Kylie Jenner is well on her way to becoming a billionaire.

Kris Jenner told WWD that her daughter’s business Kylie Cosmetics, which includes her coveted Lip Kits, has made $420 million in retail sales since its official launch 18 months ago. The company is projected to make $386 million in 2017—a 25 percent increase, the outlet reported Wednesday.
