In case you hadn’t noticed, Kylie Jenner’s net worth is a hotly-debated topic these days. Like, Ryan Murphy should probably start writing the script for Feud: Kylie vs. Forbes, that’s all I’m saying. We’ll get into the specifics in a moment, but the TL;DR is that there was a lot of fuss when Kylie became the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire at just 21—but then Forbes was all “PLOT TWIST” and dropped an article with the instantly-iconic headline “Inside Kylie Jenner’s Web of Lies—and Why She’s No Longer a Billionaire.” Honestly, it’s a lot—but either way, Kylie has still got a fortune to her name, so let’s break down all the ways she’s made her literal tons of money:
She Earned Major $$$$ from KUWTK
The show might be ending after 84 million years, but Kylie Jenner’s paycheck will last forever. The Kardashians have made hundreds of millions thanks to KUWTK, and they split their paychecks pretty evenly. As momager Kris Jenner told Ellen, “Everybody gets paid pretty much equally, ’cause we all film a lot and we all work hard, and we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade…Everybody’s happy.”
Head below for a full breakdown of the Kardashians’ E! earnings (reminder: they’re about to rollover their 401k—kidding—and make big money from Hulu!), but it’s safe to say Kylie’s made multi-millions:
Sooo, About Kylie Cosmetics…
It’s made Kylie a mountain of cash, but there’s some iffy-ness on the exact figures. In their ~investigation~ into Kylie’s alleged “web of lies,” Forbes claimed that Kylie Cosmetics “is significantly smaller and less profitable than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets to believe.” They also said that after reviewing documents from Coty (the company that purchased 51 percent of Kylie Cosmetics in November 2019), it appeared as though Kylie Cosmetics took in $177 million in 2018, not the $360 million that Forbes was initially led to believe. (Note: Kyle’s reps denied claims made in the Forbes article.)
I mean…of course I’d like to know the truth, but also money is money and the fact remains that Kylie Cosmetics made Kylie all-caps RICH.
Also, Don’t Forget About Her Endorsements
Kylie’s had endorsement deals with brands like PacSun and Puma, and all the way back in 2016, Forbes estimated that close to 20 percent of her $18 million earnings came from those deals. She doesn’t do quite as much sponcon these days (I mean…she doesn’t need to), but DAMN.

So, What’s Kylie’s Total Net Worth?
In their ~web of lies~ article from May 2020, Forbes put Kylie’s net worth at just under $900 million thanks to money from Kylie Cosmetics, endorsement deals, her clothing line with Kendall Jenner, and, of course, her stint on KUWTK (not to mention the forever-cherished Life of Kylie). But flash-forward to October 2020, and Forbes had re-calculated her net worth, dropping it a full $200 million down to $700 million (which is the same number the brains over at Celebrity Net Worth report).
In other words, Kylie is (allegedly!) no longer a billionaire, but when you’re that rich, who’s even counting?
