We finally understand how Kylie Jenner spends her millions

There was a time long ago when Kylie Jenner was merely Kim Kardashian’s younger sister, known mostly for her scandalous introduction to the world of reality TV — by hopping up on a stripper pole and showcasing her movies in episode one of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Since then, however, the youngest of the KarJenner clan has successfully marketed herself to her millions (and we’re talking millions) of Instagram followers, creating her own thriving cosmetics brand in the process. So much so, in fact, that Forbes named her the “youngest self-made billionaire” in 2019 — a heated point of controversy amongst the public. The backlash caused the makeup mogul to speak out herself. “I can’t say I’ve done it by myself,” Jenner explained to The New York Times. “If they’re just talking finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money. But I have had a lot of help and a huge platform.” Whatever the case, Kylie Jenner is a billionaire, and the whole world knows it.
With even her sisters, who are only worth millions, teasing her about her newfound billionaire status (how relatable), we can’t help but wonder: What exactly does one do with all that money? We promise we’re not here to make you jealous, but here’s exactly how Kylie Jenner spends her millions.
Kylie Jenner’s impressive car collection

When you’re Kylie Jenner, you best believe you’ll be spending your hard-earned dollars on a car collection. In fact, why stop at just a couple whips when you can have your own entire fleet of cars, sometimes even matching in color? According to the Daily Mail, Jenner received her first taste of the luxurious at 15 years old with her first-ever vehicle: a $125,000 Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV. In case you’re wondering, it’s the same car that she would, years later, put in an orange wrap to match her $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador. Per MTV, the wrap job cost $10,000, and as Jenner wrote on her Instagram, it was “just for the summer.” Welp.
Obviously, the lip kit queen didn’t stop there. As People revealed, 2015 saw Jenner buying herself a beautiful $320,000 white Rolls Royce Ghost, while her friends joked, “You’re such a rapper now.” Maybe not a rapper, but totally a boss babe, as four years later she’d be spotted treating herself to a $460,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom (via Metro).
Of course, Jenner’s car collection doesn’t stop there, but a lot of her other high-speed toys were purchases gifted by way of family members, her boyfriend, and ex-beaus. When she isn’t buying luxury vehicles for herself, Jenner ensures her mom, Kris, is looked after, too. According to Teen Vogue, Kylie bought her momager a red Ferrari 488 for her 63rd birthday in 2018. Not too shabby.

After dominating the world of cosmetics, is Kylie Jenner turning to real estate? No, but she may as well be. It started when the starlet purchased her “starter” home in Calabasas, Calif. for $2.7 million at the age of 17. “She completely has her own style,” gushed momager Kris to E! News. “Kylie has her own vision on how she wants her home to look.” She certainly did, considering she had black-and-white wallpaper of skulls put in her bathroom. Per Variety, the youngest Jenner sold the pad in 2017, raking in $3.15 million.
Next up was her Hidden Hills home, which Jenner snagged for $6 million in 2016. According to E! News, this swanky spot boasted countless amenities, like a refrigerated wine cellar, home theatre, and solar heated pool and spa. That clearly wasn’t enough for the budding makeup mogul, as that same year, she decided to buy yet another mansion — right next door to her first one. A source told E! News that Jenner had planned on using it as a home office, which clearly didn’t happen as she sold it in 2017 to hockey pro John Schiavo.
As for the pads Jenner currently owns at the time of this writing? According to Trulia, the social media maven purchased her third Hidden Hills mansion in 2016 for a whopping $12 million, then snagged up a $13.5 million Beverly Hills mansion with beau Travis Scott in 2018.
A girl’s best friend(s)
If anyone follows Kylie Jenner on Snapchat or Instagram, they know she’s a huge fan of her furry critters. Her most well-known, Bambi and Norman, are greyhounds, which are known to cost $1,000 to $4,000, depending on their breeding. You’ve probably seen these two on her social media pages, or even their own, considering she made an account just for the pooches. According to People, the youngest Jenner didn’t stop there, either. She actually has another greyhound named Sophia, and an adorable Dachshund pup, Ernie.
Because Jenner is a mom now, her priorities have changed, too. While before she was buying puppies for herself, she’s now showering her baby girl, Stormi, instead. As dished by People, the makeup aficionado adopted Wesley, a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix, during her daughter’s first birthday in February 2019.
With so many dogs everywhere, do they all sleep in Jenner’s pad? Maybe, but don’t forget who we’re talking about. According to the Independent, the young billionaire actually built her pups a luxury dog mansion — complete with heating and air conditioning. As one Twitter user wrote (via the Independent), “Is your dog house up for rent? Looking for a place.” Don’t worry, we wish we were sent to the doghouse, too.
Kylie Jenner spends her millions on bling

