This long description does not provide users with enough information to
understand what the package does. What are "Bubbles" and "Lip Gloss" in
a shell script? What is a "glamourous shell script"?

It would be helpful if the package's long description satisfied §3.4.2
of the Debian Policy Manual [0]:

    The description field needs to make sense to anyone, even people who
    have no idea about any of the things the package deals with. [3]


    [3] The blurb that comes with a program in its announcements and/or
    README files is rarely suitable for use in a description. It is
    usually aimed at people who are already in the community where the
    package is used.

Best wishes,
