I believe if you avoid oil based products and waterproof mascara they last around 3-4 weeks....I'm not really sure of any other ways to make them last longer, hopefully someone else on here has some more ideas!

    Umass, you are correct but why would even bother with mascara? Isn't that the point if the extensions? In the 4 months that I've been getting mine done I've never used mascara

    Absolutely!!  That's one of the main reasons I'd get them :)    Mascara, to me, is one of the most annoying parts of my beauty routine....thats why I have a feeling that if I get extensions i will be addicted and they will be my new habit  :)

    Hey, I started getting eyelash extensions about a month and half ago, it was for our wedding, but i am hooked!

    There is this great place in chicago-

    http://www.eyelashex...onschicago.net/

     

    It is 135$ for a full set and $65 for fill. They have amazing reviews and are really good. I would be skeptical of the places that are that cheap-$59 for a full set, since mink eyelashes anywhere are $300. This place is usually $300 as well, but they have deals going on at times.

     

    Also, I had my eyelashes done for the wedding and I loved it. I jumped into pools, layed in the sun, went underwater, and they stayed on for the entore trip and two weeks afterwords before I went to get them filled.

    they are very addicting!!! i haaated putting on mascara before, and one eye always looked better then the other, or i would put too much and it clumped. No more mascara for me!!!

      I believe that you cant get them wet within the first 24hrs after that you can swim, etc.  Also no need for mascara with the eyelash extensions.

        I concur, and after about 3 weeks you should get a refill no more than 4 weeks.

          Have you had your extensions done before? I'm afraid they will make my real lashes fall out.

          I live in Schaumburg and am getting them done at this place in Elk Grove. If you google "Chicago Eyelash Extensions" there are some downtown (not sure where you live) and one that even is mobile and will come to you!

           

          The one I'm going to in Elk Grove is $115 for a full set and they last 6-8 weeks. I know it's a splurge, but I decided I deserved it haha :) Of course my FI thinks they're absurd, but whatever.

            He won't think they're absurd once he's see's them; they're kind of sexy!  When I get a fresh set, I give my eyes about 2 days rest from removal of the old set.   My Fi's first question... When are you getting your lashes back on?