Along with the rest of her sisters, Kylie Jenner is a fan of all things flashy. This translates into her jewelry, too, which she regularly piles on. In fact, just taking a peek at her Instagram sees the makeup mogul sporting various luxurious pieces of bling.
Some of her faves? Her Rolex Pearlmaster 34, which boasts 18-carat yellow gold and diamonds. If that isn’t enough to blind someone on its own, Jenner also ensures her fingers are practically emitting a Midas touch. Her fave rings are that of Shay Jewelry, and while they look dainty and light, the price tag sure is hefty — between $1,000 to $7,000 (or, in some cases, even more). Yikes! Combine that with Jenner’s Cartier Love rings on her other hand, and the girl is dripping in bling.
Last but certainly not least are the reality TV star’s Cartier Love bracelets, which are valued at $5,000 each. Naturally, Jenner doesn’t have just one, but a whopping six in total. According to the Daily Mail, Jenner wore one of these elegant bangles for four straight years — not because she loved it, but because she simply couldn’t take it off. While the concept of such a luxe shackle doesn’t seem like the worst outcome, the youngest of the KarJenner empire actually took her bracelet to Cartier itself to try and pry it open with a screwdriver. First world problems, huh?
The youngest KarJenner’s beauty regimen

If you’re one of the most followed Instagram accounts in the world, you have to look flawless at all times. It’s not too hard when you have an extensive (albeit pricey) beauty regimen, of course.
Let’s start with the nails. According to Seventeen, Kylie Jenner almost always has spotless, coffin-shaped nails, which she sometimes gets done by LA-based manicurist, Britney Tokyo. Tokyo charges $125 for a two-hour session, along with a $50 house call fee. Considering Jenner regularly changes her nail look, this routine can definitely pile up.
As for her constantly-changing locks? It turns out, half the time, they’re wigs! The beauty queen’s go-to wig stylist is Tokyo Stylez, and he’s known for some of her most iconic looks. In an interview with Yahoo! Lifestyle, it was revealed that Stylez was the mastermind behind Jenner’s blue tresses in 2015, and even her rose-colored ‘do in 2016. Now that the youngest Jenner is older and a mom, Stylez notes that her look is simpler: “Kylie’s hair has changed so much from the first time [we worked together] until now. She’s such an adult now, she’s grown, and is sophisticated and classy.” What’s the cost of a Tokyo Stylez wig? According to Allure, the stylist charges $650 to $700 for “low range” wigs, with the most expensive going up to $3,000 or $4,000. Thanks, but we’ll stick to our natural manes for now.

Kylie Jenner loves her designer brands. When she’s not busy rocking $16,917 dresses, she’s ensuring her daughter, Stormi, gets a piece of the luxury pie, as well. As revealed by the Evening Standard in April 2019, Jenner’s baby girl had already racked up a luxe handbag collection valued at over $30,000! This includes some Chanel swag, Louis Vuitton, and her fave: “a miniature Hermes Kelly bag which was valued at over £16,200.”
It’s not all just arm candy, however, as Jenner ensures her glamorous little tot is always surrounded in excess. Per Teen Vogue, when Stormi was only two months old, her diva mom was already twinning with her, wearing a Fendi dress while her mini-me was in a Fendi-branded stroller. The cost for such a luxury? $12,500.
That’s not the only piece of premium baby gear, either. According to E! News, the television personality also had an $820 Gucci baby carrier, which she made sure to share on her Instagram page. According to Business Insider, however, she received a lot of hate from users criticizing her for picking a carrier that allegedly is “non-ergonomic.” Criticism or not, Jenner’s influence clearly still trumps all, as the carrier was later completely sold out.

Along with spoiling herself and Stormi, Kylie Jenner makes sure to look after her baby daddy, too. She can be spotted with her beau, Travis Scott, in his hometown of Houston, sitting courtside during NBA games and watching his fave team, the Houston Rockets.
While the duo ball out on an everyday basis, wait until you hear what the makeup entrepreneur does for special occasions. Per People, Jenner rented out all of the Six Flags Magic Mountain for Scott’s birthday in 2018, because, you know, why not have an entire amusement park to yourself? Sharing a video to her social media channels, the starlet gushed, “Rented out six flags for my baby’s birthday.” Inviting the likes of the rest of her A-list clan, such as Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West, the park was filled with celebs.
If you thought the Astroworld rapper’s birthday festivities stopped there, think again. As revealed by People, Jenner then took Scott to Turks and Caicos along with Stormi to continue on with the celebrations. The trio stayed at a luxury grand beach resort called the Amanyara, known for its lush accommodations such as private pools and white sand beaches, along with an 18,000-acre nature preserve. Thinking about staying there yourself? The suites range from $1,769 to $23,538 per night. Yikes.
Arm candy, especially Hermés
Kylie Jenner definitely has a flair for fashion, and is a particular fan of her purse collection. She has so many, in fact, that she actually has an entire room dedicated to them!
According to People, interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard actually helped the starlet design four “massive clothing and handbag closets.” As he dished to the mag, “There is a huge closet for her regular everyday clothes. Then she has a workout closet which is strictly for workout clothes. And then obviously there is a purse closet that is dedicated to her collection of incredible bags.” If that’s not shocking, Lawrence-Bullard actually had to convert an unused bedroom to make the purse closet since Jenner had so many! “There are at least 400 bags, mostly Hermés, lots of Birkin bags and then Louis Vuitton, lots of Chanel and some Dior and Fendi,” he explained. “Lots of them are collector’s items.”
Since fans were dying to know what her swagged out space looks like, Jenner gave a tour of the purse closet herself on her YouTube channel. Her fave row? An entire one dedicated to Hermés Birkin handbags. Pointing to a very special bag, the diva notes that if her “house [were] on fire,” she’d take one specific one. Which one is it, you ask? According to Vogue, it’s the most expensive Hermes bag available. Complete with white Himalayan croc skin, white gold, and diamonds, the bag is valued at $432,000.
She spends her millions flying Kylie class

