Rated 5 out of 5 by suki98 My favorite QVC item
I used my red sets for the holidays. I have a total of 6 brass candle holders on my mantle. They look beautiful and I have received several compliments. I have used them every night since Thanksgiving with the same batteries. Please bring more in different colors. If I could I would give them 10 stars!

I ordered these candles in cream and they arrived in red. Batteries didn't last long either.
Rated 1 out of 5 by skeehle Didn't last long
They look great and looked very nice in my windows for Christmas. But, they were dead by morning, after being on for only 10-12 hours, each. I used fresh batteries. During the presentation of the item, they claimed a muuuuuuuch lonnnnggggger amount of time that the candles would stay lit. I cannot recommend these. I'm on the fence about returning them...feel guilty bc I used them for that one night (Christmas Eve to Christmas Day).

I am disappointed. The cost of a dozen batteries, not included, boost the cost of these hard to control candles. The flicker is very slight and you have to take them out to turn them on or off, then rearrange them in your candleholders. Too much trouble. Not enough WOW.
Rated 2 out of 5 by pava sizing issue
The candles are very pretty. I don't mind that the flame doesn't flicker like the Illuminaras, as it does give the suggestion of movement from a short distance. My problem is the same as other reviews, the base doesn't fit any of my candle holders. It is too big, and you can't push them down too tight because you will break the base, plus you must pick up the candle to turn it off. I think if the sizing issue can be corrected they are a good value for the money. If I cannot find a candle holder that will fit these candles, then I will return them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bosse ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL
I received my ivory Mirage taper candles today and I could not wait to put them in my wall sconces. They are absolutely beautiful. They look like there are flames in the candles. The wax finish gives them a realistic look. I like that they are on a 5 hour timer. Easy to adjust from hour to hour. They take 3 AA batteries. They fit easily into my 2 old gold flake sconces that are about 75 years old. I was skeptic because I thought the candle base would be too large for the sconces, but they are a perfect fit. Boy did I get a bargain -- so I ordered the red for Christmas and Valentine Day. I have over a dozen Luminara flame less candles and these Mirage tapers are just as lovely as the Luminara candles at a fraction of the cost. On several occasions, our electricity has gone out for several hours and boy were we happy to have all these candles. So now I even have more.
I give these a must buy.

I have had the cream tapers in my windows for a couple of weeks, and they look very realistic! There is the same flickering glow as real candles. I bought 2 sets, red and cream, with this half price deal. I paid full price for my first set and feel they are worth it. I own sets of the Luminaras and I feel these are a great "first cousin". I hope they work for others, too!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Laurie M No comparison to Luminara tapers
These burn through a set of batteries in less than a day. The flame is fixed and doesn't move like the Luminaras. I was tempted by the price, so I guess I got what I paid for.
