A TikTok challenge in which people super-glue their lips with eyelash adhesive or nail glue to make them look fuller has gone viral over the internet.
The new trend started with user @chloehammock4 when she posted a video of herself putting glue just above her cupid’s bow and then sticking her upper lip up in order for it to appear full, news portal Dazeddigital reported.

However, there were others who expressed objections to the trend.
Just read that teens are gluing their upper lip to make them look bigger on @tiktok_us . If they lack intelligence that badly/ maybe apply the glue two both lips and seal them shut..thus preventing further stupidity from spreading #lipglue #wtf— ericadeemack (@ericadeemack) September 11, 2019
Being Black and having full lips is a blessing 😭😂 literally everybody wants the looks they clowned us for— Bye (@Queen_Soul01) September 7, 2019
Since the video was posted couple of days back, it has been viewed more then 4.5 million times and received over three thousand comments.
In 2015, the viral Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge saw teens sticking their lips into small containers and sucking the air out of it to create a vacuum, the report added.
