another way of saying the person is really polite and flattering, but when they look you in the eyes after they move their lips, you both know that underneath it all there is no sincerity.
a long time ago i had this art teacher that allays seemed really lofty around all her students, in her own way she would compliment you on your work, and then with a smile she would tell you how she thought you should change it so it would look better to her,

one time after she told me i should draw my sunset with a different set of colors i told her that i was aiming to make something different because that's how i wanted it to look in the end,

and with an obsequious smile she told me my grade on the project would turn out much nicer if i chose her colors instead, i smiled back and walked away frustrated as anything; this two faced cow honestly didn't care how hard i worked on this painting,

that bitch would fail me in a heartbeat if i ventured into my own creativity.
