As part of getting to know my collection, I want to spend more time reviewing all the products I have. Next up is everything I own from BK Beauty, which happens to be eight of their brushes. I wanted to thoroughly test these products to provide a more detailed review of them. I’ve gotten a ton of use out of them so if you have any questions I haven’t addressed, please ask in the comments. As always, thank you so much for being here, and it would mean so much to me if you subscribe here or on Instagram @liftbakelove for new posts! All links are affiliate links, but all opinions are my own, and I bought these myself.
101 Contoured Foundation – This brush is the perfect shape for so many things – foundation, bronzer, blush, highlighter. Because of the angle and the shape, it works so quickly for anything I’m doing. Even though it’s quite large, I still find I can be precise with it with the added bonus of blending super quickly. This is my favorite brush for cream bronzer and blush in particular, and I find myself using it over any other brush I have so much that I honestly want a second one. I also will use the top edge for cream highlighter in a pinch. The density is perfect and doesn’t “eat up” too much product. It’s one of the first brushes I would rebuy now if I lost my collection, and that’s saying so much since I have such a large collection of brushes.
106 Round Foundation – I love using this for cream blush when the 101 is drying from cleaning or if I just haven’t cleaned it yet. It also does work great for foundation if my other foundation brushes are out of rotation for the moment. The size makes it perfect for a more precise application vs the 101 or 107 if I want to be more specific with placement for foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighter, etc. I love how dense it is and quickly is blends products out.
105 Large Buffer – I love how big and fluffy this brush is. It’s one of my favorites for powder bronzer when I really want to look sunkissed and want to put on a lot of bronzer really quickly. I also use it to powder all over if I know I need my makeup to really last so having a dense brush for powder application makes sense. If you’re a person who puts highlighter on your body, this would also be the perfect brush for that. Of all these brushes, it’s the one I use the least but I’m still happy I have it.
107 Flat Blush – I use this the most for foundation even though it’s technically not made for it. I can do a full face of foundation is less than 10 seconds because it blends so well and so quickly. The flatter shape is so helpful to get around the contours of my face and areas like the sides of my nose. It’s kept it shape so well even though I’ve washed it a ton now (like all the brushes), which is great since that’s one of the things that makes this brush so great.
204 Smudge It – This is the most perfect smudger brush, and I’ve been on the hunt for one for years. The shape and density allows you to pick up shadow and use it eyeliner so easily. Because it’s a bit bigger than other similar brushes, you can actually see the liner you’ve applied instead of the tiny brushes that you can barely notice what they did. This is also perfect for smudging out eyeliners or blending them into the other shadows and cream products on the eyes.
205 Contoured Shader – This is my second least used brush of the ones I have. Like all the other brushes, it’s high quality, super soft, and the perfect density to use with eyeshadow. It’s just not a shape I find myself reaching for very often. But if you are a person who wants the perfect brow bone highlight, this is for you.
Angie Hot & Flashy A502 Crease Shader– I love how this is so small and so fluffy at the same time! I honestly can’t count the number of crease brushes I have at this point, but this one is still special. It’s perfect for actually defining the crease (vs moving shadow around). Because it’s small, I can use it for the outer corner, inner corner, under my eyes – basically anywhere I want to place and blend shadow. It’s so soft so it doesn’t scratch, and it’s just a joy to use.
Angie Hot & Flashy A506 Concealer – I know I’ve written about so many concealer brushes at this point, but I think this one is my favorite of all of them. This has really densely packed bristles which I really appreciate for applying products under my eyes. It’s also designed to mimic the shape of your fingertip, and I find that it makes it like I’m blending out with my finger but without losing any coverage. Because of the shape, it’s also super easy to get into harder to reach spots. I’ve been using it every day with my undereye corrector, and it helps so much when I’m attempting to correct my dark circles. It also works great for spot concealing given how precise you can get with it.

Brushes are amazing I have purchased individually 101, 106, 503 many more I would.like. but wayyyy toooo expensive. When the sets first came out they were $125 us and 149 Canadian, now they are almost $200…..as a.mother Lisa J should price accordingly considering most of her you tubes are sponsored and she has affiliation links. Come on now, especially given covid times
I feel selfish and horrible to purchase these brushes, I am a single woman who has a mortgage and retired the last the I will do is spend $30 or $40 on a brush….but I would if $20….I get a sick feeling every time I see one of Lisa J’s commercial with her driving her escalade up to the hotel.
Thanks for commenting, and I’m so sorry I missed this when you commented originally! I waited to get any expansion set brushes until Black Friday because as much as I love BK, I just couldn’t get them full price. I also have ELF and Real Technique brushes I love too and appreciate that they are under $10!
