In smoke-and-you-missed-it news, Milk Makeup has a face-blotting and rolling paper combo pack as part of its 85-piece line, which launched earlier this year.
Our response? “Person Raising Both Hands in Celebration” emoji. Made of 100 percent unbleached hemp fibers, Milk Makeup’s Roll + Blot papers are a must-have for any avid marijuana smoker’s makeup bag.

And we also totally vibe with their vibe. Fast Company reports:
Milk Makeup’s hook is a character: the Milk Girl. Company cofounder Mazdack Rassi says this “girl” is the kind of person who takes five minutes to put on her makeup in the back seat of a cab as she’s being ferried between chic events. She’s too cool to want a full makeup mask. Everything is meant to be practical: Blotting papers double as rolling papers; all products are designed to be rolled on or applied with a finger. No brushes or powder puffs necessary.
Apparently using blotting papers before they officially existed as dual-purpose rolling papers is an age-old trick of crafty stoners according to Reddit and even Google. Related searches for “Milk Makeup Blotting Papers” include “Can you use oil blotting papers to roll a joint” and “Can you smoke blotting paper?” Let’s just hope no one was smoking those plastic-y, blue Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing sheets back in the day.
Now, you can do double duty conscientiously — all Milk Makeup products are cruelty-free — to soak up excess oil on your face or roll a joint. Just not with the same piece of paper (ick) out of the 100-sheet pack. Plus, you’ll be the talk of powder rooms everywhere.
Props to Allure, which first reported on this on 4/20, natch.
