Slate floors--should I have gone with a glossy sealer?

We have montauk blue slate floors in all the wet areas. I chose a matte sealer from Lowes made by Aquamix. I think that was the name. They have a whole line of floor stuff with the word Aqua in it.

Anyhow, the floors always seem to look dusty and dirty. We don't have grass planted yet, so there is a lot of dirt that everyone is tracking in despite my continuous sweeping. They have been mopped several times as well. Still though, I'm wondering if I should have chose a glossy sealer. I wanted the look of matte, but maybe glossy would have looked cleaner??

Is there anyone out there with matte sealed slate?
