English term or phrase: red, blue and black looks
A hawk-eyed, critical observer, she noted, "most Irish women are next to plain, most over 25 look ugly. They look to be without spirit, and suffer from piety. Piety makes plain women. The men, though, shine with something, sex maybe, or dissatisfaction, or good looks. The red, blue and black looks they have are masculine, women fade with it."

Any ideas? Ten czerwony zbija mnie z pantałyku.
