11" Lit Glitter Candle with Flickering Tip by Valerie
perfect candle light in the clear version.
I ordered two last Christmas and see I haven't reviewed it here. One I kept and used it well into the early winter months of the new year. As it is clear it doesn't scream holidays. I did replace the bulb only because someone knocked it over and in the process of saving it from falling further must have hit the bulb. I took the bulb to a local hardware store for replacement. It has a thin base so wanted to make sure I got the proper one as some has shorter necks. This one needs the longer neck bulb because of how it sits inside the top of it. Wonderful to watch both the flickering portion as well as the lava type sparkles inside.
I have to order more!
I just plugged it in and I'm in LOVE! I can't say how it will be long term but for the last 10 minutes it has been the love of my life. The flame is wonderful and mesmerizing. I'm returning so many things from Valerie lately so I'm shocked that this is a 5 star keeper! I just ordered 2 more for gifts. I love how big it is and I really like that I don't have to worry about changing batteries in this. Kids and adults will find joy in this. I think it has the Christmas magic and winter magic. Please, Valerie, try for a standard. I love you and your stuff and I hate having to return so many of your items - it's heartbreaking.
I'm so happy I can keep this one.
I bought the 11" Clear Glitter Candle with Flickering Tip by Valerie. The candle does plug into an outlet. The candle is larger than I thought it would be. When plugged in the glitter in the middle section swirls around. It is a wonderful addition to my Christmas decorations and looks great.
Glad I opened before giving as gift.
I purchased this for a friend's August birthday. We enjoy watching the Christmas in July shows each year and knew it would be appreciated. Positives: it was delivered in three days, was very well packed and is substantial size. Now for the negatives: there is a milky haze on top half of candle, as if the liquid had leaked. There were no visible cracks so I plugged it in to see if maybe it would clear up with heat. The candle and flame bulb both lit without problem, so I left it on for maybe ten minutes. When I checked back the flame had stopped flickering and was out. The haze was still clearly visible so I'm sending it back- on QVC's dime.
Thank you soooo much
I bought something similar to this years ago for my grandma. This past Christmas while she was in hospice care I asked her what happened to it. She said It stopped years ago. When I got home for some reason I was just clicking around on the qvc website and found this. Needless to say a week later I walked this into her room and set it up for her. She loved it even more then the original one I got for her. She loved watching it. We kept it on until her passing. We used it next to her casket at the service everyone loved her light. It now is used by my son in his room at night as his night light and reminds him of his great-Grammie. Thank you so much for having this. It brought joy and comfort not only to my grandma in her final days but to everyone who remembered her and now my son. Thank you and god bless.
Nice candle, poor design.
My only complaint is that you must use a smaller wattage bulb in the base. The bulb it came with generated enough heat that it made the plastic bulb socket brittle. When the bulb burnt out and had to be replaced, the socket fell apart and the new bulb cannot be screwed in. If you buy one of these, I suggest removing the bulb it came with and put a smaller wattage bulb in its place before you use it. Other than that, it is a nice piece.
best purchase ever
i just love my candle i use it for all holidays.i would buy it for my mom for mothers day you can put any color behind it and it looks good.
These candles are absolutely beautiful!
I bought two & they have been on my mantel since Thanksgiving & are
staying there until Spring.
Buy two or more & you won't be sorry!
I got the clear candle, it is beautiful, love all the different color sparkles that float slowly in the clear glass globe.......the flickering candle light....this is staying out all year long...maybe I will get more colors next year......
Glitter Candle okay, but HATE the Flickering Flame
When I first opened this candle, I thought it was used because there was a white film on it and scratches; based on other reviewers' comments, I guess this has happened to others too. I tried to clean the film off and finally discovered that Windex and some elbow grease takes the white film off. The scratches?? Hard to see when the light is on & glitter is moving. I bought this on clearance and didn't return it because of shipping costs. I have the thinner pair of clear glitter candles and LUV them, but this one is not worth it and seems to be of different quality than the pair of glitter candles.
Cannot recommend this candle.
I really liked the way the candel looked in my birdcage with greenery but about two days later the top light didn't work and the glitter was nowhere to be seen, so I shook the candel and eventually the light came back on. It is a lovely piece but the quality of mechanics is just not there.
Not a good purchase
I purchased 2 of these last year, one gold and one red. The red candle flame worked for 1 Christmas. Now this year it stopped working. At the very least there should be replacement bulbs. The candle is worthless now and it can't even be returned.
