Storyline

Kasane is an ugly girl who is severely bullied by her classmates because of her appearance; making things worse, Kasane's mother was a beautiful actress to whom Kasane is a dark contrast, even though she is as talented as her mother. However, one day Kasane's mother dies and leaves her a tube of lipstick, which Kasane finds is magical: if she takes it and kisses someone, she takes on their appearance for a short time. Kasane makes a deal with Nina Tanzawa, a beautiful lady who wants to be an actress but isn't talented enough. Kasane finds success and appreciation as Nina, but Nina eventually wants to be recognized for herself. How long can Kasane continue her act, and how desperate will she become to keep her success?
