Kylie Jenner Makes Forbes’ “30 Under 30” List for 2017
Kylie Jenner is making a name for herself in the industry, separate from her Kardashian sisters. The 19-year-old entrepreneur just landed on Forbes' "30 Under 30" list for 2017.
In the "E-commerce and Retail" section of their listing, Kylie earned her spot on the list for her brand, Kylie Cosmetics. The makeup line launched in 2016 after her success with her signature lip kits has brought in millions of dollars for the teen. Her products have sold out in mere seconds online and since then, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has launched her own store, as well.
Forbes honored this business mind-state by putting her on their list for 2017. They said,
"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. Jenner also puts her name to an apparel line, alongside model sister Kendall. Per Forbes' estimates, she's the second-highest annual earner overall in her family, after half-sister Kim Kardashian."
Kylie, was of course, honored for the mention on the famous and notorious list. She thanked Forbes by posting this photo to her Instagram saying,
"Forbes 30 under 30 .. Thank you 🙌🏼"
