Scandal (226) is a deep purple with warm, pink undertones and lighter pink and violet pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff with an emollient consistency, which meant that the color was prone to sliding around and settling into lip lines. Of all the shades in the set, this one would have me most concerned about feathering for anyone prone to that (it did not feather or bleed on me, though). The color lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating. It did seem to apply a bit better, overall, compared to the permanent version I have.