For obvious reasons, Kylie Jenner doesn’t fly commercial. We’re sure renting out a plain ol’ private jet can get pretty pricey, but what about customizing it even further? In what may have been the most genius ploy, the makeup mogul decided to use one private jet as a marketing tool, too. According to Paper, Jenner customized her plane in baby pink, with the word “KYLIESKIN” very prominently displayed on the sides of the aircraft, for her exclusive 2019 summer girls trip.
If that wasn’t enough, according to the Mirror, the billionaire ensured the stewardesses all wore custom pink outfits, while her besties were all offered swag, including matching tracksuits, plush pink pillows, scrunchies, and eye masks — all with her brand name on them. Are we even surprised she has such a successful business?
It’s not the first time Jenner posed in front of a custom private jet, either. With the release of beau Travis Scott’s Netflix documentary, Look Mom I Can Fly, the duo posed in front of a private jet with the title of the documentary on it, smiling with their daughter, Stormi, in tow.
Kylie Jenner’s birthday superyacht

As we’ve clearly learned, Kylie Jenner is excellent at planning birthdays. Sparing no expense, she always goes all-out. Who can forget her own 21st celebratory bash? Per Harper’s Bazaar, the whole event was Barbie-themed, and the outfits were totally epic. From Kylie’s two bubblegum pink numbers to Kim’s barely-there satin dress, fans immediately wanted to cop the eye-catching styles. Best of all? They could. Yet again proving that the Kardashians have an infinite influence on, well, pretty much anything they do, copies of the dresses were available in less than a week through Fashion Nova.
2019 saw Kylie turning 22, and you best believe her shindig was even more extravagant than the year before. Inviting Travis Scott, Stormi, Kris Jenner, and her closest pals, Kylie rented out a $126 million superyacht in the Mediterranean. According to The Guardian, it featured a “swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, an experiential shower, a cinema, and a helicopter landing pad.” She then may or may not have parked it off the Amafli coast. Casual.
According to Vogue, by the time her posse made it to Positano, they stayed in the “one of the town’s most spectacular hotels, Le Sirenuse.” Rooms for one night at the prestigious locale? At least $1,500.
The time she built an amusement park
We all thought that Kylie Jenner renting out an amusement park for Travis Scott’s birthday was immensely generous and very cute, yet she somehow managed to top even that. For Stormi’s first birthday in 2019, Forbes‘ youngest self-made billionaire decided to create an amusement park.
If your mouth is agog, don’t worry, we’ll explain. According to W Magazine, Jenner didn’t think renting an amusement park for her baby girl was enough: She wanted to build one instead. Calling it StormiWorld, the mag notes, “There was a rainbow fairy room, a cloud room, and a bubble room. There were princesses, branded drinks and snacks, rainbow benches, and balloons. There were two rides, including a carousel, and a carousel on the cake.” Um, where was our invite?
It turns out, the event planner for the party was Mindy Weiss, a veteran at helping the KarJenners create their luxe soirees. In an interview Weiss gave with W Magazine, she revealed that the youngest Jenner is the most “hands-on” during the creative process and initial planning stages: “She is an artist in her head. She’s pretty easy to understand what she wants and is always inspired by her ideas.” While Kim Kardashian’s Alice in Wonderland-themed party for Chicago was certainly lavish, we have to say, building an entire theme park is definitely a touch more creative.
Kylie Jenner’s food delivery habits

When Kylie Jenner revealed what her lavish Hidden Hills mansion looks like to Architectural Digest in 2019, fans were floored at how jaw-droppingly dazzling her home looked. From her glam room to her bar lounge, everything is spacious, youthful, and visually stunning. As the Instagram influencer told the mag, “I wanted a fresh, fun vibe to match the way I was feeling. Color was essential. I love pink, and I wanted a lot of it!” Considering Jenner’s kitchen is as roomy and inviting as it is, you’d think the reality TV star would spend some time cooking in it. However, thanks to Postmates, think again.
The popular food delivery service released some pretty crazy information in January 2019. According to Postmates’ The Receipt series, it turns out that Jenner reportedly ordered from them a whopping 186 days in a year: “Having joined Postmates just over a year ago, Kylie has quickly joined our top percentile of customers by using the app, on average, every other day of the year, from 65 different merchants, and for holding the unofficial record for most Postmates orders in a 10-minute window (4).” As the blog hilariously went on, “In the past year, Kylie has spent more than $10,000 on Postmates. Her most expensive order consisted of Don Julio Añejo 1942 Tequila while her smallest order was a bottle of Smartwater and a single carrot.”
Well, at least Jenner’s probably using her totally adorable dining room, right?
