comment Is "layman" an offensive term?
If you're going to use it, I'd change it to layperson. Per this Wordnik entry, layman does have one definition of "a generally ignorant person." For whatever reason, layperson doesn't seem to have that definition.

comment Word which means - "decreases the beauty "
Lackluster is one word. And it is actually more about "lacking brightness, luster, or vitality; dull" wordnik.com/words/lackluster I don't think it necessarily implies that an object was ever beautiful or shiny.
