The latest makeup creation from Huda Boss herself is the hottest summer beauty product every Dubai gal must get! Inspired by yummy dessert flavors, the Huda Beauty Easy Bake is a luxurious loose powder that aims to give you that airbrushed finish.
Of course, I had to battle the online crowd and add this to my Sephora shopping cart. At 174 AED, you may think that it’s expensive, but once you try it, I’m sure you’ll start to wonder how you’ve ever survived Dubai summer without this!
Here are the reasons why!
Available in 8 shades
Unlike other loose powders that are only available in a few shades, Huda included 8 different shades. This really takes into account the diversity of women’s skin color, especially here in Dubai where you can find more than a hundred nationalities!
Sugar Cookie, Cupcake, Pound Cake, Banana Bread, Blondie, Kunafa, Cinnamon Bun and Coffee Cake are the 8 shades that can suitably complement different skin tones and foundation shades.
I love the inclusion of the Middle Eastern dessert Kunafa but it was a bit too dark for me so I personally got the Banana Bread which has a yellowish, golden undertone.
If you’ve spent even a few weeks under the Dubai summer sun, then you can understand that sometimes even the most hardworking matte foundation can crack under the extreme heat. Without the use of setting powders, your face can look cakey and even greasy.
The Huda Beauty Easy Bake gives you a matte finish but still has that skin-looking luminous effect, so there’s no fear of looking oilier in the process. Huda understands that when we mean matte, we still want to look natural.
Super Fine Texture
The super fine and creamy texture of the Huda Beauty Easy Bake locks in your foundation or concealer. It is also pigmented so it minimizes the appearance of pores. You will definitely look airbrushed by using this.
The Easy Bake is said to last for up to 10 hours, fade proof. Being a Dubai mainstay herself, I’m super sure Huda took into account Dubai’s 45 C degree weather to keep you shine free!
I have tested it for 7 Hours straight outside in the Dubai weather, I can say that it does hold quite well. I even applied it while in the car! After 7 hours, it was a success, still smooth , shine free and no lines or cracks!
Unlike other bulky loose powders, the packaging of the Huda Beauty Easy Bake is so compact. The rectangular packaging makes it easier to fit into any makeup case. It is travel friendly so you can have it on the go if ever you need to do make up in the car.
The Huda Beauty Easy Bake is available online on Sephora but stocks are almost out. As of writing only the 3 darkest shades are available for online ordering so you better get your shopping cart ready for the restock!
Meanwhile, I thought it would be fun to include an edible #EasyBake Banana Bread Recipe that you can actually eat and bake yourself!
WARNING: The recipe below is designed for actual baking and eating, not for your face!
