Kylie Jenner posts image to Instagram after getting lip fillers again
To aggressively paraphrase Lord Byron, while the Kardashians stand, celebrity culture shall stand; when the Kardashians fall, celebrity culture shall fall; when celebrity culture falls, the world shall fall.
The Kardashian Jenner family have come to dominate popular culture to such an extent that it's basically impossible to imagine what life would look like without them.
The family commands considerable influence in fashion, beauty and society more broadly with their lip kits, makeup ranges, clothing lines and endless fleets of supercars, and it's likely that you - yes, you - know more about the Kardashians than you even realise.
Consider how many families exist - outside your own - that you can name every single member of without even really thinking about it. That's how deep the Kardashians are ingrained in your life, even if you're merely a passive observer.
Arguably the most influential of the sisters these days is Kylie Jenner. After months upon months of fevered speculation as to whether or not she was pregnant, interest in Jenner reached its peak when she finally revealed that she had, indeed, been pregnant, and that she had given birth to baby Stormi.
More recently, Kylie revealed that she had decided to dissolve her lip fillers, a move that was roundly praised - such is her influence that young women everywhere could surely take a positive message away from the decision.
Kylie had previously revealed the insecurities she had with her lips, saying;
"'I had really small lips, and it was, like, one of my first kisses, and a guy was like, 'I didn't think you'd be a good kisser because you have such small lips.'
"I took that really hard. Just when a guy you like says that... I don't know, it just really affected me. I didn't feel desirable or pretty."
It appears, though, that the change was merely a temporary one, after a newly emerged image on Instagram has lead fans to believe that Kylie has once again had lip fillers.
Speaking about taking the decision in the past, Kylie said;
“I would overline my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips. And then finally I was like this lip liner isn’t doing it. [I] ended up getting my lips done.”
2018 has proved a fruitful year for the 21-year-old, who after giving birth to Stormi was later named by Forbes as being well on the way to becoming the world's youngest self-made billionaire, thanks to her makeup empire Kylie Cosmetics.
Though the article sparked a debate as to whether Kylie could truly be described as "self-made", there's no doubt that she's making the most of her talents and business acumen.
