Kim Kardashian West Admits She’s Jealous of This 1 Thing About Kylie Jenner
Kim Kardashian West was, for a long time, the most famous member of the Kardashian-Jenner family. When Keeping Up With the Kardashians first premiered back in 2007, Kardashian West was largely the main focus of the show — and still is. But since then, her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, has given the reality star a run for her money in terms of who is the most famous family member.
Jenner and Kardashian West have a very close relationship, but recently, Jenner proved that she might be the more famous sister after all. And the reason for it has seemingly made Kardashian West jealous.
Jenner and Kardashian have both made money in cosmetics
Growing up, Jenner always loved makeup, but nobody would have guessed she’d make such a successful career out of it. In 2015, Jenner launched her Kylie Lip Kits, which were lip-liner kits that gave consumers a colorful, plump pout. The kits sold out within minutes, and Jenner officially named the brand Kylie Cosmetics in 2016. Since then, she’s expanded to many different areas of makeup — and has a skincare line, too.
Kardashian West founded her beauty brand, KKW Beauty, back in 2017 after releasing her contour kits. She also owns two additional lines: KKW Fragrance, a perfume line, and Skims, a shapewear line.
Jenner recently surpassed Kardashian West in Instagram followers
For as long as the Kardashians have had Instagram, Kardashian-West has always led the pack in followers. But Jenner recently surpassed her, edging out the KKW Beauty founder right around the 155 million mark; she’s been ahead ever since. It’s possible Jenner gained more followers because she started an account on the app at such a young age; Kardashian West was already in her 30s by the time she launched her Instagram account.
Jenner has seen more success than any of her family members — and at a much younger age.
Kardashian West just suggested that she’s jealous Jenner has more Instagram followers
Jenner and Kardashian West recently got together to film a YouTube video, where Jenner did Kardashian West’s makeup while the two answered questions fans had asked. Toward the end, Jenner accidentally plucked one of Kardashian-West’s eyelashes, and the two decided to make a wish on it (before Jenner ended up keeping it). “I just wished I would beat you on Instagram again,” Kardashian West said. The comment suggested Kardashian West is jealous that her littlest sister has more Instagram followers than she does.
Jenner has her family beat in net worth as well
Not only does Jenner beat her entire family in Instagram followers, but she also beats them in net worth. Earlier this year, Forbes named Jenner the world’s youngest self-made billionaire after Kylie Cosmetics was valued at $900 million (at the time, Jenner had a personal net worth of $100 million and owned 100% of the company). Last fall, she sold 51% of her company to Coty, another global cosmetics company, for $600 million. This valued the brand at $1.2 billion and bumped Jenner’s net worth up to $1.3 billion. Kardashian West is far behind, with a net worth of $370 million (we’d still take that, though).
