If you’re looking for a neutral crease shade that’s a change up from taupe, then I suggest you try Mac’s Haux eyeshadow.
Haux is officially described as soft muted rosy brown; I say it’s a warm, mauve brown, leaning more towards mauve, than brown.
It’s part of the Mac satin family, the middle ground between sheen and matte. Although I see no evidence of even a subtle sheen, it’s definitely matte – but what a matte!
Haux is a gorgeous, quality eyeshadow; strong pigment, no fallout, smooth to apply. It doesn’t kick up dust in the pan and it’s blendable, but also buildable.
I use it in the crease and wing it out. It plays nicely with all shades and doesn’t crease, especially important for mature eyes.
It’s very flattering on my fair skin. On darker skin tones, it would be the perfect ‘there, not there’ eyeshadow, with enough colour payoff to look polished, it’s a classy shade.
I absolutely love this eyeshadow – I purchased a second one the next day. I’m sure there are cheaper dupes, but I don’t know if anything can come close to this unique shade and smooth application.
