Kylie Jenner has been named on Forbes' 30 under-30 list. The lip kit founder is the second highest annual earner overall in her family, after her half-sister Kim Kardashian, as per Forbes. Also, the 19-year-old star is one of the youngest persons to be named as a retail and e-commerce entrepreneur.
"The reality TV star's Kylie Cosmetics line has gone from strength to strength, with each incarnation of her $29 Lip Kits selling out upon release. Sources close to the teenager suggest the glosses did 7 figures in revenues in 2016 alone," Forbes writes.
According to Forbes, a part of her revenue comes from the apparel line to which she puts her name along with her model sister, Kendall Jenner. And, she is the second-highest earner after her sister Kim Kardashian as Forbes estimated in November 2016. Kim Kardashian raked in $51 million, while Kylie earned $18 million.
