She was dubbed as a billionaire by Forbes in 2019 but that crown was taken away as allegations of clickbait marketing, exaggeration of business size and profitability, and misleading publications came into picture in 2020. However, that she is a business mogul cannot be denied. The reality TV star’s net worth has been a thing of interest for her arduous admirers as well as sceptics. So, let’s dive deep into Kylie Jenner’s bank balance.
She is the most followed person on Instagram as of 2022 and boasts of being one of America’s self-made woman according to Forbes. Kylie Kristen Jenner popularly known as Kylie Jenner needs to no introduction as she’s a much sought-after socialite.
From being labelled as a ‘climate criminal’ to being accused of covering up for Balenciaga’s recent scandal, Kylie Jenner has been creating quite a stir with her presence on social media.
A look at Kylie Jenner’s net worth
While several reports claim that the American reality TV star has a net worth of USD 1 billion as of 2022, Forbes says otherwise. According to Forbes June 2022 edition, Kylie Jenner’s net worth is around USD 600 million. While most of her fortunes come from her maquillage empire, Instagram is yet another source of her major earnings.
While Kylie’s signature cosmetic brand, ‘Kylie Cosmetics’ is a pioneering make-up brand, the social media star started making money from the age of 9 when she starred on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK). According to People, the Kardashian-Jenner family collectively earned about USD 30 million per season of KUWTK until 2017. However, it’s unclear how much each family member made exactly. On that note, various reports suggest that Kylie is getting a humongous pay for her stint on The Kardashians – a reality TV series that is exclusive to streaming platform Hulu.
She also earns in big numbers from her Instagram account. Until last year, she charged a little more than USD 1.5 million from each post on her Instagram account, according to leading Hollywood portal The Things.
Coming to Kylie Jenner’s major source of revenue, the reality TV star who’s the founder of Kylie Cosmetics, sold 51 percent of her empire to global beauty company, Coty, for a whopping USD 600 million. It is to be known that the manufacturing, packaging, and sales of Kylie Cosmetics products are all subcontracted to private companies. Pre-pandemic, that is, in 2019, she launched a skincare line named Kylie Skin. Fast forward to 2021, she also introduced Kylie Swim and Kylie Baby as other sister brands.
She also serves as a brand ambassador for brands like Adidas and Fashion Nova and gets paid in huge numbers for promoting them on her Instagram account.
Not many know, Kylie too had started her show Life of Kylie in 2017 but it wasn’t able to hold the viewers’ attention for too long. Kylie launched her first batch of Lip Kits when she was just 18 years old in 2015. In 2013, she had started a clothing line along with her sister Kendall Jenner, Kendall + Kylie for PacSun. The label is still significant till date.
