As ET previously reported, Jenner covers the latest issue of Forbes, and in her accompanying interview with the magazine, she opens up about starting her massive beauty empire, Kylie Cosmetics, and her plans to one day pass the company down to her first child, baby girl Stormi, with boyfriend Travis Scott.
"I said, 'I'm ready to put up my own money. I don't want to do it with anyone else,'" she recalls, revealing she put up $250,000 of her own money to pay an outside company to create the first 15,000 lip kits. "Before I even refreshed the page, everything was sold out."
"Maybe one day [I'll] pass this on to Stormi," she adds. "If she's into it."
