Color vs. Appearance

With the number of color measurement instruments on the market, how do you choose the most appropriate one? It helps to understand the difference between measuring color and measuring appearance.

When white light strikes a surface, two different light interactions occur. Gloss or shininess is a geometric attribute related to the scattering of light off the first surface of the material.
