You know that feeling when someone gives you a compliment, but somehow makes you feel terrible? You respond with a half-smile “thank you” not quite sure whether you should be offended or ???. Las tías (y mom) are the masters of these backhanded compliments, that have bruised our self-esteem for years.
Qué lindo te quedó el maquillaje.
