I don't believe you can selectively color parts of the legend text,
but you could identify the colors with -text()-
For example:
clear
set obs 25
set seed 12345
gen x1 = uniform()
gen x2 = uniform()
gen x3 = uniform()
gen y = uniform()
format _all %9.3g
scatter x1 x2 x3 y, ms(none ..) mlabsize(*1.2 ..) mlabcolor(red blue
black) ///
mlabel(x1 x2 x3) mlabpos(0 ..) legend(off) ///
xscale(range(0 1.05)) ///
yscale(range(0 1.05)) ///
text(1.05 1 "Label for X1", color(red)) ///
text(1 1 "Label for X2" ,color(blue)) ///
text(.95 1 "Label for X3", color(black))
