Do you like the lines around the lips?

0:05:000:05:02

No, I don't like and she knows that.

0:05:020:05:04

But I like the idea of the blue lines with the pink lipstick. That's quite good.

0:05:040:05:09

-You see how they pick on me and make me feel terrible?

-You're a girl. What do you know about make-up?

0:05:090:05:14

Exactly! That's what I say all the time(!)
