Kylie Jenner Reveals The Real Reason Behind Her Lip Injections

Hint: It all started with a kiss.

Published September 13, 2017

The Kardashian-Jenners are typically the center of attention when it comes to what’s real — and what’s fake. And in the middle of it all are Kylie Jenner’s lips.

Now, we weren’t surprised when Kylie finally admitted to plumping her pout in 2015 despite lying about it for years. She admitted to her sister in an Allure interview, "Well, I definitely made my lips a little too big at one point." Uh, you think?

This comes after sharing previously on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, "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," she added. "But I didn't lie." *Insert side eye*

Ms. Jenner hasn’t spoken much about her lips since she dropped her Kylie Lip Kits, but in the latest episode of Life of Kylie, she shares exactly why she got injections. Spoiler alert: It was over a boy!

“I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips ... I [had] really small lips, '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,'" she said, adding that she "took that really hard."

At first, Kylie started to overdraw her lips with liner to create the illusion of full lips before opting to just get them done. "It really affected me – I didn't feel desirable or pretty," she revealed. 

The Talk host Sheryl Underwood weighed in on the topic, “To make such a dramatic change in adolescence just because one person says something. What she should have felt was, ‘I'm beautiful. This is the first kiss not the last kiss. Someone's going to like me.’” Amen, Sister Underwood!

Listen, your body (and face) is yours to alter as you please. However, you can’t let negative commentary get you down — and to the doctor’s office. Growing up in the spotlight is 100 percent difficult, but a little self-esteem can go a long way. 

We're pretty sure that whoever that boy is now is kicking himself — or at least wishing he could kiss her now!
