Carpro perl is one of many that will tick that box.

Gtechniq C4 or Concept Vista for me Carpro Dlux is ok but C4 correctly applied, over a scrupulously clean surface can be invisible.
Vista is cheaper but once mastered can give excellent results.
Gyeon Trim also gets some praise as does Solution Finish.
Perl is good but can be a little short lived though it does look right.
In general over application of C4 and the others, is, I find, to be avoided. I imagine I have only 30 drops to complete the job so every drop has to cover as much area as possible. Then very lightly finish, if necessary, with a clean microfiber until the finish is even.
Keep dry for as long as practically possible after application.
Some bits of old faded trim to practice on and allow to cure can be useful to get your eye in. With paint it is usually possible to repolish but trim dressings can be difficult to remove so it is worth taking some time to be confident about applying product you choose.

I’d agree totally, a very nice product like the rest of the range.

Solution Finish followed by CarPro DLux looks great.

I've recently used Auto Allure's trim dressing and this seems to be holding up well - no residue from it.

Also used AG (new version) trim dressing and this works well and no residue...
