Kylie Jenner, 20, is on track to become the youngest 'self-made' billionaire in America thanks to her ever-growing beauty empire, according to Forbes magazine.

The Lip Kit mogul launched her cosmetics company in 2016 with $29 sets containing matching lipstick and lip liner, and has since sold more than $630 million worth of makeup.

Forbes said it valued her company at nearly $800 million and that Kylie owns 100 percent of it.

Adding millions from TV shows, endorsements and after-tax dividends from her company, Forbes said Kylie was "conservatively" worth $900 million.

Another year of growth would make her the youngest-self-made billionaire ever, male or female, the magazine said.

However, not everyone agreed with the 'self-made' description.

Even Dictionary.com waded in, tweeting: "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

"Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman."

Kylie first grabbed the spotlight as part of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality TV show with her mum Kris Jenner and her siblings.

Forbes estimated that Kim Kardashian, who has her own cosmetics, clothing and mobile games lines, is worth $350 million.

In an interview with Forbes, Kylie credited social media for helping drive her success.

"Social media is an amazing platform," she said. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers."

Momager Kris and her siblings all took to social media to congratulate the 20-year-old.

Just days earlier Kylie revealed she had some of her lip filler removed.

She was showing off her natural, deflated pout on Instagram, when one fan commented, "she looks like the old Kylie here idk why."

"I got rid of all my filler," replied.

And fans were loving her toned-down look, with one commenting, "I like your smaller pout it looks so natural and cute."

"Ohh my goddd kylie you look so beautiful the way you originally are now don’t change you are sooo gorgeous with the natural you yassss slay," gushed another.
