    almighty

    her smile and eyes are almighty

    Is it OK in English? I mean, if it is not rude or something, because it was meant to be a compliment. Thanks.

    Evidently it's an English word (all mighty) refering to God. But it also refers to Sth very important or large in informal English. (here it may mean Serious or Impressive)

    not a teacher...

    It is a bit of a strange use of English but not incorrect. I would call it poetic rather than normal speech. It certainly is not rude!

    As I sometimes say, take your compliments when you can get them.

    By the way, I would be interested to know what you feel the meaning of this phrase is and how it is being used. Perhaps there is a clearer way to say it.
