Revealed: The real reason Kylie Jenner kept her lip fillers a secret

Fans of Kylie Jenner were equal parts relieved and unsurprised last week when Kylie Jenner finally came clean about the truth behind her plumped up pout, and now her big sister Kim has revealed why she took so long to open up.

For months Kylie had claimed the change in her lip shape was all down to expertly applied lip liner, but last week's preview of Keeping Up With The Kardashians showed her admitting she had opted for artificial lip fillers. 

"I have temporary lip fillers, it's just an insecurity of mine and it's what I wanted to do," she told the cameras in the episode preview.

"I might have tiptoed around the truth but I didn't lie," she added, explaining why she had given such evasive answers to journalists who asked about her pout.

Kim Kardashian gave some further background to the drama at the launch of her new photo book Selfish, telling Access Hollywood that Kylie had been telling reporters the full truth (at least for a while) and that there was a reason she hadn't come clean before now.

"She didn't lie, it took her a while to actually make that decision to do it and once she decided to plump them. She was still over-lining, then sometimes it would look too big, then she figured out to stop over-lining," Kim said of Kylie's lip evolution.

"People think, 'Oh my god she lied for so long – now she's finally come clean' but that's not really the case, it took her a while to do it," Kylie's stepsister continued.

The quotes from Kim come just days after footage of her warning Kylie not to take things too far with cosmetic surgery were aired in another KUWTK preview.

"Your lips look amazing. I don’t want you to get carried away. Lips aren’t permanent, but like…You only have one life, and what I realised from what all of us have gone through, is to do what makes you happy – to an extent. I don’t want you to go crazy," she is seen telling the 17-year-old.

We're hoping Kylie stops at the lip fillers – she's beautiful as she is.
