The Kylie Jenner Challenge

by Martha Scully

If you have tweens at home, you probably know all about the obsession with Kylie Jenner of the Kardashians.  There's a new challenge starting to trend.  Just like the cinnamon challenge, chubby bunny, and the babyfood challenge, the Kylie Jenner challenge is becoming very popular too.  What is it?  Youth are suctioning their lips to bottles or glasses with small openings, in order to make there lips larger - just like the star's.

Sure challenges can be funny... but as a group of women in the office who play with beauty products/ trends on the daily, we found it a little scary that such young girls (and even some boys) would injure and bruise their faces in order to look like a famous person.  In this particular video, a teen girl starts bleeding after doing the challenge.

Parents, would this sit right with you if it was your kid?
