The douchebags upstairs
You motherfuckers owe me. I thought my biggest headache would be my old bat of a neighbor next door. He had superior hearing and would complain at the drop of a hat when we were in the renovation phase. I didn’t know there was someone going to be much worse. Friends, meet the douchebags upstairs.

The Greatest Lash of All
I don’t know why Great Lash is not available here. Touted and (IMO) hyped as the best mascara ever, Maybelline’s Great Lash has had a cult following since forever.
