After a couple of hours trying to get a shot for this challenge I was feeling like I'd photographed every piece of glass we own and, even worse, getting nothing even remotely worth entering "sigh".
I was just getting ready to give up when I remembered the two free red wine glasses my husband recently got with the wine he'd ordered. The glasses were differently shaped than the ones we have so I thought it was worth a (very last) try.
Right from the first photo the face was in the glass. I was amazed, couldn't believe it. I know there's a perfectly logical explanation for this but I was thrilled to bits.

Anyways... Many thanks for the votes and lovely comments.

Terrific! The face takes this where the "pretty" smooth glass pictures never quite go :-)
