Kylie Jenner’s lips have ignited a horrifying trend.
Just a couple of weeks ago, an Australian woman tried to emulate the 17-year-old’s plump mouth by subjecting herself to a painful at-home procedure. And, as the viral video shows, she wasn’t thrilled about looking like she made out with a curling iron.
Apparently, a couple of sisters from Iceland didn’t get the warning, and they too jumped on the lip-plumping trend. However, instead of resorting to expensive cosmetic surgeries, they took a cheaper, DIY approach: They sucked on a water bottle until their lips were bruised and swollen.
Yeah, they were that desperate to look like Kylie.
The sisters, Yrja Ás Baldvinsdottir and Birgitta Ás, each posted the terrifying results on Facebook. And Yrja made sure to include a warning: “I just wanted to try it and see what they would look like, I’ve never done it before, and I won’t be doing it again. It was very, very painful. My lips turned blue,” she said in an accompanying post. “I wanted to warn people against do-it-yourself lip expansion, but was really surprised and shocked that it ended up being something that loads of people were copying.”
We're crossing our fingers this trend is short-lived.
