Some will have a glossy wet look which often darkens the color of you pavers (which you may or may not desire). Some paver sealers have a matte finish while others are completely invisible. The sealer creates a durable barrier against liquid absorption on the paver itself (as opposed to the joint stabilizing sealer which hardens the joint sand).
