Basement Ceiling: to Gloss or not to Gloss

I am in the drafting process with my unfinished basement. Due to a duct about 2.5 feet from the stairs, the ceiling will vary under the duct at 7 foot 2 inches and where there is no duct at almost 8 feet. But those are fairly low by comparison to other areas of the home. I have seen people talk about using a glossy or more shiny paint on the ceiling so it appears taller. Is this true? I've never seen it in real life and online I can't find images that look any different than normal. So I wanted to ask.
Thank you!
