Mitsuki's a high school freshman worried about her looks—or, at least, her "baby face." Until, that is, she enlists a little help from classmate Atsuki and her makeup kit. When Atsuki's finished, the transformation is complete—and breathtaking. It's also when the romantic adventures begin—a roller coaster ride of the heart that young and old are sure to enjoy.

Manga: Charisma Doll
Both have heroines with two different identities that they show to the camera: Mitsuki and Model May (Brilliant Magic) and Sara and Singer Sala (Charisma Doll).

Difference is that the love triangle is more apparent in Brilliant Magic. Oh, and Hayase looks a bit like Kyo Mashima ^_^
