Our Story

For at least 10 years, my skin had been a melting pot of cystic acne, dark scars, textured skin, enlarged pores and oil. I struggled so much with my skin that makeup would not help. It wasn't until I switched my skincare to K-Beauty and found an excellent doctor to help me treat my acne, that I finally started seeing my skin smooth out and acne completely go.

DIBA's first product, the QUEENDOM cushion foundation, was born. My desire to help women of color find an affordable foundation that matches perfectly their skin type and color, cover enough to feel like a second skin while nourishing the skin with ingredients that help with moisture, oil control and hyper pigmentation was the perfect combo. The QUEENDOM cushion foundation was launched as a hybrid makeup and skincare, with initially 9 shades and ingredients such as Vitamin E+C, Jojoba Oil and Quinoa Extracts.
