Kylie Jenner has spoken out against fans participating in the Kylie Jenner Challenge to plump their lips, and also admitted to being “bored” of all the speculation over whether she’d had cosmetic surgery on her lips. But the guessing is over, as the 17-year-old has revealed that she had lip injections, admitting: "I have temporary lip fillers, it’s just an insecurity of mind and it’s what I wanted to do.”
Kylie admits the truth to her family in an upcoming episode of their hit TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, confiding in older half-sisters Kim Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian: “I want to admit to the lips, but people are so quick to judge me on everything, so I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie.”
In a nod to their lifestyle and media attention, Kylie added: “Everyone always picks us apart.”
Speculation about Kylie’s new look came in 2014 after she shared a series of snapshots which had commentators suggesting she had surgically enhanced her lips – she later deleted the pictures, and wrote on Twitter: “Let’s get our lives together guys and talk about some important s***. Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.”
The teenager also spoke to her fans about body image in April, after a recent craze saw fans trying to recreate her fuller lips by using vacuums and glasses or bottles tops to try and create suction for plumper lips.
Dubbed the ‘Kylie Jenner Challenge’, it left many with severe bruising and swollen lips, and Kylie took to Twitter to address those taking part in the challenge and urge them to stop risking further damage.
“I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look,” she wrote in the first of two posts. “I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look,” she continued.
