washed out colors

What's the difference between washed out colors and pastel colors? Isn't the same thing?
Thanks for your help

washed out colors:
you could say pastel colors aren't "pure," colors, like a "pure" blue etc, whereas washed out colors are above pastel (so a pastel blue + white) or that's how I use the terms.

Pastel is achieved through set design / color timing (chemical) / color grading (digital) or by using stocks like the old Fuji 400 IIRC. It is not achieved by overexposing. Or at least its not advisable to achieve it this way.

I'm still a bit confused because I thought washed out colors are colors that are not bright/saturated. And I thought pastel colors are soft colors. So it's not so clear to me

In the link below, is this what you call washed out? or is this saturated colors?

What about the light shining on the singers when they're in the car? Isn't that quite saturated?
