Haux was a shade I've been wanting to pick up for a while, and I finally caved and bought it, knowing I need more matte/satin eyeshadows to balance out my massive collection of shimmery colors. And I'm so glad I finally got it.

These kind of rosey brown shades are right up my alley, and they're my weakness in all different kinds makeup. Lipstick, blush, eyeshadow, whatever, and this sort of color is the first I gravitate towards. I'd describe it as a slightly cool-toned plummy pink brown, that does turn a touch warmer on my light skin with warm undertones. But no matter what your skintone is, I think this is an amazing transition or all-over lid shade. It would also create such a sexy smokey eye if blended out over a smudged-out black eyeliner. It's surprisingly creamy and pigmented, and is truly a "workhorse" color as I've heard it described before. Some other MAC eyeshadows I think it'll look amazing with are the cult classic Satin Taupe, and also Club, Sable, or Girlie.

Anyways, if you've been debating this color, you should definitely get it. I was pleasantly surprised by how many good reviews it has, and that was the final factor that enticed me to drop by my MAC store and grab it. Haux is truly a really lovely and versatile eyeshadow.

Perfect nude for nw45 and darker. If Mac ever stop selling this eyeshadow ill never buy another Mac product again. You'll lose a loyal customer.

While this may not be the most exciting color, it has proven to be a staple for me. It's a medium plummy/rosy brown. It somehow gives life to an eye look when used as a transition color or in the crease. I love it as a transition color when doing a plummy look, grey look, or smokey eye. The rosy hue adds a nice flush of color without looking bruised or sick. It's very similar to Quarry, but Quarry was slightly more purple/grey and this was slightly more rosy/brown. Again, the differences are very subtle. I thought the pigmentation was better as well as the satin finish (vs. matte of Quarry). Also, when I used Quarry on one eye and Haux on the other to compare, Haux was somehow more flattering (made me look awake and energized while the grey in Quarry made me look tired).

This is an unassuming color. I bought it after I realized the ever popular Satin Taupe made me look bruised, too frosty, too silver. This is the most lovely matte plummy brown. On my brown eyes and with my C4/5 skin, it looks lovely. I tried it with Samoa Silk and I know it would look great with Stars n Rockets, or Woodwinked. In fact, I think it's the perfect neutral for my coloring and with any shadow, even blues and greens. Nearly as good as Soft Brown. I don't know why it doesn't get more press.

This is a warm, plummy, with a slight leaning undertone of brownish senses. Does that make any sense at all? I don't notice it until I actually apply it onto my eyelids. It isn't the exact carbon copy of the shade in pan.

It's understandable how this could be a shade that people stray from. Using it alone gives you the "sickly, hollowed out, zombie, 'hi I'm Dane Dehaan'" look. Not many people want to look like a zombie, I suppose.

But used in conjunction with other shades (especially warm browns/oranges) such as blending it out with Soft Brown or Wedge or Rule, you end up with a beautifully dynamic look that is purely matte.

Adding it with other colors, such as metallic shades [Anything really, bronze, star violet, coppering] also works, and I've been enjoying encorporating Haux into my nearly everyday routine.

This is my new favorite eyeshadow. I added it to an online order on a whim. I have a lot of MAC shadows that I love, but this one if perfect for me. It applies smoothly, works well on the lid and in the crease, and makes my blue-green (primarily green) eyes sparkle. I've been wearing it everyday for a week. This actually could be an eye shadow that I will run out of someday.

as for packaging, I bought this in the pan form

I really like this shade. Very unique rosy brown, a bit brick, colored. No drugstore dupe. Brings out eye color on my blue green eyes. I use in crease with mac expensive pink or a taupe. Also nice with club. I like the color as easy neutral with brown liner. I find this shade flattering. I could see how it could make eyes look tired or bloodshot/allergy if too much is used with no other shadow color to make it look Done. Great neutral, better used with a liner or at least a highlight color rather than alone, though it does bring out light eye colors nicely. Just go heavy with mascara so there isn't too much red around eyes. I love in summer when I have a bit more color as all over lid with brown liner or a highlight and mascara. Really brings out my eye shade.

Haux is one of those colors from MAC that you don't hear many people talking about. In the pan, it looks bleh. It looks like a matte brown-rosey color with a pink undertone that would make one's eyes look tired and red. That is true, if this color is used incorrectly. However, when used for the right purposes this eyeshadow looks BEAUTIFUL. I use this color solely as a transition/crease shadow. It adds a subtle warmth to the eyes that soften any look. It can be worn used in both cool-toned or warm-toned looks. Definitely a MAC neutral that should not be overlooked!

I'm in search of the perfect crease color and have vey dark eyes so the MA offered this as a suggestion and I took her word for it. This color is very different and I thought it would be a dupe to UD color tease but this color is very different when swatched. Anyways, as nice as it all looks when swatched, when I put it on my crease or any other part of my eye it looks like someone hit me in the face. It is the most unflattering eyeshadow on me =( For reference I am NC 30. I guess I can only somehow work this as a transition color but other then that I would not repurchase ..Boo
