Does anyone think/know there are significant differences between specific drugstore makeup and moisturizer vs dept store stuff?

I especially need input on foundation - I've been happy w/ Eliz Arden but had a free trial of Neutrogena and thought that was pretty good altho it was only the one time and I don't know if it's good for long term

I read that moisturizers do not make a difference - although I have tried many, and the best for me was Shiseido's Bio Performance ($$$$), but since i am economizing now I am using Camellia oil (after reading post on it here), and Neutrogena copper lotion and Oil of Olay regenerist lotion (smells so nice!)

For my part, I thought Shiseido's mascara and Blinks mascara (makes rubber tubes) was the best, I could not tolerate any other kind of mascara (I'm super sensitive, and these do not flake hardly at all)
I haven't noticed too much difference between drugstore brands like Neutrogena and Avon and the upscale stuff (I actually really dislike Lancome lipstick)
eyeshadow supposedly is better for dept store brands b/c more milled and finer quality of powder (I use Eliz Arden and Clinique and have been satisfied w/ them)

I'd rather not waste money if I can find cheaper and just as good substitutes at the drugstore (or buy 3-4 lipsticks instead of 1 for the same amount)
