Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing ("10 hours'") with "immediate" moisture while "[blurring] lines and [smoothing] lips" that doesn't settle, crease, flake, or feel drying. Per the brand, one applies using the "hourglass-shaped applicator."

The texture has a more velvety, thicker feel that spreads well and feels plusher with more of a silicone-like glide (if you've tried a silicone-based primer, the feel of it on the lips was similar but creamier). The applicator worked well for applying and distributing product evenly, but it gathered more product than necessary for my lips in a single pull of product to the point where I felt like it over-applied product to the detriment of application.

The texture has a more velvety, thicker feel that spreads well and feels plusher with more of a silicone-like glide (if you've tried a silicone-based primer, the feel of it on the lips was similar but creamier). The applicator worked well for applying and distributing product evenly, but it gathered more product than necessary for my lips in a single pull of product to the point where I felt like it over-applied product to the detriment of application.

I had better luck applying product my upper lip (especially around the cupid's bow, as the applicator was better for getting this area) and then pressing my lips together and/or using a fingertip to diffuse and spread out the product to the rest of my lips. This ensured that there wasn't too much product on my lips; too much resulted in the product pilling a bit and being uneven, especially along the inner area of my month, prone to getting on teeth, and sometimes catching on lip texture/imperfections. For reference: all swatch photos are as-applied with the included applicator only.

They were pigmented with most shades being nearly opaque to opaque but a few that fell slightly below. For a more diffused look, you'd want to apply with fingertips or just to the center of the lips and then use a brush or fingertips to blow out the color. The colors went on fairly evenly, and I found most of the time where it did not, it was an issue with an over-application of product (despite just using one pull of product!) and the formula was more forgiving when applied with less product (but that still was plenty to cover my lips with near-full coverage!).

They mattify over time--as the color wore away--and are more transfer-resistant at that point, but the formula itself is a more flexible, though I could definitely feel it on, and has a more satin-like finish for the first couple of hours of wear. I'd recommend blotting gently on the back of your hand (less likely to get tissue bits on your lips that way) to soften and mattify faster, if desired.

The lighter shades didn't wear away as evenly and had more noticeable wear along the center of my lips, while the more mid-tone and deeper shades lasted longer and more evenly as they tended to stain a bit. The wear ranged from five to eight hours, but the formula wasn't providing any "immediate" moisture for me, and after wearing a lot of shades back-to-back, my lips were slightly dehydrated.

As soon as I saw this color I knew I had to have it - Escandalo is a really nice coral-orange that looks really bright and fresh. While the formula wore okay on me, the application is definitely a bit tricky. I found the formula overview on Temptalia gives a lot of useful information on the application process. I personally found the applicator shape strange to use and preferred applying with a fluffy Elf eyeshadow brush to get a softer, diffused look. If you're interested in this color, but want an easy application experience I would definitely look into the dupes for other options.
