The Brief: The face with tongue emoji expresses excitement, humour, and happiness.

This emoji can also be used for moments of trickery when someone feels like they have pulled a sly move on another person. A literal translation could be a playful “got ya” or “kidding.” Other interpretations include excitement or flirtation. This is similar to, but less suggestive than the tongue emoji.
