Chrissy Teigen is candid as can be, even about her cosmetic procedures. (Remember when she shared her breast-implant-removal journey?) So if she got lip filler, she'd be the first to tell you. That's why we completely believe her when she says the reason her lips suddenly looked so plump over the weekend is not due to injectable filler overload.
"You're all just gonna think that I got lip fillers, but I didn't get lip fillers between last night and now," she says in a selfie video posted to her Instagram Stories, her bottom lip noticeably swollen. "I, like, zocor lamictal bit an orange to try to open it, and I think there must've been, like, a pesticide or something on it."
She's laughing at herself, but clearly uncomfortable. "Look at this. It's, like, hard," she says touching it. "Look how bouncy it is."
In the next clip, she appears to be trying to make the most of it with a low-key glam look, but she wrote over the video, "Nose is swollen too lol." In yet another clip, she says, "I feel like it's getting bigger."
And from the looks of the two photos she posted to her Instagram grid on Sunday, it does appear to have initially worsened, with her top lip significantly swelling as well. "LMAO lookin great!! not filler fail – I’d tell you! I don’t give a shit," she wrote in the caption. "It happened after I bit the skin of a suspicious orange. Maybe pesticides on the outside? I look like a juicy blow up doll, freshly unpacked."
Luckily, dermatologist Sandra Lee, also known as Dr. Pimple Popper, was there in the comments with a diagnosis and a recommendation: "Allergy of course. Take antihistamine and of course no more eating the suspicious fruit! ❤️" (Lee has come through for Teigen before with advice for dealing with a stubborn cystic pimple.)
By Sunday night, the outlook was improving. In an Instagram Stories clip with daughter Luna, Teigen said, "Getting better. Lips are getting better." In fact, her lips weren't nearly as noticeable as her glowing complexion. Luna even said, "You're so shiny!"
If you ever find yourself in a similarly swollen situation, be sure to consult a doctor ASAP, as allergic reactions can become a very serious medical situation.
