Two Grown-Ass Women Take on the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

For a few years, Kylie Jenner, youngest daughter of Kris and Bruce Jenner, flew under the radar. But thanks to the power of social media, she is invisible no more. Kylie has her own hair extensions line, and has become famous for carefully-orchestrated photos showcasing her suddenly pouty, oversize lips, attributed to wizardly makeup application rather than needles.

Can two less-skilled women capture this look? If a crop top falls in the woods, and no one Instagrams it, does it make a sound? The answer to both of those questions is "no." Enjoy our second-to-last episode of 'Try Hards,' and tune in next Tuesday at 10am for the final installment!
