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

She shared the Forbes magazine cover for Kylie Jenner with the caption: "She was always trolled for getting her lips done, bullied all the time".

This huge feat propelled her to the top of Forbes' annual list of America's Richest Self-Made Women - coming in at No. 27 - and landed her the cover of the esteemed mag. So Kylie Jenner made Forbes and there's been so much talk about it, from if she's really "self- made" to doubts and much more. Self-made. Even Dictionary.com roasted the magazine for the title, Tweeting yesterday "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided".

Meanwhile, the official Twitter account for Dictionary.com also took a jab on Forbes' cover.

Forbes reports that Kylie Cosmetics, founded in 2016 and famous for its Lip Kits, is now worth almost $800 million and the beauty mogul, who until recently opted for fillers to make her ow lips look plump, owns 100 per cent of the company.

Other netizens seem to think that Jenner deserved being labeled as a "self-made billionaire" because while she was born into a multi-millionaire family, she did work and is continuously working hard.

Forbes released an Instagram photo for the cover of the August 31 issue of the magazine yesterday, July 11.

According to a conservative estimate made by the magazine her cosmetics line [Kylie cosmetics] is worth around $800 million. "Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".
