The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

beauty, makeup, trend

I’m a Kardashian addict! Seriously, I can genuinely say I’ve seen every single episode of not only Keeping Up With the Kardashians but allllll the spin off shows. Favourite episode? Has to be from Kourtney and Kim Take New York when the Lord Scott Disick treats himself to a cane, hilarious!

So as a big fan I’ve lived and breathed the art of contouring and highlighting since the first time I saw Kims perfectly sculpted face. In the last year or so though it is her younger sister Kylie who has been owning the media with those massive lips! I so wanted to believe that she simply drew them on but alas when pictures of her emerged makeup-less and fully plumped it became clear that wasn’t the case.

Kylie Jenner: before and after

But there was hope, I read she had allegedly used a lip plumper by Candylips to create her pout, but at $90 that was out of the question. I googled, I eBayed and I Amazoned until I found a £4 alternative. It arrived, and IT WORKED, my lips were plump, at last!

The hope, the disappointment

They looked ridiculous, Snapchat hilarity ensued. 5 minutes later the fun was over, they quickly deflated leaving just a couple of dark bruises above my top lip *attractive*. Have I stopped using it? NO, because according to the instructions they will permanently plumpen if used daily. Does that make me a total sucker *if you’ll pardon the pun* for gimmicky products? HELL YES. I can’t deny it, because just like so many of those girls on Vine desperately hoping for likes and/or fuller lips, I will shamelessly continue to buy into these types of products in the hope that one day something hits.

Of course this blogpost wouldn’t be complete without my own disaster picture…

I’d love to know if any of you have bought something similar! Did it work? Have you got any funny pictures of you doing the challenge?
