Let's start with the drugstore end. A majority of girls and women who wear makeup will stick to the drugstore for their main source of makeup because it's cheep, convenient, and diverse. It is completely fine to stick to drugstore makeup your entire life. However, because of my love for makeup, I have extended my spectrum to the high end side within the last year.
When you buy a new eye shadow or lip gloss from the drugstore, you will use it. That's it. However, when you buy a new eye shadow or lip gloss from Sephora or Mac, it becomes a prized piece of your collection. You admire the beautifully detailed packaging so much that you want to be able to display it on your vanity. The way the product glides on like a dream every time you use it makes it worth every penny.
Don't get me wrong, I will always have some drugstore products that I swear are as amazing as high end ones. For example, I cant' see myself ever getting a mascara anywhere other than the drugstore. However, I have come to understand the benefits of spending a little extra on some really amazing products. It's your choice, and this is my philosophy.
