  • Kylie Jenner Debuts Stormi's Pierced Ears During Sweet Mother Daughter Moment

Whether you're a Kylie Jenner fan or not, you can't deny that her recent Forbes cover as a self-made billionaire is a pretty damn good accomplishment.

Thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics make-up empire, the 20-year-old is estimated to be worth $900 million, landing the new mum at the number 27 on the magazine's yearly rich list.

The reality TV star and daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner is on the cover of Forbes' America's Women Billionaires issue.

Instagram star The Fat Jewish posted the photo, adding that he is so upset that we live in a world where Kylie is not YET a billionaire, so he started an ironic Go Fund Me page to raise the extra $100 Million.

At the time of publication, the fundraiser had a single donation of $5. She is ready to break the records previously held by the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at the age of 23. Yes, she is nearly a billionaire.

Forbes reported that Kylie, who will turn 21 in August, launched her Kylie Cosmetics two years ago and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since.

But that's not even all of her earnings.

"What her half-sister Kim Kardashian West did for booty, Jenner has done for full lips", Natalie Robehmed wrote for Forbes. "It is not shade to point out that Kylie Jenner isn't self-made", Gay tweeted.

The magazine valued her company at almost $800 million and with her reality shows and product endorsements pegged her net worth conservatively at $900 million.
