It is a feature on "America's Women Billionaires".

Once she crosses the $1 billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

Big sister Kim Kardashian West is estimated to be worth $US 350 million and graced the cover of Forbes in July 2016 and was touted as a mobile mogul for her successful mobile phone game "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood".

"Despite the fact that Kylie is a master of branding and has made an nearly billion-dollar business off her lips and cosmetics, once Stormi was born, Kylie realized she was a mother first, and that is a big reason she has been sporting the more natural look", the source adds.

As people debate Forbes' decision to put Kylie Jenner on a list of "self-made" billionaires, Dictionary.com is wading into the discourse. Jenner is the sole owner, reaping all the profits.

The story also reports Jenner, who became a mom in February, has also earned several million from her share of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and endorsement deals with Puma and PacSun. "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation-women running family businesses".

"It is not shade to point out that Kylie Jenner isn't self-made", Gay tweeted.

The bulk of her income is derived from Kylie Cosmetics, best known for its lip kits. "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", its post stated yesterday, July 11. Used in a sentence: "Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".
