“Inspired by the vibrant culture, sunset-hues, iridescent textures, tropical fruit, and the beach lifestyle of the Bahamas, the collection includes everything you need for glowing skin, glistening lips, and a laid-back, tropical paradise-inspired look,” read a press release shared with Elite Daily. With products ranging from body oil to an eyeshadow palette to lip gloss to a lifestyle kit, you’ll feel like you’re in paradise for every step of your beauty routine.
This entire drop has been in the works since e.l.f’s fourth annual Beautyscape competition in November 2019. In the super intense contest, 25 up-and-coming beauty influencers were brought to the Bahamas to get the chance to create a collection with e.l.f. and win $10,000. By channeling nostalgic, rosy images of past paradises, Alissa Holmes, Diana Curmei, Elicia Aragon, Jessa Green, and Valeria Loren won. Since then, they have been working hard creating the Retro Paradise collection. “We worked closely with the product development team, integrated marketing communications team, and everyone in between to bring our vision to fruition,” Green told the Zoe Report. “We were able to influence everything from the concept, the collection name, the shades, the components, the actual products, and more."
With all the time and thought dedicated to this collection, it’s hardly surprising that Retro Paradise has such a wide range of products that capture summer’s beauty. If you want to shop e.l.f.’s Retro Paradise, all the products are available on the brand’s website and in Target stores. And you can check out the whole collection below.
