How two words on Kylie Jenner’s latest magazine cover have left people seething.

Reality TV star and beauty mogul Kylie Jenner is on track to become the world’s youngest billionaire in history.

The 20-year-old, who featured on the cover of Forbes magazine this week, was just named as the 27th-richest self-made woman in America.

With the combination of her appearances on her family’s reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, social media endorsements and her wildly successful makeup company Kylie Cosmetics, Kylie is reportedly worth $900 million, putting her well on track to become a billionaire by age 21.

The majority of Kylie’s fortune stems from the cosmetics company she launched just two years ago. According to Forbes, the company is valued at roughly $800 million, with Kylie owning 100 per cent of the cosmetics giant.

The company was initially launched with a range of $29 matte lip kits straight off the back of Kylie’s famous ‘full-lip‘ look. It now also sells eye shadow palettes, concealers and regularly launches pop-up stores.

“What her half-sister Kim Kardashian West did for booty, Jenner has done for full lips,” Forbes wrote.

According to the Forbes, the young mum even ranks higher than her 37-year-old sister Kim Kardashian West, who is reportedly worth $350 million at 54th on the rich list.

Forbes estimates that by next year, Kylie will surpass the likes of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever.

But online, Twitter users were angered by the magazine’s decision to describe Kylie as “self-made”, with many arguing that Kylie shouldn’t be included on the list as she was born into her wealth and fame.
