Keyshia Ka’Oir, formerly known as Keyshia Dior, is a model, actress, and businesswoman of Jamaican and American descent. She is well-known for her cosmetics firm KA’OIR, of which she is the current CEO and owner. Since 2011, ‘KA’OIR Cosmetics Brand’ has been among the most successful brands. After changing her name from Keyshia Dior to Keyshia Ka’Oir and establishing an exclusive line of vividly colored lipsticks, she capitalized on her reputation and devoted fan base to establish a cosmetic empire. Its purpose was to unite women of different skin tones, and it quickly attracted the attention of celebrities such as Trina, Nicole Snooki Polizzi, and Teyana Taylor. In addition to her enormously successful commercial career, she designed the pink lipstick dubbed ‘Survivor.’ It is her way of giving back to the community, as the majority of the revenues go to Susan G. Komen Breast Care Foundation and to boost breast cancer awareness.
