Her Lip Kit was meant to be nothing more than a fun hobby, with 5,000 branded lipsticks created for sale.
But new mother, Kylie Jenner, now sits atop a globally successful beauty empire and has been declared the richest of all her siblings.
Her company is estimated to run at $386million and is projected to be worth $1billion by the year 2022.
Kylie was interviewed by her mother Kris, for LOVE, before she gave birth to her first child with Travis Scott on February 1 and she spoke of her passion for the brand.
She said: ‘I think truly, I put a lot of hard work into this. It’s not like I am doing this to make money. I don’t even think about that part.’
Kylie famously went into hiding throughout her pregnancy as she wanted to enjoy the experience in private.
And during the interview, she gave an insight into how she was feeling before taking the decision to step out of the public gaze.
When asked by Kris if she ever feels pressure, she said: ‘I know I feel pressure when I go out, even if it’s to go to the grocery store to do an errand.’
However, she said that she has a long way to go when it comes to building her empire.
She said: ‘Oh, I haven’t even dipped my toes in yet. There are so many products that I have yet to do. That will take years.’
Kylie is perhaps proof that you can have it all.
Her sister Kim raked in $10m in just four days, according to TMZ… and the entire advertising campaign was done on social media.
Her new fragrance line, Kimoji Hearts, sold out completely on Sunday.
The news comes at a particularly celebratory time for Kylie, who welcomed the birth of her first child, a daughter, with her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott.
‘Kylie’s first few days of motherhood have been the happiest of her life,’ an insider told E! News on Monday, after the reality star welcomed an baby girl weighing 8 lbs., 9 oz. on Thursday at 4:43 p.m. with her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott.
Kylie ‘feels like being a mom is her true calling and there’s nothing that’s ever felt so right,’ the source told the outlet, adding that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians personality has been ‘elated and overjoyed’ as she adapts to life as a mom.
‘The feeling she has is unlike anything she’s experienced before … bringing the baby home has been the greatest joy and most sacred experience,’ the source said. ‘Kylie feels like everything is coming very naturally to her and that being a mom is what she’s meant to do. She’s loving every minute and cherishing these first few days.’
Kylie’s anticipation had built to a crescendo over the past nine months, the source explained.
‘Kylie felt so ready to meet the baby and had been counting down the weeks for what felt like forever, she can’t believe she’s finally here and in her arms and this journey is beginning,’ the source said.
The youngest daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner was ‘very relieved’ after publicly revealing the news on Sunday – via an Instagram post and an extensive YouTube video – after keeping a low profile throughout the pregnancy, which the insider said took something of a toll on her.
‘It’s been a lot of work to keep something under wraps that she’s been so excited about,’ the source said. ‘The fact that the news is out feels like a weight off her back.’
Kylie’s childbirth went smoothly, as the source said there was ‘a very peaceful and calm’ mood at the hospital, and that her nerves were calmed by the presence of Scott, his family, and of course, the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
The source said Kylie ‘loved that Travis and her family were with her every step of the way,’ noting that ‘the family is closer than ever and just so thrilled to be growing at such a rapid pace.’
Kylie’s ‘Momager’ Kris Jenner has provided ‘constant support’ throughout the process, according to the insider. A separate source told the outlet that that the magic of motherhood impacted Kylie in a big way when her due date arrived.
‘She is so in love and feels like this is what she was put on this earth for,’ the source said. ‘Kylie was ready for the baby to arrive, but says nothing can prepare you for the moment of the actual arrival.’
