    Well yeah okay what other people do doesn't adversely affect your life, sure, but that defeats the purpose of discussion.
    I gave my opinion on it but also don't want my opinion to make someone feel bad about themselves if they do have them or if someone wants to get them remind them its their choice at the end of the day regardless of my opinion

    Stupid.

    And, I marvel at how it's looked at as the new 'cool' thing to do, if it's on white women, that is. Black women have been made fun of, for years for having larger lips.

    Similar sentiment towards having a big booty and black women.

    Naturally large lips don't really look like 'kylie jenner' lips or whatever you wanna call them.

    I'm curious. More people are getting it from what I can see.
    Never known of lip injections. My dentist injects into the gum.

    I've had my lips done; there is a part of me that regrets doing this and certainly not something I would encourage my own kids to do . I won't judge anyone negatively for getting cosmetic work done...of course if the work looks bad/ unnatural then I might laugh or pity them! As long as there is no physical or psychological harm being done, then a person should be free to alter their body as they see fit.

    It's becoming increasingly normal to get a body part enhanced. In South Korea, a common graduation present from parents is double-eyelid surgery. Many people who get cosmetic work done will claim that they are doing it solely for themselves. I doubt this is the case. Take away the crushing social pressure and constant messages from the beauty industry to look a certain way, and very few would put themselves through physical and financial pain for bigger lips or bigger breasts.

    Sorry who is Kylie Jenner?? I doubt having their lips done will make them look like Kylie Jenner look at that guy who spent thousands to look like David Beckham and he just ruined his face instead he looks like Jake off the tweenies.
    I still think people are incredibly insecure if they feel the need to change their looks.

    My mum is going through a phrase of wanting this done. I keep managing to talk her out of it but I'm worried she's going to get it done before my wedding and it'll muck up and she'll be stuck with a trout pout :eek:

    Maybe this is her midlife crisis :teehee:

    Lips fillers last 6-12 months (if you use HA fillers). And can be reversed with hyalase.

    I think it rarely looks good tbh. If it makes them feel confident then good for them but I don't personally see the appeal. Natural lips always look better imo.

    I hate it think it looks awful, your natural features suit you the most so most of the time surgery/botox look awful in my opinion!

    But if it makes you happy sod everyone elses opinion haha
    If done by a good doctor, then lips fillers can look really good and undetectable. If one goes to a shady practitioner (which unfortunately many girls do) then yes, they will end up with dreadful fish lips. A few images below to show what is meant by good filler.

    Yeah those look good, they're quite natural looking. Sadly the trend seems to be the awful fish lips you mentioned. Not a fan of them at all.

    Fuller lips makes you look more youthful hence why many older women would get them. Now its a trend to have bigger lips within younger population due to celebrities.

    I feel you can make any lip size look seductive and people need to understand that not everyone can pull of thicker lips (blessed are they who can).

    Embrace your lips, people.

    No one above the age of 18 and with reasonable intelligence would want the Kylie Jenner look.

    I don't have a problem with anyone getting cosmetic surgery, but I'm still yet to see lips with lip injections look good. They seem to look okay after one treatment, but then I've seen a lot of people miss how big their lips were immediately after the first treatment and go for more, then they can look kinda lumpy and uneven when more is injected into the lips . I've also seen people lose all definition between their lips and their face in terms of shape and colour because, I can only assume, too much was injected in?

    Don't really care if it's an injection which is non permanent, though. At least if it goes wrong it'll go away eventually

    I've always wanted lip reductions and now huge lips are a thing and I don't get it.
    And now everyone asks if I've got fillers but nah they're real
    Why does everyone say huge lips are a recent thing? Do people forget that huge lips have always been idolised?







    Better than KJ and natural

    Also, the reason why Kylie looks better with those ridiculous lips of hers is because she has a massive, masculine jaw, so needs to fill that huge space with something. If she had a more delicate, feminine face her lips would have been perfectly fine, they were just completely disproportionate.

    It reminds me of France's Bean Cobain, who had her lips done years ago. She has a similar face to Kylie, huge square jaw. Her lips would have been perfectly fine on another woman with a softer face.



    By the way I completely oppose lip injections. But I think it's a bit ignorant to make out lip injections and big lips are a recent trend

    Agree- full lips have always been considered attractive (given that the rest of the facial features are attractive ofc and in harmony). Big lips were idolised way before Jenner; she only popularised and normalised lip fillers among the very young.
