Not many young women can be 'insecure' about their lips and start a cosmetics brand to fix the problem. The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' women are problem-solvers, making action into their own hands and not waiting for some Prince Charming to come along with a magic wand to make Kylie Jenner, 20, suddenly confident about her lips. With no scientific data, lip abundance is associated with fertility; and we all know that the Kardashian women are not only destiny-driven business moguls but direct descendants of the Venus of Willendorf.

“It came from an insecurity and I turned it into something. I was insecure about my lips, and lipstick is what helped me feel confident,” Jenner explained to her beauty mogul sister.
“It’s the most authentic thing I’ve done in my career, and it really relates to me, and I feel like people can tell that I’m super passionate about it,” Jenner said about her business endeavor. “I feel like people could see that it’s authentic to me, and it was organic, and it just worked!”
People love to mock the Kardashian women, but Forbes estimated Kylie's net worth at $41m in December 2017, while WWD estimated her 2017 lip-love and more sales from Kylie Cosmetics at $330m.
Earlier this year, Kylie gave birth to her first child, Stormi, with long-term boyfriend and rapper, Travis Scott. The rest of Kylie's interview with sister Kim is about the Kardashian women and their babies.
