I Had Kylie Jenner Lips for a Day (Sort of) [Pictures]
Ever since Kylie Jenner admitted to getting her lips done I feel like there has been a lip craze. Celebrities and even everyday people have gotten lip injections or tried makeup tricks to make their lips bigger and more plump.
While I do admit to being obsessed with Kylie's lip kit I've never had a desire to actually get bigger lips, but that all changed today. For almost a day, I had Kylie Jenner lips. Except I didn't get them done... I had an allergic reaction.
I accidentally bought the wrong smoothie from the grocery store on Sunday. I meant to grab mango but instead I somehow ended up with Vanilla Almond. Later that night, I decided to give it a try and see if I liked it. But within 30 seconds of me taking that (tiny) sip... it happened. I started to break out in hives, I was getting itchy, my throat was starting to close up. An allergic reaction. As someone who's very food sensitive, I know when I'm getting a reaction. So I looked at the ingredients on the back of the bottle and there it was... PEA POWDER!
WTF?! Why is there PEA POWDER in a smoothie? I'm allergic to peas so I immediately took 2 Benadryl's and waited for the symptoms to go away. But something was off. My lips didn't feel right. I looked in the mirror and gasped at what the reflection gave back. MY LIPS ARE HUGE!!
I was freaked out. I've never had my lips blow up like this before. I waited about a half hour and then eventually took another Benadryl. My other symptoms had started to dissipate so I went to bed and hoped that by the next morning the swelling would've gone down.
Still swollen and on top of that my speech was slower because I couldn't properly use my lips.
Now I'm really freaking out cuz I did the worst thing ever and Googled what I was experiencing. Once I read 'life threatening' it was game over. I self-diagnosed myself and I came to the conclusion I was going to die lol. So, I went to the urgent care where they prescribed me medication to take over the next five days.
My lips are almost back to normal as I type this, which makes me feel a lot better knowing that I'm not going to die.
Now I can officially say that I've (sort of) had Kylie Jenner lips and I did it the natural way! Just kidding, don't give yourself an allergic reaction.
Did I feel sexier? Absolutely not. The proof is in the picture. I say Kylie Jenner lips only because I don't want to admit that I actually looked like Leela from the TV show, Futurama.
In the end, big lips isn't all it's cracked out to be. I think I will stick with my God-given ones.
Oh yeah, and just in case you're wondering, that Vanilla Almost smoothie was disgusting!!
