Default Citadel Paint Questions

I'm considering trying out some of the Citadel colors so I can more easily match some of the techniques I see on various tutorials. Anyways I've got just a few questions about them.

Are they flat or glossy? Personally I depise glossy paint since it's rather hard for me to work with, and a good coat of clear can achieve the same end.

How do they do in Airbrushes? I love my little Paasche double action to death, but it's rather finicky about what it sprays. I've got an Aztec single action that will digest just about anything you put into it, but it looks terrible.

they're nice and matte, so don't worry about a sheen

and as for airbrushes...well, they should do just fine, as the pigment in them is nice and fine

My friend did his land Raider with an airbrush. You should be fine there.
