Kylie Jenner is the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. Her makeup brand, Kylie Cosmetics, has provided her with more wealth than she could have ever imagined. Jenner loves to show off her riches, from Birkin bags to Lamborghinis — but she also recently showed fans that she likes to shop at one surprisingly affordable store.
Kylie Jenner’s makeup brand has given her a $1 billion net worth
Growing up, Kylie Jenner wasn’t sure where she wanted her life to go. But when she started receiving lip fillers at 17, she realized her lips posed a good business opportunity for women who wanted plump, full lips without the facial filler.
Jenner might only be 22, but she has more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetime. She first launched Kylie Lip Kits back in 2015, and the response to the makeup was incredible. Since then, Jenner, along with her mom, has developed Kylie Cosmetics, which officially launched in 2017. By spring 2019, Forbes had dubbed Jenner the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. In fall 2019, Jenner decided to sell 51% of her company for $600 million with the hope of expanding to reach a larger, more global audience. The sale price valued Kylie Cosmetics at a whopping $1.2 billion.
She loves to show off her wealth on social media
Jenner can afford pretty much anything she wants, and she makes that known in her social media posts. She constantly posts photos wearing expensive outfits (mostly Chanel or Fendi) that are worth thousands each. Jenner also tends to keep it casual while standing in front of her massive, multi-million-dollar car collection. The beauty mogul recently posted a photo of several Hermès bags sitting in her closet, which are easily worth thousands apiece. Plus, she always flies on private jets and even posts pictures flying with Stormi.
One of Jenner’s most iconic photos was taken while sitting on a private jet with her mother; the two women were wearing big sunglasses and holding matching $150,000 Birkin bags.
Fans recently noticed Jenner was wearing something from Old Navy
Jenner can purchase clothing from any brand she wants, but fans were shocked to see what she was wearing in her recent Christmas photo. The photo showed Jenner giving Stormi a kiss under the Christmas tree; mother and daughter were wearing matching pajama sets. But Jenner’s feet were front and center in the shot, and fans immediately realized she was wearing a pair of Christmas socks from Old Navy.
“I got them [sic] socks at Old Navy $3,” one user wrote. “… You shop at Old Navy!” someone else added. “I have those socks on [right now] too… Old Navy!” another user commented. Fans felt like the socks normalized Jenner a bit; everyone is so used to seeing her in glamorous looks that it was likely hard to imagine her in anything besides designer brands. But Jenner proved to all of her fans that as long as something is cute (such as a fun pair of Christmas socks), she’s willing to buy it, regardless of where it’s from.
