I was very sceptical of this eyeshadow, I don't live near a MAC, so I have to buy online. Most warm tones eyeshadows look horrible on me because I'm so fair and cool toned, and I thought this one would be the same because it was a redish brown. But I was wrong and this eyeshadow blew me away, I wear it in my crease and it looks beautiful on me! So don't be discouraged if your very cool toned, it could still work wonderfully for you.

Well this eyeshadow.. is a meeh.. for me. I did not hate it but i didn't love it either... It's a satin mauve-brown-warm color which I mostly use on my crease. I will not buy this again probably.

I've been looking at this shadow for a week and in the past I've avoided mauve brown shades. It's one of those shadows that looks interesting as a crease color (and mixed with other shades), but all over the lid it might look like a bruised eye. If you mix it with something like Scene or Copperplate, it gives a very romantic look. Perfect for wedding, which has been mentioned before in reviews. I think the Inglot dupe for this is 344, and it's probably more pigmented--as most Inglot shadows are. I'd use 344 and 339 together.

I still can't believe I had never heard of this e/s until I swatched in store...haux must be underhyped because this e/s is incredible. At first I wasn't sure because it is pretty ugly in the pan and by itself on my lids it makes me look sickly (NC20 brown eyes). However, I don't feel like my look is pulled together until I use haux. I only use it as a crease transition shade and underneath my lashline. I use it to blur any harsh lines. I do a smokey eye everyday and haux, a beautiful rosey-brown makes my brown eyes pop and blurs my smokey eyes into perfection. I didn't think it would do anything for my brown eyes but it makes them more vibrant. I don't have a lot of neutrals in my stash, but now that I have haux I don't really want any more.

I got this eyeshadow the other day, and when I initially saw it I wasn't all that impressed. I swatched it on my hand, and the pigmentation seemed kinda meh. Also, I'm NC50 and I didn't think that the eyeshadow would really show up on my lids without a paint pot to help the pigmentation out.
But, I was super wrong. I applied this shadow over my UDPP, and it was such a pretty brown with a slight mauve color. I can put this on my lid and a darker brown (like Brown Down or Ground Brown) in my crease and have a great everyday look. It's a great neutral to have in my collection.

I bought this as a lucky guess really for an eye shadow that would suit me. I'm a redhead with pale warm/neural skin and hazel eyes. It is a really nice warm pinkish toned brown which compliments my eyes nicely I think. I think I might end up wearing this most days for daytime look.

Haux seems like it is SO boring in the pan, but its really very unique. NC5 with amber eyes, red hair with blonde highlights. Today I used Shroom on the lid, Haux in the crease, and a mix of Vanilla & Brule on the browbone. It looked so pretty! Usually I really hate e/s with a red/pink base because they make me look tired or like I got punched in the eye. Still can't put my finger on it, but try pairing it with different shades and textures to see if it works for you. I had my doubts but with the combo listed above, I can totally make it work. I apply it with a 217 brush and it buffs it on lightly, but you can build up the intensity easily.
*EDIT* Yuck. Now I hate this shadow, it pulls too red on me. Blah.

This is a great eyeshadow if you have pale eyes! It is an awesome day to night shade which is perfectly paired with MAC's blackberry eyeshadow shade for the ideal smokey eye. I'd buy again. Excellent for fall!

This does so much more for my blue-green eyes than any bown/taupe does. Although I have & like MAC Satin Taupe and Style Snob, this is more flattering. I use it in the crease and it gives my lids a little warmth and brightens but yet with the depth I want.

Super nice color for green or hazel eyes. This light purple definitely makes them pop. I like to use this as a base over the entire lid, or I'll use a cream colored base on the lid, and Haux just in the crease. This color pairs nicely with Mac's Sketch, which is a darker purple.

