#KylieJennerLipChallenge: Beware potential risk of disfigurement

By Thalita Bianda Siregar

After the Ice Bucket Challenge gets fusty and no one does that anymore, it is time for Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge. Teenagers, especially young women and even little girls start participating in this Challenge by inserting lips into a shot glass and sucking the air out of the glass for minutes to get that Kylie Jenner look, plump lips. The participants share and post their terrifying and horrible pictures in any social media platform as #KylieJennerLipChallenge to show the results of sucking their lips.

Kylie Jenner is a 17-year old reality television show star and a model. She popularises the full lips look since last fall with nude or dark colour lipstick which is the new trend now.

“The new trend in trying to DIY (Do It Yourself) lip plumping is quite concerning,” as said by Dendy Engelman, a dermatologic surgeon. “Not only significant pain, swelling, and bruising result from these suction techniques, but there is potential risk for scarring and permanent disfigurement with repeated attempts.” (Interviewed by Seventeen)

Moreover, shot glass can break under the pressure, causing serious injuries that need stitches to allay.

Not only using a shot glass, some do the Challenge by using jar, bottle and even purchase a product named CandyLipz which is meant for pouting your mouth. Kylie herself does not engage with the Challenge or even do the suction techniques. “I’m not here to try and encourage people to look like me or to think this is the way they should look,” she shared on her Twitter account. “I want to encourage people like me to be YOURSELF and not be afraid to experiment with your look.”

Kylie claims that she gets the plump lips look by over-lining her mouth with lip liner. (Interviewed by Grazia, Magazine Mode & Beautè)

Unending trends of fashion will absolutely change from time to time but do not let your body get hurt as a familiar quote by Julie Ann says, “Beauty is Pain”.***
