Reality star Kylie Jenner, 20, on track to be billionaire

Travis Scott was not shy at all to express his love for Kylie Jenner.

By comparison, her most famous sister, Kim Kardashian West, is estimated to be worth only US$350 million (AU$475 million).

Both Kylie and Zuckerberg have social media to thank for their success, with Zuckerberg a key architect of the platform and Kylie it's most adept user.

Jezebel's Megan Reynolds echoed the sentiment, writing, "She does owe much of her "self-made" wealth to her mother, Kris Jenner, whose evil genius for marketing her children and creating a capitalist empire around their image deserves far more shine here". "I think I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own", she said.

Forbes reports that Kylie sold a whopping $630 million worth of makeup when the brand initially launched, and a whopping $330 million in 2017. The 20-year-old "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star could beat Mark Zuckerberg for the title of youngest ever self-made billionaire, but people are objecting on the use of the term "self-made".

Kylie Jenner has come under fire for getting her 5-month-old daughter Stormi's ears pierced.

The Kardashian-Jenner family was unfazed by the apparent "shade" thrown at Kylie by Dictionary.com as on Wednesday several family members posted their congratulations on social media. She's also a paid endorser of various products, which means her net worth is even more than that.

Kim reportedly became jealous of her little sis' accomplishments and began copying all of her ideas, including her cosmetics line. Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at almost $800 million.

Back in 2016, Jenner and company first disclosed the brand's earnings in a Women's Wear Daily profile about her journey to become a billion-dollar cosmetics queen. It's her hope that her mini me will some day take over her beauty business.
