    A curvy woman

    These sentences popped up in my mind reading about the word "curl" in my dictionary. Would you please correct my mistakes. Do these sentences sound natural?

    A nice, curvy woman walked by, and I told her she was beautiful. Her sensual lips curled, she gave me a stern look, and told me I was not the right man to give her compliments.

    Since you only gave her one compliment, I would change "compliments" to "a compliment".

    We usually say that someone's lip curls, not that their lips curl.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
