Kylie Jenner is renowned for her full, plump lips, with fans often coveting her striking beauty looks. However, a recent craze saw fans trying to recreate her look by using vacuums and glasses or bottles tops to try and create suction for plumper lips, dubbed the 'Kylie Jenner Challenge', leaving many with severe bruising and swollen lips. The 17-year-old took to Twitter on Tuesday to address those taking part in the challenge and urge them to stop risking further damage.

Kylie Jenner has urged fans to stop taking on the 'Kylie Jenner Challenge'

"I'm not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look," she wrote in the first of two posts. "I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look," she continued.

It's not the first time the Keeping up with the Kardashians star has had to speak out about her world famous pout. Last year Kylie sparked speculation surrounding the size of her lips after she shared a number of images on social media showing her with a seemingly fuller look. Kendall Jenner's sister caused something of a media storm with a series of snapshots which had commentators suggesting she had surgically enhanced her lips - she later deleted the pictures. The young model, who denied having had any cosmetic surgery last April, hit back. "How long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao," she wrote on Twitter. "Let's get our lives together guys and talk about some important s***. Just talk about something new at least. I'm bored."

There have been many beauty crazes sweeping the nation as people try to get fuller lips, and not just to channel Kylie Jenner's famous look, but experts have repeatedly warned that these methods can be dangerous to try - in some cases, lips turn blue and could easily become infected and lose all sensation.
