Kendall and Kylie Jenner have used their name-making capabilities to shill hair extension lines, and beauty brands small and large. More recently, the duo has applied their tactics to foreign, non-legacy magazine covers, a few whose names you probably hadn't heard of until a Jenner Instagrammed it.
