Teen’s Mouth Swells Up After Using Fake Kylie Jenner Lip Kit
There are fake Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit out there and Rachael McLaughlin, 18 was another victim. She had to be rushed to hospital when her lips started to swell and she couldn’t feel her face after using the £3 kit bought on Facebook.
The teen has now warned of the dangers of ordering the knock-off kits online.
Speaking to Belfast Live, the young student said: “It was the scariest experience ever.
“I lost all feeling round the bottom of my face and my lips continued to grow bigger from when I first saw them.
“I couldn’t even look at myself and when others looked at me they said I looked like a completely different person.”
The young woman, of Belfast, had to go to the A&E at Belfast Royal Victoria Hospital after being left with badly blistered lips over the weekend.
Kylie Jenner’s lipkits normally cost about £25.
Her family said that the Facebook page she had bought the fake lip kit from had since disappeared.
A spokesperson for the Belfast Trust said: “Whilst we cannot comment on individual cases we urge everyone to be vigilant in using fake lip kits as some of the contents may lead to a reaction of varying severity.”
