‘Devil lips’ have become the latest – and possibly the most bizarre – beauty trend to creep into people’s social media feeds this year.

The viral sensation, which is thought to have originated in Russia, is now trending on Instagram in the UK – with experts and doctors warning Brits to avoid the new look.

Labelled ‘unnatural’ and dangerous, the cosmetic trend sees women use lip fillers or makeup to create devil-inspired wavy pouts.

The semi-permanent procedure is believed to involve injecting filler into the outer lip to create an unusual wave.

Dr Krystyna, a London-based Cosmetic Dentist and Facial Aesthetician said: ‘You cannot change the anatomical shape of the lips like this.  

‘You can sharpen and contour by enhancing the vermillion border, but these “devil lips” are unnatural. 

‘Filler injected inappropriately could end up in a blood vessels, causing blockages and leading to necrosis (death) of the tissue. 

‘The vessels are around the lips, so using filler inappropriately is what can cause this.’

But for beauty fans wanting to go down a less risky route, the ‘devil’ or ‘octopus’ lips are mimicked using makeup or Photoshop.

The trend has been met with mixed reactions on social media, with comments ranging from ‘hideous’ to ‘I think I like it’.

Celebrities such as Rochelle Humes have labelled it ‘scary’, while a makeup artist said: ‘Try applying for a job with lips like that’.

But other individuals online have admitted that they ‘kind of like’ the new beauty trend

She said: ‘It looks unnatural and ridiculous. The clue is in the title really… it is unnecessary disfigurement! Whether it is tattooing and/or filler… it looks terrible. 

‘I thought it was Photoshop and a joke for Halloween when I first saw it but apparently not. 

‘Please don’t be naive and follow silly trends like this,’ the expert added. ‘You will not be able to reverse it easily and go back to your natural lips if at all. 

‘Your lip border will be distorted and it won’t wear off evenly so you will have frilly lips for years to come.’
