Beautycounter Flawless in Five Review: The Makeup Routine for Busy Moms
Do you feel like it’s impossible to find time for yourself these days? I do too, especially as a busy mom of two littles. You’re busy meal planning, budgeting, or playing hide-and-go-seek. That’s why I was so excited when my girlfriend introduced me to Beautycounter’s Flawless in Five. This kit can replace my existing makeup routine (a.k.a nothing). It has everything you need for a quick beauty routine and will make you look like a flawless and natural beauty.
I love how all the products are made with safe, healthy ingredients. Say goodbye to allergic reactions and skin irritations! Beautycounter claims that Flawless in Five is “effortless beauty in five minutes”. I couldn’t agree more! Read on to see my thoughts as well as some before-and-after photos! 🙈

What is Beautycounter Flawless in Five?
The Flawless in Five set includes the following six safer, high-performing products:
- Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation or Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer
- Skin Twin Creamy Concealer
- Color Define Brow Pencil or Brilliant Brow Gel
- Lengthening or Volumizing Mascara
- Satin Powder Blush

When purchasing the set, you can customize and choose the shades that work best for you. The site walks you through each step of the way until you have selected all six products.
Beautycounter also suggests shades for the rest of the kit based on your foundation selection. This includes your concealer, blush, and lip gloss. As someone who doesn’t wear makeup often, this is great!
Flawless in Five Product Review
Here is a review of each Flawless in Five product individually:
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer, (light)
I chose the tinted moisturizer since I don’t need much coverage. This moisturizer is perfect for evening my skin tone with sheer coverage. It felt lightweight on my skin and blends well. It also has SPF 20 protection, so it’s a great all-in-one product.
Skin Twin Creamy Concealer, (light 1)
This concealer is the perfect partner to the tinted moisturizer. The creamy texture provides great coverage for my dark circles. And as a plus, it blends well with just my fingers for on-the-go or last-minute makeup.
Brilliant Brow Gel, (dark)
I chose the brilliant brow gel over the color define brow pencil. It keeps my finicky brow hairs in place. 😀 The gel adds a natural-looking tint to my brows while conditioning them with naturally-derived oils, butters, and waxes.
Volumizing Mascara, (black)
Beautycounter’s volumizing mascara plumps up my thin lashes and makes them more full. The hourglass-shaped brush helped define each lash and applied the mascara without clumps. While I have only used this mascara for a few weeks, I haven’t noticed any flaking or smudging. It’s also easy to remove with this DIY eye makeup remover with eyelash conditioner.
Satin Powder Blush, (melon)
This powder blush helps you achieve naturally flushed cheeks or a healthy glow. Just quickly apply with a brush or your fingers and you’re good to go!
Beyond Gloss, (peony)
The Flawless in Five set ends with awesome Beyond Gloss for your lips. This finishing touch will make your lips shine and provide long-lasting conditioning. I especially love this gloss because of the Conditioning Complex. This is a blend of beeswax, candelilla and organic carnauba wax that locks in moisture and leaves my lips soft and smooth. The unique applicator didn’t just glop on the gloss but delivered the perfect amount.
As with any product, there are some downsides to Flawless in Five:
No Carrying Case.
Since Flawless in Five is marketed as an all-in-one makeup routine, it would be nice to have a cute carrying case. This would keep all six products together and ready to go.
No Brushes Included.
While you can use your fingers for most products, a brush would be great to have for even distribution. Not to mention you will now have makeup on your fingers that you have to wipe off, which may be hard if you’re on the go.
So this may be con only to me, but I like to have eyeliner as part of my makeup routine. It’s not a huge deal as I can just add in my favorite eyeliner!
Where to Find Beautycounter Flawless in Five and Price
Beautycounter Flawless in Five can be ordered from your favorite BC consultant or on the Beautycounter website.
The Flawless in Five set is priced at $150. Yes, I know. It seems expensive and I will be honest that I balked at the price at first. Purchasing the set saves you $40 as getting each item individually would be $190.
But, after using these products for the last few weeks, I assure you that Flawless in Five is well worth it. The products not only enhance your natural beauty. You also know you are using safe and clean ingredients on your precious face that gives you peace of mind.
