Kylie Jenner used to try and hide her lips.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star, 18 - who was forced to confirm she'd had temporarily lip injections earlier this year - has admitted she's always been insecure about her mouth area and would avoid talking to people - particularly boys - out of fear they were criticising her look.

She explained to the February issue of ELLE magazine: "I was so insecure about my lips. Even now I always post photos where my finger is always in front of my mouth... it's a habit: I would always cover my lips. I couldn't even talk to people. Or guys. Like, [I'd be thinking]: 'I know you're looking at my lips, but you so don't want to kiss me right now.' "

Despite her insecurities about her lips, the brunette beauty is on a mission to make other people feel more confident about their plump pouts by recently releasing her Lip Kit By Kylie.

And the lipgloss line - featuring three shades named Dolce K, Candy K, and TrueBrown K - proved so popular with fans that it sold out in just 30 seconds and broke the internet.

Kylie's decision to release a lip line came just months after she was slammed with criticism for undergoing a non-surgical cosmetic procedure to plump up her pout last year.

The curvaceous babe was forced to reveal she has had temporary lip enhancement injections on an episode of their family E! reality TV show in May after the #KylieJennerChallenge, which saw young fans attempt to mimic her lip look by sucking on the rim of a cup, went viral.
