It's been five long years since the world became obsessed with Kylie Jenner and her killer lips. After attributing her plump pout to lip liner, Ky admitted she'd actually been getting fillers on the down-low. In 2015, Ky said she wanted to tell the truth from the start, 'but people are so quick to judge me on everything'.

Now the youngest Jenner sister has opened up about why she decided to get the procedure done, revealing that she started getting injections at just 15 years old.

"I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips. I have really small lips," she said on her latest ep of Life of Kylie. "And it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, 'I didn't think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.'"

Sidenote: Can we just take a second to acknowledge how much of a DICK that guy is?

"I took that really hard," she continued. "When a guy you like says that, I don't know, it just really affected me. I just didn't feel desirable or pretty."

"I would overline my lips with the lip liner to create the illusion of bigger lips and then, finally, I was like, this lip liner isn't doing it and ended up getting my lips done."

This isn't the first time Ky's spoken about her fillers, telling Complex, "I felt like no one wanted to kiss me." It is, however, the first time she's spoken about it on camera.

Props to Ky for talking candidly about her insecurities. We all have stuff we feel self-conscious about, but it takes balls do it in front of the entire world.
