Our obsession with selfies has led to a rise in 'liquid nose jobs'

Our obsession with selfies is making more and more women get "liquid nose jobs," according to the New York Post. Though many people haven't heard of this procedure, it's becoming more and more popular.

A liquid nose job is when a doctor injects fillers to shape the nose; think hylauronic acid. The same kind that's used to plump up lips, fill out baggy circles under the eyes or to fill out chin lines, according to KHOU.

But there are some major differences between nonsurgical rhinoplasty and the real thing.

It takes about 5 minutes, the results are immediate, unlike spending weeks out of commission with a real nose job, results last about a year and it's way cheaper!

This chunky lip pencil is the grandaddy of them all, with legions of devoted fans singing its praises. While there are several different finishes — including Gloss and the new Satin iteration — we think Matte is the one the deserves the shout-out here. Not only are the 18 hue options all absolutely breathtaking, the color refuses to budge. All that and a velvety, sueded finish means this crayon has a permanent place in our makeup bags.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, $25, available at NARS.

Based on New York Post estimates, $800 is a steal compared to $15,000 for an actual nose job.

But there are risks, according to the outlet, such as compressed blood flow to the nose or blindness if the injection hits an artery.

The Post reports that instead of women showing their doctor's pics of celebs, they're armed with selfies that have been touched up with filters they've used to get their perfect nose.

But there are some schnozes it won't work for. Liquid nose jobs can't shrink your nose or hide a large hook.

So if you don't want to go under the knife, doctors compare the procedure to the next generation of makeup.

Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's a liquid nose job!
