crazy here?...