Haux is my favorite daytime crease shade for fair skin and green eyes. Medium brown with red/mauve hints. Satin finish but looks almost matte. Great pigmentation, blends effortlessly.
I would never put it all over the lid though, would definitely look bruised then. One of my go- to looks is haux combined with painterly

I'll be completely honest - this colour never appealed to me. I was introduced to it when one of my brides brought me this colour to use in her crease on her wedding day because a MAC artist used it on her and she loved it. When I applied it I completely fell in love and had to go out and get it. It defines the crease subtly but is still noticeable. I can see it not working for certain skintones but I also found blending it out with a fluffy brush and putting something like "Blanc Type" or "Mylar" on the brow bone and blending it down makes it work better and takes away that bruise effect some people find. Try it :) ...I will definitely have this in my collection from now on!!

Just no pigment whatsoever almost. I swithched it out for Illumasqua Forgiveness.

I tried and tried to like Haux, but on me its the color of a bruise. A long long time ago I believed a MAC salesgirl and bought the comination of Haux and Girlie from her--I was looking for something other than the blah browns I was wearing. I cleaned them off before I left the store so I never saw them in daylight. Big mistake. Both colors looked awful on me. I was too embarrassed to take them back to the store. For a long time I thought it was me....like I wasnt applying them right. But it wasnt me. Haux and Girlie just dont go with my skintone. Haux gives me a bruised look. Girlie looks like allergy eyes or barbie pink. For the record, I am on the pale side with mostly yellowish undertones, and I have brown and dark green eyes. Haux and girlie arent neutrals, so make sure you check out how these look on you in real lighting before you buy.

Hit pan and have just repurchased this shade. Haux is a beautiful warn brown with pinky red undertones that really enhances my green eyes. I only use this shade in the crease or outer V. If I apply it as a lid colour I look like I was in a fight or really ill. The pigmentation is fantastic and blends so easily. If you like red or pink based shadows this is a great option.

I went to a MAC counter to test a few colours. Haux was among them.
From the beginning, I was suspicious, that the colour would be too red for me.
While trying it in the artificial light of the MAC counter, it looked really good and the SA told me, that this colour would work for me. I had to buy the colour online because the store doesnīt carry pro pans.
I went back to my office and then I looked in the mirror. Whoops. I looked tired, bruised and like I had a terrible hangover. The shade really brought out my undereye circles (although I used concealer) and made me look sick all over. As I thought about it, this is actually the shade of my undereye circles, which are reddish-purplish-blueish.
For reference, Iīm a MAC NC20, BB sand with dark lashes, dark eyebrows and amber eyes.
For anyone with this colour of undereye circles, this is probably not the best choice.
I highly suggest trying out the colour on a MAC counter, if thatīs possible.

Haux is a gorgeous pinky brown and works so well with my NC30 skin tone. The texture & color payoff is excellent, it photographs well. Very happy with this MAC eyeshadow & I think it should be in everyone's collection who love to wear neutral soft looks.

'Haux' is a medium brown with a slight hint of pink, and a red undertone. because this is a Satin; it is almost matte, but with a slight sheen and more colour blendability. what makes this colour totally and completely unique and undupable, is all of the above. this colour is like nothing i've tried before. pinky browns do exist, but rarely without shimmer and never (that i've ever seen) with a red base. this eyeshadow also has a slight ashy tone, which still preserves the brown in the shade and always keeps it at a nice medium tone; not too dark and smokey, or too light.
i am wearing it today in conjunction with MAC's 'Red Brick', in order to bring out that red base even more. you could also pair it with purpley pinky colours to enhace the pinkiness instead. this is the kind of colour that can look different everyday according to what other eyeshadows you mix it with, because of how layered it is. so if you already own it and don't like it, try to mix it with other colours, and you'll see that you'll eventually find a way to appreciate this unusual shade!

Omg. Love this! WOC, go get it, please. It doesnt look like much and I dont know why but it is an extremely underrated eyeshadow. Dont hear anyone talking about it on youtube. But it is an extremely gorgeous neutral eyeshadow on my skin. It's pinky-mauvy and is just a really pretty skin-tonish color. Great. One of my fave neutrals - right up there with Tete-a-tint. Definite thumbs up! NW45.
