A small lie that your mother tells you to make you feel better, which generally does not work because you know it is a lie. Usually pertains to physical appearance.
Son (with throbbing pimple on nose):
"Mom, I have a horrible zit on my face!"

Mother (with a sympathetic look):
"Oh, honey, it's not noticeable at all."

Son (grumbling):
"What a maternal lie!"
