The first important thing to note is that this will not be a collaboration between Alicia Keys and e.l.f. instead the new launch will see the multi-Grammy Award winning artist release her own brand under the e.l.f.  Beauty portfolio. The cosmetics company announced the news on Wednesday, leaving a time-frame when the line will be dropped, which is in 2021.
