Outrage as Forbes calls Kylie Jenner a 'self-made' billionaire

Outrage as Forbes calls Kylie Jenner a 'self-made' billionaire

Most notably, she has her own makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics which launched in 2015 and whose popular lip kits sold out in under a minute. In comparison, Kim Kardashian West is estimated to have a value of $350 million, making Kylie's worth almost triple the amount of her older sister.

Kylie Jenner has become the youngest person on the fourth annual ranking of America's Richest Self-Made Women by Forbes.

Kylie Jenner, the youngest daughter of the reality TV family in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", is set to become the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, even trumping Mark Zuckerberg's record, according to Forbes. Zuckerberg grabbed the title at age 23 when he became worth a cool billion himself. She takes to Instagram and Snapchat nearly hourly, talking about what Kylie cosmetics she's wearing or about future products and new launches. Jenner is both the face of the company and the sole owner.

A tweet by about Kylie Jenner has many talking this morning.

On Wednesday, Forbes released its August 2018 "America's Women Billionaires" issue with Jenner on the cover. "It could easily be an instant game-changing acquisition for any company on the hunt for a winning brand with a younger customer", senior VP or merchandising at Ulta Tara Simon said.

KYLIE Jenner's latest magazine cover is turning heads and raising eyebrows - but this time it's not for what you'd expect. Thank you for this article and the recognition.

For most South Koreans, there's no real training, with people standing around in gathering spots, staring into their phones or looking frustrated.

Granted, being born into a rich family must have given her a pretty good head start, but her hard work and business mind can't go unnoticed.

Most of her wealth comes from her make-up company Kylie Cosmetics, which has now sold more than $630m (£475m) worth of products. "Social media is an incredible platform", Jenner told Forbes.

However, followers were divided over the 20-year-old's decision to pierce her ears at such a young age. I'm so blessed to do what I love everyday.


Oddly enough, she has since chose to forego her regular lip injections and she's starting to look more like her old-self just as her business is about to burst into the billions bracket.
