The business wasted no time to catch up with huge retail giants as it was once said that her lipsticks are sold at least once in every five seconds.
Shortly after that, it was reported that Kylie Cosmetics made $420 million in 18 months. It was also estimated that by 2022, the business could make an impressive $1 billion.

Apart from having lips that are fuller, she now has a pronounced hourglass shape which is often likened to that of her half-sister, Kim Kardashian.
Nonetheless, Kylie has maintained that she has never had plastic surgery. She once explained in an interview that the changes people point out in her face that make them believe she had a surgery to reconstruct it are the doings of a good hair and makeup. Based on what she said, fillers are responsible for the significant changes people notice.
For her hourglass figure, it has been rumored that she had a Brazilian butt lift, this is a cosmetic procedure that revolves around transferring fat to the backside in order to attain fuller buttocks. It is speculated that she did this with hip implants which accounts for the curvey shape that looks like Kim’s.
