The Estimate Net Worth Of Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is an American reality television personality, model, entrepreneur, socialite, and social media personality. You probably know her from the TV show, ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The vast majority of her net worth comes from a cosmetics company called Kylie Cosmetics. In November 2019, Kylie sold 51% of her company to Coty Inc. for $600 million. Valuing the company as a whole at $1.2 billion.
As of May 2020, that value has declined significantly. Kylie definitely earned around $340 million after taxes from the sale, but the value of her remaining 45% stake in the brand has gone down significantly.
Nevertheless, Kylie has been hugely successful with her empire of Kylie Cosmetics which she founded in 2015. Jenner is now 23 years old and has a 2-year-old baby girl with rapper Travis Scott.
How She Made Her Money
The reality TV star can credit her bank statement to her globally famous cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics.
Kylie founded the brand in 2015 by selling lip kits consisting of lipsticks and a matching lip liner.
She has since expanded the business to sell a range of other cosmetics such as blushers, highlighters, concealers, eyeshadow palettes, and even skincare – products which are all just as popular as her lip kits.
This and the extortionate price she can charge for social media posts mean she’s boosted her fortune by millions over the past few years.
Kylie cemented her place at the top of the youngest earners list in November 2019 when she sold 51 per cent of her makeup brand to multi-national beauty company Coty Inc for $600million (£490million).
Kylie Cosmetics was valued at $1.2billion (£1.1billion) at the time, meaning she still receives a generous pay check from her remaining 49 per cent share.
That same month she rose to the top of the Instagram Rich List according to HopperHQ, meaning she rakes in on average $1,266,000 (£1 million) per sponsored social media post.
