Mona Lips-Synch (via fishbucket)

"Everybody's fascinated with the smile," says author Seymour Reit.
"Michelangelo was intrigued, called it an ironic smile. Other people have described it as sly, sublime, enticing, mysterious, repellent, witty, scornful, eerie, magnetic, sensual, remote, all wise and ice cold. There's even one theory put out by some dental expert who said, 'She's not smiling at all; she's having trouble with her gums!'
(PBS Mona Lisa's Smile)

She is the perfect gift for art connoisseur's

The 'disguisted' face is especially kewl.

I think 'scorning' matches my own attempt at an enigmatic smile.
I seem to alternate between that and the pout of 'Disappointed'
