Hi natives or painting experts!

Which is more commonly used, please?
Saturated / unsaturated colors or pure / dull colors?

I googled, but rather have your opinion...I trust you more than google!;)

Tks

    For colors on a computer screen: high saturation colors/low saturation colors (definitely not unsaturated--that word makes me think of fats, not colors.)

    For artists' paints: high pigment concentration/low pigment concentration

    For general use: rich/deep/bright/intense colors and pale/weak/soft/muted colors.
