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!!

This is not good (or pretty).

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.


My lips on Monday morning.

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. 

The resemblance is uncanny. (Christine George/TSM)

In the end, big lips isn't all it's cracked out to be. I think I will stick with my God-given ones.

Back to normal. Thank God.

Oh yeah, and just in case you're wondering, that Vanilla Almost smoothie was disgusting!!
