The twenty-year-old half sister of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian,
Jenner launched her namesake Kylie Cosmetics business in 2016, which
debuted with $29 lip kits made up of a paired lipstick and eyeliner.

Forbes valued Kylie Cosmetics at close to $800 million, following $630 million worth of cosmetic product sales in the last two years, which has developed to include other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer.

With Jenner reaping all of the profits, the magazine said Jenner’s worth sits at
some $900 million, boosted by her TV programs, endorsements and after-tax
company dividends.

Forbes concluded by saying that another year of growth would make her the
youngest-self made billionaire ever, male or female.

That even beats-out her sister, Kim Kardashian, who has her own cosmetics,
clothing and mobile games lines, and said to be worth $350 million, according to
Forbers.

Jenner first came to the public eye alongside her socialite siblings and family on the reality television series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
