Kylie Jenner, 18, caused a media frenzy when the reality star/lip kit connoisseur suddenly started sporting a bigger pout, claiming it was due to over-lining her lips with liner. After a few months, Kylie gave up the jig and admitted to having had her lips filled on E! Network's Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kylie stands her ground saying that she didn't lie about having her lips done, she did begin exploring the idea of bigger lips by over-lining her lips with lip liner. Plus, she technically never denied having lip fillers.
Kylie caused such a stir mostly because the teen was under the age of 18 at the time of the procedures. Kylie told Cosmopolitan in an interview that momager Kris was "super-against" the procedure. Kylie explained, "but I begged her and begged her and she finally let me do it." She claims her thin lips were a longtime insecurity for her and she wanted to do something about it. Many thought she was going overboard, but others couldn't get enough!
There has been a rise in popularity of lip fillers, lip plumpers, lip suction devices - you name it. Ladies everywhere are dying to get that perfect Kylie pout.
Being a Kardashian, Kylie capitalized on her lips' new fame, creating her own line of lip liners, lip sticks, and glosses - Kylie's Lip Kits from her own makeup brand, Kylie Cosmetics. The line of lips kits has been a major success with fans and makeup addicts around the world, selling out in record times.
Lip injections have long been a favorite of celebrities and the elite. Now everyone wants the big lip look. Fans of the youngest Jenner, even went as far as to create the "Kylie Lip Challenge" in late 2015 which went viral on the internet, and also terribly wrong for some experimenters. Every woman who wants the look has been searching for the right lip liner, plumper, or filler that will get them that perfect pout. What celebs have been most recent to jump on the lip plumping bandwagon?
10 Ellie Goulding
Ellie Goulding has been all over the tabloids after appearing on the red carpet at the Grammys after some obvious alterations to her face. The singer appears to have had a breast enhancement, some lip plumping, and possible cheek fillers. The singer has totally revamped her look and has ridden herself of all her previous insecurities. But did the singer go overboard with the procedures? Fans were not shy about sharing their thoughts with her on Twitter: "She looks older like mid 40s and didn't even recognize her."
9 Iggy Azalea
Rapper Iggy Azalea has recently went under the knife for a nose job and boob job, but fans are also accusing the star of enhancing her lips! What do you think? Have Iggy's lips been looking bigger lately?
The rapper did not hold back opening up about her nose job and breast augmentation, she told Elle Canada, "I think, in 2016, people should be more accepting of the fact that both famous and non-famous women are having cosmetic procedures," she told the publication. "That's just the reality. And I think more people need to admit that s--t so it doesn't have to be so taboo—because we're all doing it anyway."
8 Stassi Schroeder
Reality TV star on Bravo's hit series Vanderpump Rules and host of her own podcast, Straight Up With Stassi, Stassi Schroeder has made no secret of the fact that she is obsessed with Kylie Jenner's lips. So it was no surprise to her fans when she decided to give her lips some extra plumping earlier this year.
The reality TV star has previously spoken about having a chin implant as a teenager, and most recently had a breast reduction and lift.
7 Megan Fox
Natural-born beauty Megan Fox doesn't need to change a hair on her head to get all of the other heads to turn for her. But even Megan Fox desired a fuller pout and has been rumored to have had Juvederm injections.
Megan Fox has been rumored to have had many surgeries and procedures throughout the years. In 2012, In Touch Weekly published an article claiming that the actress had spent more than $60,000 on plastic surgery to her face.
Top plastic surgeons suggest that the actress most likely had some facial fillers and shaping/shaving down of the nose. Her cheekbones have become noticeably higher over the years and lips noticeably more full.
6 Farrah Abraham
Star of reality TV show Teen Mom and her own adult film, Back Door Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham had a lip implant earlier this year that went horribly wrong. The reality star had to be rushed to the hospital after the botched procedure.
Farrah turned to celebrity plastic surgeons and stars of their own reality series on E!, Botched, Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow to help her correct the problem.
This experience hasn't seemed to phase Abraham, the reality star even plans to eventually have a career in the industry, "I am starting licensing around January and then want to work up through cosmetics, aesthetics, everything up to plastic surgery and my Ph.D.," she says. "I'm just trying to do it and live it my best and that's where I want to potentially be."
5 Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson has always been an American beauty and pop idol, but sometime in the last few years, the singer decided to plump up the volume in the lip department - maybe just a tad too much.
4 Renee Zellweger
The actress shocked a lot of people when she showed up to a red carpet earlier this year looking almost unrecognizable. Zellweger underwent a major transformation, making alternations to not only her lips, but her cheeks, nose, and eyes.
The actress did not respond to plastic surgery rumors or questions for months. She finally told PEOPLE that she did not look at how the media was covering her during this time, "All that I know about is what friends and associates would send in texts and emails," she recalls. "They were sending support, which means that I must have needed it, and I prefer it that way. So when people come up to me to ask ‘How did that feel?’ I don’t know, and I like it like that. I don’t know. I know it sounds pretty unlikely that a person might be able to make herself, I guess, keep clear of those words or of that experience, but I have and it takes effort. But I have succeeded."
3 Heidi Montag
Former reality TV star of MTV's The Hills Heidi Montag shocked friends, family, and the public when she underwent 10 cosmetic surgery procedures in 2010. Montag was in her twenties when she decided to do this, and received quite a bit of backlash afterwards.
While this reality television star has made no effort to hide her obsession with plastic surgery, Heidi Montag continues to plump up her lips as well as many other body parts it seems. The star who went under the knife undergoing a total transformation is now saying she wasted over $3 million on surgeries and procedures.
2 Rosie Huntington-Whitely
This drop-dead gorgeous Victoria's Secret Angel couldn't resist but to amp up her puckered pout. The model has denied having any treatment on her lips, but changes in lip shape and size over the years suggest lip injections for sure.
The supermodel has always had fuller than average lips, but recently, she has been sporting an extra pouty look. Her lips appear to be swollen from the treatments in recent photos. The model is also suspected of having botox injections, a breast augmentation, and a nose job.
1 Kendall Jenner
Kylie's own sister Kendall Jenner has been accused recently of receiving some extra plumping to her lips. Pictures suggest that while the supermodel didn't go quite as crazy as her younger sister, she may have gotten a bit of injection in her lips as well. If the rumors are true, the model is an excellent example of what natural lip enhancement is supposed to look like.
How can you tell? Radar Online got celebrity plastic surgeon Anthony Youn to tell them, “Normally, unless your name is Angelina Jolie, the lower lip is 50% larger than the upper lip,” Dr. Youn explains. “When this ratio is reversed, the lips look puffy and unnatural. Hopefully much of the puffiness we see is due to swelling and will improve within the next couple days.”
