    the sparkle in her eyes

    1) Pay attention to the way she acts. Note the shade of a smile on her face after the kiss, and the sparkle in her eyes.

    The sparkle is in her eyes after the kiss. I think the sentence does communicate that idea, but it is ambiguous. The sparkle might be there all the time.

    Is that correct?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: the sparkle in her eyes

    You're right. It could be there all the time. To avoid ambiguity, "Note, after the kiss, the shade of a smile on her face and the sparkle in her eyes".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
