Umbra Prisma 4×4” Frame – Value $10

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0007

This picture frame is so fab I was surprised to see it’s only $10!

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0009

The design is modern and looks good from every angle – and the quality is great, too! (Seriously, how is this frame only $10?)

Umbra Birchbox Exclusive Hand Mirror – Value $18?

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0011

This piece is exclusive to this Limited Edition box! (One side is magnified.)

I love the gold color, and this is definitely a perfect vanity accessory.

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Liquid Lip in Gwyneth – FULL SIZE Value $24

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0016

This is a liquid lipstick with high-shine and pigment.

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0017

The formula is moisturizing, shiny, and not sticky at all. Here it is swatched:

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0032

Gorgeous color!

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0018

Library of Flowers Handcreme in Linden – FULL SIZE! Value $24

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0019

This packaging is gorgeous! (I think this would make a perfect hostess gift if you don’t want to keep it for yourself!)

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0020

The scent is a mix of Linden blossom, narcissus, clover honey. It’s a little on the floral side for me, but the formula itself is great – moisturizing, and not greasy!

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0013

Davines OI All in One Milk – Travel-size Value $11.85

This is a post-shower leave-in treatment. (Birchbox actually recommends stepping out of the shower between shampoo and conditioner to apply this, but I did it post conditioner and still loved the results.) It left my hair soft and non-greasy at all!

Candlefish Candle Tin in No. 62 – Value $8

birchbox-good-as-gold-limited-edition-box-november-2016-0026

This candle tin is made from 100% soy wax, and the scent is described as a blend of lilac, rose, and blackcurrant.

Fun Fact – Candlefish has its own subscription box!

Birchbox Brush Set – Value $30?

More gold! I love the look of the gold metal with the wooden handle. The bristles are super soft, too.

Birchbox Angled Eye Liner Brush

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil – 10 ml Value $5.80

This dry oil is a cult-classic! I’ve received it in subscription boxes a few times, and I can definitely appreciate why it is so popular. It’s great for giving your skin a sheen, and it can be used on your face, body, or hair – so it’s an all-star multi-use product!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $131! I think that’s a great value for a $45 box. (And even better with the 15% or 20% off coupon.) I love all things gold, so I’m a little biased with this box – but I think everything looks great together and would make a fab gift.

What do you think of the Birchbox Limited Edition: Good as Gold Box?

This is currently 30% off. I got mine last week and love it, including the cute box.

Michelle

I ordered it based Muoi’s note that it’s 30% off and got it today. Wow, this may be the best $30 I ever spent. Thanks!

Megan

How big is the gold mirror?

Rosemary

I wish everyone stopped sending Manna Kadar…I am yet to receive ONE item that wasn’t smashed to s%#t. I can’t even be bothered to ask for replacements because I have to assume it is a very cheap quality and badly made product for it to be broken every time I get something.
What a waste of shipping resources.

Lindsay

Constance

Originally didn’t plan on buying this but after the review, had to place my order. I needed makeup brushes & everything in gold is so pretty! Hurray for the coupon code & points!

Randi

Manna Kadar is everywhere! You literally can’t avoid it! Even when you are buying a box where you know the contents it manages to sneak into the mystery sample pack!

But I do like this box 🙂 haven’t used anything yet, but definitely excited for the picture frame!
