A new trend blowing up across social media has encouraged teenagers to use bottles or shot glasses to make their lips as big as Kylie Jenner’s.
The #kyliejennerchallenge is problematic since the method is reportedly painful and can lead to bruising around the lips. Despite the consequences, teens have quickly picked up the challenge in hopes of emulating Jenner’s bee-stung pout.
The process is performed by placing your mouth over the opening of a cup, jar or other narrow vessel and sucking until the air vacuum causes the lips to swell. There are countless photos on Instagram and Twitter of the aftermath.
“Made my chin look like a hickey a week ago and I’ll say I’ve never felt so dumb,” one teen wrote.
Another teen wrote that the challenge made her lips turn purple.
The results, a product of blood flowing to the lips, are said to last for hours.
“I hate our generation. It’s so dumb,” one teen ranted. “Like you guys are really sticking your lips in small cups.”
Jenner has denied that her iconic pout was a result of plastic surgery.
