“I met Desiree Reid in 1994 when one of our investors introduced me to her. Her product development eye is legendary. We’re not talking about a quality that (just) comes from training. It’s about caring for multicultural women and their place in the visionary beauty game. I am forever grateful that our paths crossed, that our coffee meeting blossomed into a beautiful relationship…what we lovingly call here, ‘The IMAN difference’.”

— Iman / Founder, IMAN Cosmetics

“Having the opportunity to work with Desiree on realizing my dream for Jay Manuel Beauty was essential to its success.  Her understanding of the beauty landscape and ability to focus my passions brought the Filter Finish Collection™ to light, disrupting and starting a revolution in the complexion industry.”

— Jay Manuel / Founder, Jay Manuel Beauty
