Are the hourglass ambient lighting powders really worth it?

Think of them as nicer setting/finishing powders. They were originally advertised as like an all over highlighter, but they're much, much too subtle for that. I really love them, but they're certainly not magic. They're a holy grail for me, because they're incredibly finely milled before being pressed, so you don't ever really look powdery and they're nice for layering products. The ones that are more illuminating also have incredibly fine particles, so they never look sparkly, you just sort of glow. But it is subtle. That's what I like about them the most, I tend to go for more natural looks, and I like my skin to look just naturally perfect instead of like I have a ton of products on, so the subtlety is what I'm looking for. For others, it may be easy to feel like it's a lot of money for something which isn't as visible.

For alternatives, the Make Up Forever HD Setting Powder only comes in one shade, but is a very nice setting powder. There is also an NYX dupe of it, but it is definitely much lower quality. Still nice, but you can feel the price difference. Frynnaie makes some finishing powders that are quite nice. ELF has an illuminating palette which is supposed to be a decent dupe for the Ambient Lighting Powders, but I haven't tried it.
