Brittany Forster, 24, is just one of many people in the world captivated by Kylie Jenner’s lips. So she did what many of us do when we’re in need of answers… She turned to the Internet.
And she bought a lip enhancement product — which she has since called “the biggest mistake” of her life, after they left her looking less like Kylie, and more like Farrah Abraham following her botched plastic surgery!

The Australia-native purchased “CandyLipz,” which is an apple-shaped device that suctions your lips to provide plumpness, and was devastated with the results.
“I took it off and I just looked in the mirror and I said, ‘Oh my god what have I done? No, no, no this can’t be happening,’” she tells the ‘Daily Mail.’ “As soon as I looked in the mirror I thought, ‘What have I done to myself?’”
Initially, she says, she thought the damage was permanent and her friends tried their best to comfort her.
Four days after the first application, Brittany found that her lips were bruised from the device.

Despite the traumatic experience, shockingly, she doesn’t hold the company responsible.
She tells the ‘Daily Mail,’ “In the instruction leaflet, it does say all these things could happen, like bruising, swelling, etc., but I just thought I was an expert on everything and used it thinking it’ll be fine, what can happen?”

Needless to say, she’s learned her lesson.
“I’m very appreciative of my little lips now,” she says. “Grateful for what I have.”
