The 20-year-old is worth an estimated 900 million dollars, business magazine Forbes said Wednesday ahead of its August edition, which features Jenner on its cover.
“What her half-sister Kim Kardashian West did for booty, Jenner has done for full lips. Like Kardashian West, she has leveraged her assets to gain both fame and money. But while her sister is best-known for the former, Jenner has proved adept at the latter,” the article states.
Jenner in 2016 launched makeup company Kylie Cosmetics, which has since gone on to huge success with a range of products designed to help customers’ lips look bigger through filling and over-lining.
“Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided. Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman,” Dictionary.com tweeted.
“‘Self-made’? Really? It’s easy to become a billionaire when you’re (sic) parents are millionaires… It’s called generational wealth + nepotism,” L’Oreal Luxe’s US media manager Shelby Ivey Christie wrote on Twitter.
Jenner, who last year became the youngest person to feature on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, is the youngest child of Caitlin (formerly Bruce) and Kris Jenner.
