Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has people from all over the world talking. Her new makeup line has everything, from foundations to blushes. But one item in particular looks conspicuously smokable. Fenty’s blotting paper is supposed to remove shine and oil from your face and make you look awesome. The online community isn’t satisfied with this simple explanation.
Rihanna is a big supporter of marijuana, so the belief that she’s releasing her own brand of cannabis products a la Snoop makes a lot of sense. She’s made no comment over the duality of the blotting papers, but people have taken it upon themselves to see if they could find the hidden meaning within.
Rihanna released pink rolling papers.

Even beauty publications like Glamour decided to take a shot at rolling a joint with the blotting papers. Let’s analyze their research:
To start, the paper did not rip off in a clean line. That could entirely be on me—I’m not the most coordinated—but also maybe it’s because these are meant to be used only on your face. As far as the actual act of rolling these, that too was a mess. Licking the paper did not help it stick (and also was pretty gross).
The real test, though, came when I tried lighting it on fire. It burns extremely fast. If you’re using it for anything other than your face, you’d be disappointed and also possibly ignite your fingertips. The smell—a fragrant mix of chai tea and burning plastic—was not great, either. I do not recommend.”
Suffice it to say, it didn’t work. Maybe Rihanna will get the hint and make the product that the people really want. There’s always hope.
