The collection, as reported by Metro UK, comprises four new products: blotting papers (£5.50), a lip conditioner (£8), a brow setter (£7) and a primer (£12). And no, they don’t claim to contain any CBD.
The Bare With Me Hemp Blotting Papers are hemp-woven and infused with skin-soothing cannabis-seed oil. Their convenient size and packaging (think a pack of Rizla, a brand of rolling papers) make them ultra-portable and slightly reminiscent of Milk Makeup’s popular Roll+Blot papers.
The Bare With Me Hemp Lip Conditioner blends moisturizing hemp oil with rosehip, almond and jojoba oils to protect and moisturize lips and ensure smooth lipstick application, if that’s your thing. Hemp lip treatments have long been a staple beauty product, with products like the Body Shop’s Hemp Heavy-Duty Lip Balm coming to mind as long-standing cult classics.
The Bare With Me Cannabis Sativa Oil Brow Setter is a clear liquid that conditions and shapes brow hairs, alone or before eyebrow makeup.
The jewel in the collection’s crown is the Bare With Me Hemp Radiant Primer, which has a slight, light-diffusing shimmer so it wears well on its own or under three inches of contouring – you decide! This product is most directly comparable to Milk’s Hydro Grip Primer, in packaging and ingredients, but you can also just massage a few drops of pure hemp seed oil into your skin to keep it hydrated and smooth.
Looking forward to rubbing fancy weed makeup all over your face? Don’t get too excited. Although the collection drops in August, so far Los Angeles-based NYX has only announced its UK release.
