The 18-year-old admits that it was rude comments from boys about the size of her 'small' lips that first spurred her on to get fillers...
Kylie Jenner’s lips have become one of her most talked-about features – in fact, the name Kylie Jenner rarely comes up without her pout at least getting a mention.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star finally came clean about getting lip fillers last year – after months of denial – but what she rarely talks about it why she felt the need to get them.
Okay, Kylie’s admitted in the past that she’d always felt ‘insecure’ about her lips, but now, she’s come out with the real reason she felt compelled to plump up her pout in a new interview with Complex.
As this month’s cover star, the 18-year-old appears on the cover topless, with a super high ponytail, exaggerated eye flicks and a vampy red wine lip.
And inside, she admits that it was actually cruel comments from boys that first made her feel like her ‘small’ lips were a problem.
Oh, Kylie : (
‘This guy I kissed [in middle school] was like, “Your lips are really small but you’re a really good kisser. I didn’t think you were gonna be good at kissing.” It was so rude’, Kylie said.
‘From then on, I just felt like I saw guys staring at my lips. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me.’
The teenager went on to admit that when she first got her lips done, she went a bit overboard, such is the addictive nature of fillers.
‘When you first get them done, you’re like, “Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side.” I’d go back and be like, “They went down” and think they could be bigger. But I went too far. It was very painful’, Kylie confessed.
However, she still insists that her lips are the only bit of fakery on her body, adding: ‘It’s annoying to hear every day that you’re just this fake, plastic person when you’re not. Every single day there was a news story about me.’

She added: ‘At the end of the day I have to live with everything I do. I’m just proud of myself for not going crazy.’
