Kylie Jenner’s lips are, at this point, a modern-day American mystery. One day they were one way and the next, they were large, in charge, and dominating the Twitter-sphere with speculation over whether the 17-year-old had work done. She and many others argued the reality star was merely over-lining her lips. Beauty blogs doled out tutorials and more recently, folks tried to get her look by participating in the #KylieJennerChallenge. (The results were, for the most part, terrifyingly painful.)

Well, in news that’s probably not news to anyone, Jenner has revealed she did, indeed, have work done. “Kylie decided to plump her lips,” Khloé Kardashian tells the camera in a confessional clip from a future Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode. “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.” She goes on to say that it’s “right to cop up to it” if you had something done, which, in the youngest Jenner’s case, is her lips. "I have temporary lip fillers," Jenner says in a second preview clip. She adds that they are an insecurity of hers and that this was a decision she made on her own. She has stressed in the past that she doesn't want to encourage others to look like her. Rather, Jenner wants "to encourage people/young girls like me to be [themselves] and not be afraid to experiment with [their] look." 

Well, now that the cat (that wasn’t ever really in the bag) is out, brace yourself for a deluge of think pieces on teenagers getting plastic surgery. Your timelines are about to be, uh, full of them. (via BuzzFeed; E! News)
