She remained coy on the subject for years, but now Kylie Jenner has revealed the real reason why she decided to get lip fillers.

Dicussing her first kiss on her new show Life of Kylie, the 20-year-old recalled the traumatic teenage moment the boy she liked made fun of her lips. Watch Kylie chat about going under the knife in the clip above.

"I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips... I [had] really small lips," the youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan revealed to a therapist on the show.

"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,'" she continued before adding she took the comment "really hard".

"Just when a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me - I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty."

Kylie added the experience left her "really wanting bigger lips", which she tried to create by overlining her lips.

"I would overline my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips. Finally I was like, 'This lip liner isn’t doing it,'" she said, confessing she "ended up getting [her] lips done."

Showing sympathy for the situation, Kylie's therapist said she wasn't surprised the experience stuck with her through the years.

"Isn't it amazing how people can just say a couple things and it's just like gets right in there?" the therapist said.
