Instagram is flooded by postings of artificial fuller lips by teenagers nowadays. These postings are made by teenagers and fans of Kylie Jenner who wants fuller lips like hers even though it is only for temporary. Kylie Jenner is the youngest daughter of Kris and Bruce Jenner, an American reality television personality, socialite and model. She is best known for her appearance in the E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”.
To get the fuller lips like Kylie’s, these teenagers suction their lips with shot glasses and post it on Instagram with hash tagged #KylieJennerChallenge with many of them boasting of bruises, bleeding and “lip hickeys”. It appears that it is more dangerous than the collagen injection.
Firstly, the participants place a shot glass or similar small cups around their lips and inhale for a few seconds to create the effect. After a few minutes, they get the plumper lips as a result. After that they upload it and hash tagged it to share with other participants. The fuller lips effect will last for a short while whereas the side effect such as the bruise or “lip hickeys” will take longer time to subside. It seems like it is painful though.
Kylie Jenner has always claimed that her plump-up lips are the result of a makeup than plastic surgery.
