It’s a gray answer–sometimes. I think you can find really great products at both ends of the price spectrum. It might be easier for some types of products to find an average or better quality item at a higher price point — like a really pigmented eyeshadow at mid-end (or higher) than at the budget end. I still notice a smoother, more refined texture to a lot of powders, though the difference has lessened over the last five years.
Smith Cosmetics 253 is my new favorite eyeshadow brush! I love the triangular shape and tapered bristles.
