In an interview with InStyle UK (opens in new tab), thriving-on-tough-love teen Kylie Jenner reveals she's been footing her own bills since her momager severed the financial cord at 14. So that explains the "lip liner (opens in new tab)" budget. 

"My mum cut me off financially three years ago so I pay for everything," she told the mag (although we're 98.9 percent sure she didn't say "mum"). "My car, my gas and food as well as my clothes. There are so many outfits I bought in the past that I just think now are NOT cute—but there's not very much I can do about it!"

Oooooh. Did a certain rumored relationship prompt the separation? Is Kendall on her own too? But Kris brokers all her daughters' business deals anyway, so it's not like poor 17-year-old Kylie's really left to fend for herself, right? Whatever the case may be, she must be doing pretty well judging by her massive, home-theater-boasting house (opens in new tab).
