Matte color is a color that is dull or flat indicating a lack of shine and luster. This term mostly applies to paints, art supplies and consumer products to indicate a lack of a shiny finish. The term matte originates with photo processing where it traditionally indicates a low to no gloss finish. As a color term, matte indicates washed out colors that are both shaded with black and tinted with white to give them a greyish tone. The following are common examples of matte colors.
