If Helen of Troy is the face that launched a thousand ships, Kylie Jenner’s pout launched an $800 Million dollar empire!
It’s been almost three years since she sold her first lip kit and two years since she launched Kylie Cosmetics (which is now valued at around $800 million). Add in her modelling and endorsement gigs, Forbes (conservatively) estimates her to be worth around $900 Million dollars – and she’s only 20 years old!
With her amazing accomplishments and business savvy, the cosmetics queen has landed the cover of Forbes’ “Richest Self-Made Women” issue.
The issue shines the spotlight on the 60 richest self-made women in America. Kylie is no. 27 on the list, and the youngest woman to be featured – alongside female top-earners like Oprah Winfrey ($3.1 billion), Sheryl Sandberg ($1.55 billion), Tory Burch ($800 million), Vera Wang ($630 million), Madonna ($590 million), Donna Karan ($470 million), Céline Dion ($430 million), Judy Sheindlin ($400 million), Barbra Streisand ($400 million), Beyoncé ($355 million), Kim Kardashian ($350 million) and Taylor Swift ($320 million).
If she keeps this up, Forbes predicts she could be the “youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female.”
