Product:
The formula is what I call super matte but not drying. I can slightly tug on the lips but it doesn't feel drying to me and feel slightly cushioned on the lips as well. The finish does dry down to more of a matte finish through the day but for the first hour or so it has a very subtle dewiness to the lips.

I did find the Noir Red was the most creamy in texture on the lips.

I find that using any lip brush is my preferred method of applying this just because you need that clean line with deep reds.

I previously did a review of C210 Cherry Red 1935 here >

Colour:
Noir Red 1930 is a deep merlot red with a matte finish.
Portrait Pink 1963 is a light baby pink with a matte finish.

Wear: Close to 6 hours of wear before slight fading occurs.

Packaging: 
Gold round bullet tube with the Bésame flowers in red and is a touch shorter but 1cm than most lipstick bullets on the market giving it that vintage size feel. The closure also has a nice and tight snap.

The bullet is also cut into a V shape are the tip for a better application or so they claim. ;)

This is the oldest packaging I have out of the 3 shades I own and I found this one was stiff to roll the tube up and down that I can't do it with one hand. It was soo stiff at first that even with rolling it down it would get stuck and the nick in the lipstick side is what happened when I put the cap on. T-T

Aka, don't put the cap back on until the bullet is completely screwed down because the snap closure is in the top of the cap and can and will dig into the lipstick bullet. Again I have not had this issue with the other two shades I own, so I hope it was just a packaging glitch.

Daylight and Flash swatches: Portrait Pink 1963, Cherry Red 1935, & Noir Red 1930.

Verdict
One of the nicest higher end lipstick products without bleeding into that $30CAN plus price point.
