Scandal is described as a “bright metallic raspberry shimmer.” It’s a rich, vibrant pinky-red with metallic ruby shimmer and a glossy finish. This color knocked my socks off from the MOMENT I applied it to my lips. It is utterly spectacular in the coverage, consistency, and wear–it glides on with rich, even color that lasts five hours, plus a residual stain for another hour and a half or so. Milani Photo Flash is similar, not as red. Guerlain Pour Troubler is more muted. See comparison swatches.
