What difference does the ‘sheen’ make?

As a general rule, the glossier the paint, the more durable it is.  However, shinier paint does reduce the purity of the color radiating off the walls.  Also, sheen can affect the paint’s ability to ‘hide’ the color underneath.  Flatter paints have courser pigments and cover better than glossier sheens.
