Semi-gloss and glossy sheens: Unlike lower-gloss sheens, semi-gloss and glossy paint sheens reflect light, providing a bright, shiny look.

Because the surface is slicker, it’s more resistant to moisture and easier to go over with a damp cloth or special sprays designed for minor household disasters.
