Kylie Jenner admits to temporary lip fillers – and UK enquiries rocket

Frankly, we feel a little cheated…

But now the world has shifted on its axis. She’s fessed up – it was temporary lip fillers all along.

Frankly, the news has left us reeling. If you can’t trust a Kardashian sister – WHO CAN YOU TRUST?!

Tight-lipped no more

To be fair, there are understandable reasons why Kylie kept schtum for so long about her treatment.

As she explains in a short video teaser for the new series of Keeping Up with the Kardashians:

“I have temporary lip fillers. It’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do. I’m just not ready to talk to reporters about my lips yet, because everyone always picks us apart.”

“People are so quick to judge me on everything, so…. I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie.”

She is after all, only 17 years old. And now the cat’s out of the bag, the scrutiny on her – and her family for giving consent for her treatment – is bound to be intense.

A stunned world reacts…

Her lip fillers revelation is a particularly timely one, coming hot on the heels of a recent Twitter trend inspired (though not started) by Ms Jenner.

The #kyliejennerchallenge saw hosts of young people sharing their outrageously fat-lipped selfies – the result of sucking their lips into plastic bottles for minutes at a time.

Crazy, but true.

And now the news that her impressive pout is down to lip fillers has inspired people anew.

Several UK clinics have reported a huge surge in enquiries for temporary lip fillers in the 24 hours since Kylie’s confession – with some reporting a staggering 70% increase.

Thankfully most UK clinics have an over-18s policy, so young teens won’t be able to rush into treatment to emulate Kylie.

But with such a huge increase in enquiries it’s almost certain that some in their 20s and up have been inspired to find out about the procedure too.

Fascinating – and a little scary – to see just how powerful an influence celebrities can be when it comes to our aesthetic pursuits.
