King Kylie! Forbes says Jenner is set to be youngest self-made billionaire

The youngest person to ever make an appearance on the Forbes list, Kylie Jenner's fortune is more than twice as large as her second-eldest sister, Kardashian West, who Forbes listed as worth $350 million.

In 2016, Kylie Cosmetics debuted with a $29 "lip kit" (for the uninitiated, it's a matching lipstick and liner duo), and, according to Forbes, she has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since - including an estimated $330 million in 2017 alone.

The mag values her Kylie Cosmetics makeup company - of which she owns 100% of - at almost $800 million.

Adding millions from TV programs, endorsements and after-tax dividends from her company, Forbes said Jenner was "conservatively" worth $900 million.

Being in the spotlight with her famous family at such a young age, Kylie says she was always experimenting with beauty products, and felt passionate about makeup early on. The magazine estimates Jenner's net worth to be roughly $900 million, making her the 27th-richest self-made woman in the United States. "I don't want to do it with anyone else", Kylie told Forbes. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers".

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. "Kim is not giving her credit for coming up with these things, and Kylie is just sick of it".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (R) and Kim Yong Chol (L). "It can be your miracle in North Korea as well", Pompeo said. Japan's Abe had praised Pompeo for his strong leadership on the issue after speaking with the Secretary of State Sunday.

The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is used to copping criticism over her clothing or looks but this time it's a Forbes magazine cover that has everyone talking.

Some people are taking issue with Forbes putting Kylie Jenner on a list of "self-made" billionaires - but the publication's reasoning makes sense.

"Before I even refreshed the page, everything was sold out", Jenner said.

"Thank you @Forbes for this article and the recognition", added Kylie.

"Maybe one day [I'll] pass this on to Stormi, if she's into it".

Describing Kylie's business success, Forbes wrote on its website, "Jenner runs one of the hottest makeup companies ever. I've learned so much along the way and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams".
