'It has been an insecurity of mine all my life,' Kylie told the magazine.
Insecure: Kylie Jenner says she got fillers in her lips due to feeling insecure; The 19-year-old told Complex she worried about boys wanting to kiss her as she feared her lips were too thin
She recalled in the interview how in middle school a boy reacted to her lips: 'This guy I kissed was like, "Your lips are really small but you’re a really good kisser. I didn’t think you were gonna be good at kissing."'
'It was so rude,' Kylie said. 'From then on, I just felt like I saw guys staring at my lips. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me.'
Rumors she had work done on her lips first emerged in 2014 but at the time she denied it.
Something different: The star opted to go topless for the racy photoshoot
Shake your pom pom like Kylie in heels by Alaïa
We're sensing a bit of theme in Kylie Jenner's Complex cover shoot.
There's a whole lot of latex going on and you'd be forgiven for mistaking Kylie for her big sister Kim Kardashian. Especially since she owns these very heels!
They're by Alaïa and this pom pom embellished style is iconic. They are instantly recognizable and have also been worn by Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen, and pretty much all of the other members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Talk about keeping it in the family!
If you're a bit of a heelaholic then these Alaïa beauties are the ultimate addition to your collection. Click the link (right) to buy them now at Net-a-Porter, then team yours with a classic LBD to really knock their socks off on your next night out.
Or put your best foot forward in a pair of pom pom heels from the edit below.
Look familiar? Kylie's pink latex certainly seemed inspired by Kim's love of the skintight look (seen in June 2015)
Just enough: Kylie barely maintained her modesty for the creative spread
However in 2015 she finally admitted to having fillers, starting at the age of 16, on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
On why she lied, Jenner said: 'I didn’t want to be a bad influence. I didn’t want people to think you had to get your lips done to feel good about yourself.'
Kylie did, however, admit she went a bit too far with the injections at first: 'When you first get them done, you’re like, "Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side." I’d go back and be like, "They went down" and think they could be bigger. But I went too far. It was very painful.'

She also went on to insist that lip fillers were the only cosmetic work she has had done: 'It’s annoying to hear every day that you’re just this fake, plastic person when you’re not. Every single day there was a news story about me.'
Meanwhile, her sister Khloe Kardashian spoke out again in support of Kylie dating much older beau Tyga, 26.
'I didn’t think much of the age situation,' Khloe admitted. 'I dated older guys when I was her age. I think all my sisters did. That’s what all girls do, it’s just not so public.'

Kylie went on to reveal how friends advised against dating the older rapper: 'The first year we started hanging out, everyone around him told him not to be with me. I still get comments like, "Don’t be with him." But we’re not doing it for the public—we love each other. We need to be together at all times. We never get mad at each other, we just figure things out.'
However, Kylie confirmed she did take a break from Tyga this past May.
'I just needed to see what it was like not being with him,' she explained, 'we realized that wasn’t what we wanted.'
She also hinted that she may have had a brief romance with PartyNextDoor: 'Me and Party have a cool relationship. I think he’s so talented and I love his music. But I wouldn’t say we dated. It never really got to that boyfriend-girlfriend stage. It was just fun. I was doing what I wanted to do.'
Going on four years: Kylie began getting injections at age 15 (seen on L this year and on R in 2013)
'It has been an insecurity of mine all my life,' Kylie told the magazine (seen on L this year and on R when she was 14 in 2012)
Feeling herself: The star, who opened up about getting lips injections, was seen with a bright pout on Monday evening while out in Los Angeles
She also said of Tyga's baby mama and ex Blac Chyna, who is now expecting a child with Rob Kardashian: 'We’re totally fine. It’s all love.'
In the photoshoot Kylie not only goes topless but wears a skintight pink latex getup reminiscent of Kim's love for the kinky attire.
The October issue of Complex is on magazine shelves now.
Happy times: Kylie and Tyga seen on Saturday at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios
