If Luster doesn't have enough weight for you then this completely unscientific test will not help, but...
Early last year I made a typical test print on a number of papers including Epson Luster, Epson Semigloss, Epson Exhibition Fiber, Harman FB AL, and Ilford GFS. I know these are not all in the same class or price range, but I just wanted to see what people like. The prints were made on an Epson 7900 with good profiles for all of the papers. Over a week or so several people saw these prints and each was asked to pick a first and second choice as to which one they like best. These people included some regular folks who aren't into photography or printing at all, a couple who dabble in photography, and a frame shop owner of 30 years.
1. Exhibition Fiber (100% chose this as their favorite)
2. Epson Semigloss (this came in second, closely followed by Luster)
When questioned further, those who didn't pick Luster essentially said the surface is "too sparkly", or the surface gets in the way of the image. No one picked Ilford GFS, which I happen to like and use quite a bit. Comments revolved around the paper being too warm or "too yellow". Comments about the Harman (previously said Ilford by mistake) mostly said it was "too shiny".
Epson Semigloss is quite sturdy and also resistant to fingerprints. If you ignore the finer points of the surfaces, it's overall sheen is similar to EEF, without all the tiny specular highlights of Luster. FWIW I've abandoned Luster when this sort of paper is needed.
