I absolutely love this color. It's a rosy, plummy-brown and looks beautiful paired with other shadows, or on it's own. This is an HG color for me because it's so versatile. It can be used for a natural look, or for a heavy, smokey eye. It can be worn on the lid or the crease; as a wash of color, cut crease, or transition shadow. You create the intensity, and however you use it, it looks fabulous.

I have finished two pans of Haux and will continue on always having it. Although listed as a satin, it does not look shimmery at all, this has more to do with the texture of the powder. It is a rosy medium brown that can be worn alone as a single color, or paired with a darker crease color like Folie. Or go with a shimmer pink on the lid and use Haux as a crease color. Just a versatile color that looks very flattering on the skin and works for a number of looks.

I am so happy with this! I always thought because I had skin with strong yellow undertones (NC30) I should stick to gold, orange, and brown tones on the eyes as well. I had previously been using Saddle as my go-to outer corner/crease for natural looks shade. I was getting really curious about the UD Naked3 look because it seems to have been trendy for a while. I got this single because it was unique to my collection and it would give a rose toned neutral look. I wasn't expecting it to be flattering, I just wanted that rose look. Wow, I am blown away by how pretty this looks and it wakes up my whole face. This is way more flattering on me than Saddle or any warm brown I've tried. It is pigmented and shows up on the lid with one dip in the pan and blends out with almost no effort. Best makeup purchase I've made in a long time!

One of my all time favourite mac eyeshadows it is a staple for every collection. It's a cool tone pinky plum shade. I got plae skin and this in the crease with dramatic eyeliner is a simple yet classic and glamourous look it's perfect and simple as a last minute party or event look and it suits every skin tone and complexion so it is a must for everyone

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.

I got this a few days ago and cannot stop wearing it! It's a gorgeous dusty plum slightly brown shade that looks amazing on my warm and yellow undertoned nc45 skin! Absolute must buy! I love the satin feel it's so perfect! It lasts so long and it's just such a gorgeous color! I'm so obsessed! Lol just go try it and you'll see!

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.
