Kylie Jenner is reflecting on the birth of her billion dollar makeup business.
On Friday, the beauty mogul released the first episode of “Inside Kylie Cosmetics” on YouTube.
The series is directed and executive produced by Michael D. Ratner and his OBB Pictures, the same team that was behind YouTube’s Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato’s docuseries.
The three-part series coincides with the beauty company’s relaunch, which will see it feature “clean and vegan products.”

“I’m going to start my interview and then when I’m done, we’re going to go home, ‘k?” she says to her 3-year-old.
“Later!” giggles the tot, while running away.
The official Kylie Cosmetics relaunch is set to take place on July 15.
Looking back on how the business came to be, Kylie remembered, “I was 17 when I launched Kylie Cosmetics. It feels weird that this is my life now, looking back at it though, makeup has just been a part of my DNA.”
She continued, “When I was younger I had an insecurity with my lips…. I have temporary lip fillers and it was an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do.”
Mom Kris Jenner then recalled how her youngest daughter was “bullied” after “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” began airing.
“Being on the internet, people will pinpoint every single thing about you and make you realized things you would never realize in a million years,” said Kylie.
“Makeup has always been a great way of self-expression for me. I just knew in my soul that this was what I was supposed to do.”
Kylie used her own savings to create her signature lip kits, which included a matching lip liner and lipstick.
“I planned a launch event to sell all these lip kids I got. At the time I thought it was sooo many lip kits. It was 15,000 units in total.”
All 15K kits sold out in just minutes of launching, and the company that began as Lip Kit By Kylie later changed to Kylie Cosmetics.
