Bloom’s Guide to the Best of the Internet: The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge


For this edition of “Bloom’s Guide to the Best of the Internet,” I will be talking about a phenomenon that took the Internet by storm a few months ago: the Kylie Jenner Lip challenge. Let’s get it straight: there is nothing appealing about putting a small glass to your face and sucking in to create a vacuum, causing one’s lips to swell up. You have to see it to believe it.

Kylie Jenner claims that she has never had any type of plastic surgery. Come-on Kylie, we know your lips are fake. The consequences of this challenge can be severe, because you are creating suction using a glass, which could break, creating major injuries that could only be fixed with stitches. The air-tight vacuum also causes bruising and broken blood vessels around the mouth. Gross, right?

I asked junior Kayla Castellano her opinion. She said, simply, “Eww.”

Well, there you go folks. DO NOT do the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. It is not worth it. But it is definitely worth a trip to YouTube.
