    I didn't think it was disastrous, it could be better, but we already had worse covers. After Jennifer Lopez amazing cover I knew that no one would be able to maintain the level!

    she looks so good for her age with zero make up on and she was really pushing that story longtime, i didn't know why they took such bad picture with tons of photoshop and make up.

    I'm bored with this no makeup gig of hers. First few years, aww yes queen fight for natural beauty. As it lasted... I'm bored. Girl, you're a celebrity.

    Doesn't look like Alicia Keys does it? There is something very weird about the cover.

    And after such flawless covers with Pat McGrath and Jennifer Lopez - Allure was doing so well. A shame the standard hasn't been kept up for April. I have never been a one for Alicia Keys, and not particularly fond of this cover photograph either. The post-production number on her eyes is shocking!

    This issue is about 90 pages long. Article-wise, this is not a bad issue – but Allure seems to be leaving beauty products behind in favour of a greater focus on interiors. There’s a section where the editors of Architectural Digest give their recommendations about the best fixtures and finishes for bathrooms, plus “fresh ideas on how to style your beauty space” and a look at one of Charlotte Tilbury’s rooms that seems to be a cross between a bathroom and a wardrobe – which makes you wonder whether the bath ever gets used on a regular basis, because nothing in that room is going to stay good in the humidity, from books to clothes to perfumes.

    There are no fashion/beauty editorials in this issue, Allure seems to have given up on them as well.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Conde Nast has decided that padding out their titles with interior design features is their safe bet, because people don't tend to get cancelled for the colour of their walls or towels, and there's a great appetite for seeing images of luxe living, it's universally aspirational.
