The Jenner sisters were booed while introducing brother-in-law Kanye West’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards in May 2015. In May 2015, an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in which Jenner admitted to getting a lip augmentation. Her enhanced lips from lip fillers created speculation and gained her publicity. Prior to the episode’s debut, Jenner stated that she merely used lip liner and over lined her lips. As a result, the practice of suctioning one’s lips into a small glass in order to induce greater blood flow to swell the lips was called the “Kylie Jenner Challenge” (though there was no indication that Jenner herself employed this method). Jenner responded to this by stating, “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look.” In June 2015, the Jenner sisters launched their clothing line Kendall + Kylie with British fashion retailer Topshop. This Topshop clothing line also featured swimsuits. In August 2015, Jenner announced that she would be launching her first lipstick line as a part of her self-titled lip kit.

Jenner released a three minute-long promotional video for a series of lip glosses in March 2016, directed by Colin Tilley and starring fellow models Karin Jinsui, Mara Teigen, and Jasmine Sanders. The song in the video was revealed to be “Three Strikes” by Terror Jr, a band created on the same day as the release of the video; however, the lead singer, whose true identity remains unknown and who goes by the alias “Lisa”, was heavily speculated to be Jenner herself. However, Jenner subsequently denied any involvement with the band. In May 2016, she made her musical debut rapping on producer Burberry Perry’s song “Beautiful Day”, with Lil Yachty, model Jordyn Woods, and Justine Skye. A man named Marvin Magallanes made multiple attempts to crash his car through the gates of the gated community where Jenner was living in June 2016. Magallanes subsequently confessed to the murder of a homeless man in Anaheim in May 2017. In fall of 2016, Jenner was announced to be the new face of PUMA along with Rae Sremmurd. In April 2017, she made a surprise appearance at the Rio Americano High School prom in Sacramento alongside junior Albert Ochoa after hearing that his date had turned him down.
In June 2017, Kylie announced two new cosmetics sets in collaboration with her sister Khloe Kardashian and the Kylie Cosmetics KoKo collection. Later that month, Jenner was accused of stealing designs for a series of camouflage items released on her online store from independent design label PluggedNYC, whose creative director supported the claims. Later that June, Jenner was placed at number 59 on the Forbes Celebrity 100, which calculates the 100 highest-paid celebrities of the previous 12 months, after earning approximately US$41,000,000, making her the youngest person on the list at 19 years old. Jenner collaborated with Melbourne-based sunglasses brand Quay Australia to release a line of sunglasses, Quay x Kylie.
On June 28, 2017, the Jenner sisters announced that they would be releasing a line of “vintage” t-shirts, featuring the likenesses of various rock and rap artists including The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Metallica, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Ozzy Osbourne, Led Zeppelin. with pictures of the Jenner sisters superimposed over them, for their Kendall + Kylie line of clothing. The line was called “Rock vs. Rap”. However, the day after, the shirts were taken down after receiving swift backlash, including from relatives and colleagues of the figures depicted on the shirts themselves. Sharon Osbourne, wife of Ozzy Osbourne, tweeted that the two “had not earned the right to put their faces over musical icons”, and that they should “stick to what they know…lip gloss”. The manager of The Doors, Jim Jampol, called the two “attention-seeking missiles”, calling the shirts “ironic, at least, and criminal, at worst” and “spitting in the face and on top of art and message and soul and legacy”. Voletta Wallace, mother of The Notorious B.I.G, posted a picture on Instagram with a large red X over a t-shirt depicting Kendall’s face over a picture of Biggie, writing that “This product has no affiliation to the Notorious B.I.G. estate. The estate was never contacted about using the likeness of Biggie.” Wallace went on to describe the shirts as “disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst”. The sisters tweeted out an apology.
She will star in an upcoming reality show revolving around her life, Life of Kylie, beginning in August 2017.
Kylie Jenner v. Kylie Minogue
In 2014, Jenner filed a U.S. trademark application for the term “Kylie”, seeking protection for the term in connection with advertising services. KDB, an Australian-based business representing Kylie Minogue, filed a notice of opposition to Jenner’s application in February 2016. In court documents obtained by the New York Post’s Page Six, KDB claimed approval of Jenner’s application will confuse audiences and dilute Minogue’s brand. The company also pointed out the fact that the Australian pop star currently owns trademark registrations for the term “Kylie” across entertainment services and music recordings: Minogue owns trademarks for “Kylie Minogue Darling,” “Lucky – the Kylie Minogue musical” and “Kylie Minogue,” and has owned Kylie.com since 1996. The documents slammed Jenner, claiming her “photographic exhibitionism” on social media and “controversial posts have drawn criticism from, e.g., the Disability Rights and African-American communities.”
KDB also referred to Jenner as a “secondary reality television personality” who appears on Keeping Up with the Kardashians as a “supporting character” to the Kardashians: Kim, Khloé and Kourtney.
In February 2017, Minogue won the legal battle against Jenner for name trademark.
Rock vs. Rap t-shirts
The Doors issued a cease-and-desist letter to the Jenner sisters, writing that the band never authorized the sisters’ use of the band’s images or made any contact with the two prior to the release of the shirts, as did Voletta Wallace.
