Congrats are in order for our fave Kylie Jenner who is officially America’s youngest self-made billionaire!!!!
We may be slightly late to the party, but it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t pay homage to this ultimate boss babe.
Most of us are no stranger to the Kardashian-Jenner clang who have dominated our TV screens for years. Since Kylie’s first appearance on Keeping Up with the Kardashians at 10 years old, she has definitely made her mark; landing her own reality show spinoff, launching a successful beauty empire, giving us fashion goalssss af, and not to mention, doing all of this whilst becoming a new mum.
Her efforts have not gone unrewarded as she is now worth a whole $1 billion!!
“Alexa play how many zeros are there in a billion?” *@~#!!@**!!
Whilst we are alllllllllllll the way here for Kylie’s new-found fortune, we’ve noticed that not everyone is singing the same tune. Many people have expressed their outrage over Kylie being described as “self-made” and insist her achievements are down to her family success. If this were the case wouldn’t they all be billionaires?
It’s time we gave sis her accolades!!
What’s the tea?
Sooo here’s how Kylie hit the jackpot…
2015 brought us the launch of Kylie Cosmetics, selling $29 lip kits which had everyone going crazy - the matching matte liquid lipsticks and liners flew off the shelves! It’s safe to say business is BOOMING was an understatement as 6 weeks after release, Kylie had already sold $54.5 million worth of products in US mega beauty chain Ulta – that’s not to mention the online sales! Ulta has continued to create more opportunities for Kylie’s brand, last year taking sales to an estimated $360 million.
This year the Kylie Cosmetic’s empire is said to be worth $900 million - $1 billion alone (btw Kylie has 100% ownership of this beauty gold mine). Her passion and hard work shines through her expanding product range and the A1 marketing visuals she delivers time and time again. So, if we mix this in with Kylie’s other jobs is it any wonder she’s laughing all the way to the bank???
On that note, ALL HAIL KING KYLIE - a perfect example of a WMN that gets sh*t done!
