The 20-year-old reality star covers Forbes' America's Richest Self-Made Women issue, and gets candid about how she built her impressive $900 million fortune in less than three years.

And let's not sleep on this, her momager Kris Jenner no doubt is set for a hefty chunk of the change.

As people debate Forbes' decision to put Kylie Jenner on a list of "self-made" billionaires, Dictionary.com is wading into the discourse.

The beauty guru debuted her Kylie Cosmetics line two years ago, and it has since sold more than $630 million worth of makeup, the outlet reports.


"Social media is an unbelievable platform", Jenner says of the digital space she uses to her advantage.

Following the release of Kylie's feature, proud sister Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter to congratulate her on making the cover. I have such easy access to my fans and my customers'.

The 20-year-old's net worth has skyrocketed thanks to the success of Kylie Cosmetics.

Forbes says Jenner, who recently become a mom, is likely to break Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's record for being the youngest self-made billionaire at age 23 - though some will argue that Jenner's success isn't entirely "self-made."


As Radar readers know, Kim and Kylie have been involved in a battle of the influencers ever since Kylie's lip injections and makeup line launched her massive career.

"Ever since I was in sixth grade, I would wear purple eye shadow", she remembers.

In a video interview with the same magazine, Kylie says she was inspired to create these lips kits due to her own insecurity about her own lips. "I don't want to do it with anyone else, '" Jenner told Forbes, saying she used almost a quarter million dollars of her own money from modeling to make the first 15,000 lip kits.

"Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20 percent discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eyeshadow and concealer, at almost $800 million". Jenner is both the face of the company and the sole owner.


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