  8. 8. Advice to a Tee By Isobel Thrill You have found a new war-game called Love. Here on your dressing-table stand arrayed brave ranks of lipsticks brandishing swords of cherry pink and flame. Behold the miniature armies of little jars packed with the scented dynamite of flowers. See the dreaded tweezers; tiny pots of manufactured moonlight, stick-on stars. Beware my sweet; conquest may seem easy but you can’t compete with football, motor cycles, cars, cricket, computer-games, or a plate of chips. Did this satisfy or confound your expectations?

  22. 22. Example SWEATY Thrilling depicts the make-up of the daughter in a militaristic manner. The startling metaphor of ‘swords of cherry pink and flame’ demonstrates how cosmetics create an image of power and capability since swords are often ceremonial items, and evoke a superior status. However, this is also a particularly combative metaphor, perhaps suggesting that make-up is used to attack and ensnare a potential boy. Despite this, the ‘pink’ suggests a sense of calmness and femininity which therefore suggests that this metaphor is more to empower the teenage girl than to attack a boy.
