Although MAC Haux proved to be totally different than I expected, it's to this date one of the best matte eyeshadows I have tried both in terms of quality and color.
The shade is a unique and flattering mauve (on my it looks more plum than the pictures online, with a touch of rosey hint). The color is more intense on my light-medium complexion than in the pan, and it's an incredibly pigmented eye shadow. I purchased it thinking it would be a great medium-transition color; it would work better as a transition for medium or more tanned complexions.
Performance wise, it's simply amazing: easy to work with any brush, very blendable and buildable.
I can use it as a transition shade if I sheer it out and apply with a fluffy brush and light touch; but I like it better as an one-eyeshadow look. It's an outstanding base color for medium complexions, I love to pair it with shimmers like MAC Cranberry or Star Violet.
It' not stiff matte, it's a little powdery when I pick it with a brush, but it doesn't have fallout.
