Matte or Glossy tiles for bathtub surround?

Just wondering whether most of you use a glossy or matte tile when tiling walls around a bathtub. I had initially planned to use a glossy, large format tile that matches the matte tile I selected for the floor. But when I got the samples home, the glossy tile does not quite match the matte tile. The color is a little off .

I’m wondering if this is because of the glossy surface and the way it reflects light.

Thanks for your thoughts!
