Big lips

There seems to be so many (beautiful) ladies walking about with pumped up lips. Obviously pumped and filled and they just don't look natural; like their top lip doesn't fit/work in the way a top lip should.

I am not body/face confident AT ALL but I don't understand this. I wish everyone could see their own beauty. I wish I could invent a mirror where it's impossible for us and our children to 'see' our 'flaws' (that we beat ourselves up about but no-one else sees).

Has anyone had these fillers? Are you please with the result? Is it permanent?

I have seen some RIDICULOUS lips recently too. I mean totally bonkers ones. Do these women not look at themselves in the mirror and think WTAF?!

I do have a chuckle to myself 👄

This looks like fun. There was a botox thread recently which went well, as I recall.

I saw a photo of one of those TOWIE women yesterday and she has ruined her face with fillers, etc. She must only be in her twenties. I was just wondering why someone close to her doesn't intervene. But to each their own...

Funnily enough I was only thinking this yesterday. I've seen SO MANY women with plumped up looking unnatural lips recently. I know they say that you don't notice good plastic surgery, but my God, if the amount of horrors I've seen are anything to go by, about 95% of the population must have had work done. Which can't be true, so therefore more people who have lip fillers look noticeably 'worked on'

I understand that for some younger woman that whole Towie aesthetic is desirable - the point being that you look 'done.' Perhaps it's a very visible way of showing that you're well off enough to have it done? I don't know. I have nothing against surgery in the slightest; people can do what they want with their faces. But I do find it remarkable that so many people don't mind looking so obviously 'fake.'

I think that women would be more comfortable in their own skin if society judged what they did with that skin a little less.

There are so many threads on other women's eyebrows, makeup, choice of injectables etc and none of those things have any impact whatsoever on anyone but the person involved.

Young women make sartorial choices that offend the eye of their elders, it's been happening forever. Let it go, focus on the inconsiderate parkers.

Unless they're all running around kissing you against your will, it really doesn't matter. They think they look good.

I'm 38 and have shoulder-length naturally grey hair. Am also a bit of a porker but strut about in my bikini on the beach.

If any of that upsets/concerns you, feel free to look in any of the other 359° available.

Live and let live. If it makes a woman or a man happy that's fine. I don't understand those who don't wear makeup or bother with their appearance at all but it's their choice. Doesn't bother me.

Mind you always thought the 'inner beauty' was bollocks. smile

I have had mine done. Not to the extent that these "celebs" z listers have them though. With are very full and even lumpy. I had a large bottom lip and barely there top lip. I had 1ml of lip filler put in and it just gave me a sort of bee stung look not a massive lip. It bruised slightly but that went down. Filler doesn't last long as it dissolved within 6-12 months. I had mine topped up about two weeks ago. I love them, my lips now look equal, but i would never go as big as you see on the TV they look like they are going to explode!

I think each to their own and if that's the look they like then good for them. But it does have its risks and it is expensive.

We had this very conversation this morning after seeing a picture of Katie Price. It's a terrible look - I just don't get it.
I'm not against plastic surgery and if I could afford it would be having a face lift myself but then I'm in my 50s. I'd actually love a bit of Botox but my partner who is in the medical profession is dead set against it.
However the pumped up lips and fillers on 20 somethings is a horrible look.

Kittencatkins123 Wed 17-May-17 09:51:03

It's their faces. I always think it's bloody depressing when women augment their looks with surgery to fit some kind of male/porn/Barbie body ideal - lips are the new boob job I guess. And it's a shame that people can't embrace their differences/natural selves rather than have a load of filler pumped into themselves. BUT I work out, wear make up, diet etc - it's hard to be immune to the pressure we're put under looks wise by media, magazines, models, actresses etc.

Though your thread title triggered a flashback to when I was at school and got bullied for having lips that were too big!!!! I actually wanted to save up to get a lip reduction when I was 18!!!! I have since come to terms with this grin

DonaldStott Wed 17-May-17 09:53:12

Yes fine if it gives an individual confidence etc., but if it looks fake and weird, of course other people will notice and it's okay to say that your own opinion is you don't like that look.

It can look nice when it is understated, but the pouty pics, where the top lip almost come out at a square angle, looks frankly, bizarre.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Wed 17-May-17 09:54:02

I have big lips. All mine too. No fillers in mine. If I I had fillers, I'd look like I'd a vacuum cleaner to my mouth.

itsbetterthanabox Wed 17-May-17 09:54:08

I find it weird they make lips look equal. Naturally most Caucasian people have a fuller bottom than top lip. So it's better to keep that but just make them both fuller.

Maudlinmaud Wed 17-May-17 09:57:38

Natural full pout over here. I have been asked if I've had my lips done. I was affronted. Each to their own. It's fashion.

Sionella Wed 17-May-17 10:00:14

I went to a party where Leslie ash was one of the guests a year or two ago. What a shame that she felt the need to try and change her lips - she was already so beautiful.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Wed 17-May-17 10:02:07

Behold my massive lips. No, I'm not pouting and No, I'm not photogenic either.

Maudlinmaud Wed 17-May-17 10:03:05

Sionella poor Leslie got a hard time in the press didn't she. I think they coined the horrid term trout pout in her honour sad and then she got ill. Awful.

CricketRuntAndRashers Wed 17-May-17 10:04:03

I have really "big" lips...

I hate it when people assume I had fillers...

Sionella Wed 17-May-17 10:05:11

She really did. I think she had some kind of reaction to the fillers or something?

Stansmith01 Wed 17-May-17 10:05:15

I'm the same... I don't get it, I'd say only a few women with thin lips look better with subtle fillers. But at the same time I'm very insecure ha
I have naturally big lips (much bigger than Rosie HW) and they've always been one of my biggest insecurities. They make my face look harsh/bloated. I worry people think I've had fillers (so chosen to look like this) blush
Also, sucks that there are very little options for people with lips that are too big

morningconstitutional2017 Wed 17-May-17 10:05:53

It seems to be the fashion to look 'done' which I think is a shame but each to their own. No doubt when I was young and a skinhead my elders looked askance at me and thought, 'oh dear.'

GripNeeded123 Wed 17-May-17 10:06:08

My top lip is huge naturally. I would hate to think I was being judged about it. sad

Live and let live I say. smile

CricketRuntAndRashers Wed 17-May-17 10:08:49


In my case it's the bottom lip... Same sad

seafoodeatit Wed 17-May-17 10:12:28

I don't get it either but then I don't get anything fashion related! I think it's sad that so many people think they have to look the same/get the same work as their peers, since when did it become a big deal to have your lips filled? I always thought of them as something older ladies with money did to maintain a certain look, now like botox it's being done by people who clearly have no need/wrinkles.
