Some of my blog readers and Instagram followers however were interested to know how the Huda Beauty Easy Bake compares to all the other existing powder in the market, so the best way to know the difference is to test and compare all these products that I currently use.

Ben Nye Luxury Powder VS Huda Beauty Easy Bake

Since I have the Huda Beauty Banana Bread, I have compared this to the Ben Nye Banana Powder. The Ben Nye is quite popular and have been used by Kim Kardashian as well as Huda Kattan herself for baking.

The Ben Nye Banana powder is much yellower than the Huda Beauty Easy Bake’s Banana Bread version. Huda Beauty is also much softer and silkier and has very tiny shiny particles. Although both powders are matte finish, Ben Nye is more matte, while Huda Beauty still gives that very, very slight reflective effect.

In terms of being long wearing, these two are almost the same as I have both use them for many hours without fail. However, in terms of appearance, Huda Beauty looks more like skin and feels light as air when applied.

WINNER: Huda Beauty Easy Bake

Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder VS Huda Beauty Easy Bake

The Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre is one of my favorite powders so it was interesting for me to compare it side by side with Huda Beauty Easy Bake.

While applying both, I felt that both had silky smooth texture, both also had light reflective pigments, and both had a slight fragrance, although Huda Beauty is a little more “perfumey” than Chanel.

Chanel did have a peachy tone which is slightly darker In effect than Huda Beauty. However, aside from the color tone difference, both products were so close to determine a winner as the finished looks are almost identical!

WINNER: It’s a Tie! 

Kryolan Fixing Powder VS Huda Beauty Easy Bake

The Kryolan Derma Color Waterproof Fixing Powder is used by a lot of makeup artists especially if they want to really set makeup and make it smudge and sweat proof. This is actually available in 12 different shades, more than Huda Beauty Easy Bake’s 8 shades.

After applying the Kryolan Fixing Powder P3 shade however side by side by Huda Beauty Easy Bake, there were noticeable differences. First, the tone of Kryolan has a more pinkish tone.  Second, Huda Beauty looked more natural and skin like while with Kryolan, it really looked that I added makeup on top of my foundation. The Kryolan also felt drier after some time on the skin compared to Huda Beauty.

WINNER: Kryolan wins on the number of shades with 12 but in terms of application, Huda Beauty takes the trophy.

Laura Mercier Translucent Powder VS Huda Beauty Easy Bake

This is probably one of the most anticipated comparison as Laura Mercier is a favorite by a lot of women. What I noticed is that Huda Beauty Easy Bake is a lot silkier than Laura Mercier but Laura Mercier is more matte. Although Huda Beauty is matte , it still gives a luminous effect.

Also since the Huda Beauty Easy Bake has a shade, it can color correct especially under your eyes, unlike Laura Mercier which just absorbs the color of your foundation.

The side by side comparison do not look very far apart BUT Huda Beauty edges out Laura Mercier in terms of being long-wearing. In my past experience, Laura Mercier is good but cannot last all day, unlike Huda Beauty which I tested recently for 7 hours and is very long wearing.

WINNER: Huda Beauty

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder vs Huda Beauty Easy Bake

The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish  is an award winning powder and is very well known for its lightness. It is in compact form so it is actually more convenient to carry.  I have a really good experience using this as a setting powder for a year now so I thought it was a great idea to test the Charlotte Tilbury #2 for medium skin tone against the Huda Beauty Easy Bake.

In terms of look, Charlotte Tilbury has no reflective particles and was more luminous in finish giving you a blurred look.  But what really surprised me though is that when I used it side by side with Huda Beauty Easy Bake, Huda Beauty was much lighter in feeling and application than Charlotte Tilbury!

WINNER: I was almost sure that Charlotte will win over Huda here but boy was I wrong! Huda Beauty wins again!
