Satin is exactly as you say somewhere in between. It gives a protective coat to your minis without making them look like they are coated in plastic. Or as if they have not been sealed at all. I prefer satin Varnish as it helps give a slight sheen to the armor pieces and makes it look more realistic. it think @Blackadder uses satin on his tyranids as well. Here's an example of what my mini's look like with it on.



I use Createx (not sure of the top of my head I'll have to check when i get home) and it works great. It gives a little bit of a shine but not a gloss. I brush mine on without thinning instead of spraying it on. And i think it looks fantastic. Purity seal, while it looks good, if applied incorrectly does have the danger of "Frosting"



If this happens its a pain to remove. I have heard that olive oil is the best method to remove it. But if used properly it can also give a very good finish.
