Kylie Jenner reveals why she had her lips done
Kylie Jenner is possibly best identified with her lips which, after being injected, has brought her both controversy and success.
The youngest Jenner is famous for putting on matte lipstick, and capitalized on her popular look by launching her own line of lip products, the Kylie Lip Kit. In its first outing in 2015, stocks sold out in 30 seconds.
With her level of international fame, certainly she could have done so without a full pair of puckers.
On her solo reality show, “Life of Kylie” on E!, the 20-year-old said she always felt conscious of her thin lips.
“I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips. I have really small lips,” she said.
But what pushed her to make them bigger? “And it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.’ But I took that really hard. Just when a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me.”
“I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty. I really wanted bigger lips. I would over-line my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips. And then finally I was like this lip liner isn’t doing it. I ended up getting my lips done,” she explained.
As part of her family’s reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” even before she was a teen, it’s understandable to see how she could be self-conscious, and how comments on her appearance could cut deep.
Despite criticism for getting plastic surgery at a young age, the cosmetics queen has earned a huge following. She has one of the most followed Instagram accounts, while her makeup line is nearly half a million dollars in just 18 months, mom Kris Jenner told WWD in August. Niña V. Guno /ra
