The first time I wore make up, boys made fun of me
Girls glared at me
My mother was concerned yet proud I was emulating her
My sisters congratulated me because I was a growing girl.
I was only 12 years old without a blemish on my face.
I still wonder why I did it because I really didn’t need to.
I still don’t need to wear make up, I am sufficient as I am.
Though I enjoy the comments I get when I wear red lipstick…
DIVA! Look at you!
Your lipstick suits you
I like your lipstick
Your lipstick is the perfect colour for your skin
Do you have red lipstick on?
I like your lipstick, very brave!
Unxibe ilipstick!nam ndiyayifuna! (You’re wearing lipstick, I also want to)…Miss! Isukile! (Oh no!It’s come off)
I’m gonna get mine out, you inspire me!
