It looks dry. The test swatch looks like it soaked "into" the wood, and the previous stain looks faded and has not formed a film. I wouldn't hesitate to apply a maintenance coat.

Sikkens (ProLuxe) bonds extremely well to itelf, so even if you apply (over-apply) it before it is completely worn from the surface no problem. However, I would be cautious switching to another product (having encountered some bad failures from others having done so). Because of the high resin content (the shininess that you are referring to), it is basically like a varnish, an other products don't always adhere to it well. It will be shiny, and become more so with routine maintenance.

I guess if you were going to switch, now would be the time, but any shiny spots from previous should be sanded.
