Twenty-year-old Kylie Jenner is famous for quite a few things: Her role on 16 seasons (!) of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," her basically trademarked lips, her popularization of being "slim thicc," her baby Stormi, etc. But most recently, Kylie caught everyone's attention with her growing stack of cash.
She was featured on the cover of Forbes magazine as "the youngest self-made billionaire on Earth," which was met with a lot of criticism. You know, because her parents, Kris and Kaitlyn, have been rich and famous since before Kylie was even conceptualized. 
Whether or not you agree Kylie is "self-made," you've got to wonder: What does her billionaire bucket of cash look like? According to Business Insider, it looks like more money than most of us can even imagine.
Apparently, Kylie makes $45,550 in just over two hours. That's almost the exact median salary in the United States ($45,552, in case you were wondering). Yes, you heard me right. The makeup mogul makes the amount of money most of us make in a year in less time than it takes to watch a movie. At least with all those dang trailers. 
Kylie has made her fortune almost entirely on Kylie Cosmetics, her cosmetics line that's famous for its lip kits. Since a lip kit is $30, she sells around 1,518 every two hours to make that amount of money. That's pretty impressive, whether you like to "Keep Up With The Kardashians" or not. Kris has trained them well. 
If you want to see how long it would take you to make Kylie money, I Saw It First made an interesting (but kind of depressing) tool that shows how your salary stacks up against stars'. I don't know, everyone. Maybe it's time to ask for a raise
