Just two questions..
How long do they last before you need a touch up and can you put mascara on them?

I wrote a ton about these in the mho opinion here:
New fill is about every 3-4 weeks in warmer weather, every 4-6 weeks in cooler weather.
I pay around $50 for a fill. I COULD negotiate that price downward, but, I don't bother, because my lash girl needs the extra money way more than I do. (:
I'm in Los Angeles, so, if you're in a second-tier city, you'll almost certainly pay less than that.
As far as mascara -- I still have mah trusty tube of Better Than Sex... lol. (Although I just got a tube of UD Perversion from influenster, and I like it... HMMM)
You CAN'T use waterproof mascara (it will clump, and anything that gets it off might weaken or dissolve the glue that holds the extensions on).
Also, you CAN'T use "tubing" mascara (like Too Faced's Lash Injection).
The 2 brands I named above are fine -- as are most other mascaras that aren't waterproof or "tubing".
You won't need a TON of mascara, though... obviously. Light hand, just applied to the very tips of the lashes, is more than enough.
A couple of other girls here are saying they feel like they'll come off... huh? Maybe they're confusing with the false eyelashes you buy at the drugstore and just wear for a night out?
GOOD eyelash extensions don't feel like they're gna come off... not at all! Not if they're done right, anyway. You forget they're even there.
Taking off makeup is pretty much the same, too. You just have to use a water-based MU remover (not oil-based -- because, again, that could weaken or dissolve the glue).0
