How to Get Kylie Jenner Lips, and the Dangerous Side Effects

Young girls who desire to have lips like Kylie Jenner are causing sucking on a shot glass to achieve her look.

It is being called the Kylie Jenner Challenge after reality television star Kylie Jenner, 17, who has recently made many tabloids for her plump lips.

Girls are artificially plumping their lips by taking a shot glass up to their lips and sucking in until their lips get swollen and puffy.

Girls everywhere are taking on this challenge but medical advisors are warning about the extremities of doing so.

According to a report from Pop Sugar, “Very young girls — significantly younger than Kylie, who is only 17! — are participating.”

“After placing their lips into the shot glass, they suck the air out of the glass, creating friction. However, because the glass isn’t flexible […] the shot glass can break under all the pressure, causing serious injuries that require stitches to repair,” the report continues to say.

Dermatologist Dendy Engelman told Seventeen magazine, “The new trend in trying to DIY lip plumping is quite concerning. Not only can significant pain, swelling, and bruising result from these suction techniques, but there is a potential risk for scarring and permanent disfigurement with repeated attempts.”

Many mothers and women show concern as well. They believe young girls such as these should not be trying to go to extremes of pain and danger just to look like the stars they envy.

Orofino, a CandyLipz user which is a product that helps to plump the lips, is even against this modification.

“I am against young women — who aren’t fully developed (physically or mentally) — making uninformed decisions that could change their looks forever. If you’re looking to try this big-lip trend, I recommend doing so by overlining your mouth with lipliner (that’s what Kylie claims she does!),” wrote Orofino.

Jenner claims her potty lips are all natural. A while back she told Britain’s Grazia Daily, “I’m like, ‘Stop talking about my lips, I haven’t had plastic surgery. I’ve never been under the knife. People flashback to pictures of me when I was 12 and say ‘Kylie’s so different’ but how can I look the same from 12-18?”

Though Kylie has yet to speak specifically on the issue she does take to Twitter with tweets reading, “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look…I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look.”

Kylie Jenner does not promote the challenge nor performs the DIY lip challenge on herself.
