Everyday brings something new from Kylie Jenner. Year-by-year, the lip kit queen’s pout grows a few inches plumper, making her physically unrecognizable to those who watched her grow up on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Her transformation has been the talk of the town ever since 2014 when she suddenly appeared on Instagram with fuller lips…
As we scrolled through our Instagram feed, we’d take a look at the brunnete’s latest selfie and question “Are those lips real or fake”? Kylie’s pout went from zero to hero in matter of months.
Perhaps this was the moment she gained inspiration…
Kylie’s brows looked higher, her chin and jaw had shrunk and most evidently, her lips were suddenly larger than life. Everyone was desperate to know the secret to that luscious pout.
What Did Kylie’s Lips Look Like Before?
In case you forgot, young Kylie’s lips were thinner than a lasagne sheet. Before the age of 17, Kylizzle actually looked her age. She wore less makeup and wasn’t afraid to show-off her natural look.
Just like your regular girl next door, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner klang would pull a duckface and apply a bold lip color to make her pout look bigger.
This before and after photo of Kylie shows the drastic difference between her old lips and current ones.
But as her lips grew bigger by the selfie, it made many wonder if she’d augmented her lips. Puberty nor makeup can increase your lip size by that much.
Was it contouring? Was Kylie simply filling in her lips with lip liner? Or more importantly…
Did She Get Lip Injections?
Indeed she did. After denying it several times, Kylie Jenner finally came clean and admitted to having lip fillers in 2015. In an E! clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie announced that she “had temporary lip fillers”. “It’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do,” she added.
Earlier that year, Kylie lied to numerous sources telling them her lip tricks were simply due to “lip liner and a little lip balm”. Her representative even told MailOnline that rumors of lip fillers and other procedures were “so ridiculous” and “not true.” In 2014, she tweeted: “These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting,”
Turns out she lied.
Which lip fillers does Kylie use?
Kylie Jenner got lip fillers, specifically, Juvéderm by Dr. Ourian in Beverly Hills. This formula reportedly lasts 4-6 months, depending where it’s injected. They’re reversible and “if you do not like the results the doctor can inject the enzyme, hyaluronidase, to dissolve it,” Dr. Swift told Hollywood Life.
Despite receiving heavy criticism about getting a cosmetic procedure at only 17-years-old, Kylie built a cosmetics empire out of her most famous asset. Kylie’s Lip Kits are now worth a whooping $420 million. I guess this is something she’d never have achieved had it not been for her talked-about big lips.

Why Did She Get a Lip Job?
On her reality-TV show, Life of Kylie, Kylizzle revealed her true motivation to get lip fillers – and it involves a boy.
After her first kiss, “the guy was like, “I didn’t think you were gonna be a good kisser, ’cause you have such small lips.” I took that really hard. When a guy says that…I don’t know, it just really affected me. I didn’t feel desirable or pretty. It really sticks with you”, she told her therapist on the show.
It’s clear to see Kylie doesn’t look the same anymore. These before and after photos show two distinctly different looking faces even though the person is the same.
Kylie’s ever-expanding lips don’t appear to be deflating anytime soon. Here she is pictured in September 2017 with a larger pout than ever before.
