Mustaev Lustrous Cream Base is a beautiful product – it feels more like skin care than make up but there is definite ‘strobe’ element to it with a dash of iridescence in the mix. I think we could say it’s the non-strober’s strobe cream – the effect is very, very light but just gives an element of luminosity to the complexion. High beam, it is not.
Under foundation, it gives a slight uplit effect and on bare skin it’s a beautiful sheen that makes the complexion look glowy. I think a lot of the effect is knocked out by layering a full foundation over the top, so a good halfway house is a skin tint, so you get the best of both worlds.
I’ve also tried mixing it into a foundation before applying and there’s definitely more of a lumious sheen but steers away from the ultra strobe creams that we’re seeing at the moment. Dare I say it, strobe for grown up skin. Mustaev is actually a Korean brand – I would love to see this in the UK, but as it is you have to order from the US. I have to give you a warning because when Mustaev sent me this, I ended up with a custom’s charge. So, it’s a question of find a friend who’s heading to the US! Mustaev Lustrous Cream Base is $33.
