In the story accompanying the cover, Forbes said they estimate that Kylie Cosmetics has raked in $630 million since it launched in 2015.

21-year-old reality TV-star and entrepreneur Kylie Jenner has made it to the Forbes power list of America's 60 richest self-made women. One more year of growth in Kylie Cosmetics and her other ventures will make her the youngest self made billionaire ever. Zuckerberg now holds the record after passing the threshold at 23.

Of course, it all started with her now-infamous "Kylie Lip Kits", which she reportedly trademarked when she was just 17. In 2017, Jenner was placed on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, the youngest person featured on the list.

She has more than 25.5 million Twitter followers and 110 million on Instagram, while her company also has 16.5 million on the photo sharing app.

On Wednesday, Forbes released its August 2018 "America's Women Billionaires" issue with Jenner on the cover. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers", she told Forbes.

PEOPLE reported that upon its launch, it topped the iTunes Free Apps chart and surpassed the apps of Jenner's sisters, Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner, and Khloe Kardashian. Many have argued that Kylie had nothing but aid in building out her makeup empire - ya know, 'cause her family is filthy rich and famous.

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

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. She has become so dominant on social media that when she tweeted that she had become bored with Snapchat, its parent company's stock lost 6% of its value within a day, around $1.3bn (over R17 billion). While the title is certainly exciting, Jenner's dreams for her business are all about one thing - Stormi. "Her success is commendable but it comes by virtue of her privilege".

Jenner first rose to fame at the age of 10 when she appeared with her family on their eponymous reality show.
