UNDATED (CNN) -- It was a big speech with a little makeup malfunction, and the next thing you know the internet was giving Condoleezza Rice lip over her lipstick.
It is the scourge of lipstick-wearing women; instead of just sticking to your lips, it transfers to your teeth. And proceeds to stick in the mind of whoever's looking at you. So in the midst of Condoleezza rice's wildly popular speech to the republican convention with its big ideas, a little, nagging idea crept in.
Someone commented on a video, "Is it me or does Condi have red lipstick on her teeth?" superficial? No question. Cosmetic by definition, but the tweets flew.
Another comment says, "Oh Condi. The lipstick. The lipstick. It's on your teeth." Or "I love you Condi but somebody should've told you there's lipstick on your teeth."
Still lipstick seems to be a recurring theme at republican conventions. Sarah Palin said in 2008, "You know the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick."
Do not try any of these on a pit bull but there are various tips for preventing lipstick on the teeth. Make-up mavens suggest you coat your teeth with certain ointments or Vaseline. And then there's the finger trick, excess lipstick sticks to your finger not your teeth.
It seemed to be mostly republican critics mouthing off about Condi's ever so minor make-up malfunction. "Feel guilty" said one "about noticing Condi's lipstick on her teeth because she is being less bat crazy than everyone else that has been on tonight."
