Is there a good illuminating eye cream??

Trying a sample of White Lucent from Shiseido.  I'm not too crazy about it.  I think I need more help, basically to brighten and add some fullness under my eyes.  I don't know what on earth happened to my eyes!!   I look sooo tired and hollow in that area.   I really don't want any eraser or hylighter type products...just hoping you ladies can recommend a brightening, filling look, type of eye cream.

  I was considering Consulte Beaute eye cream because it's pink, and said to add volume, but it's loaded with parabens, and reviews are mixed.   Then there's SkinMedica illuminating eye, I might consider.  Waiting to hear from you pros..appreciate!!

In my opinion Nutra Bisse, The Cure eye illuminating concealer is the best!  It is very easy to apply, nice and light to the touch.  It looks really good on.  I apply after my foundation (Perricone NFF)

The problem is you use a dot for both eyes, and it comes in this larger pump bottle...it takes forever to go through.  A good year maybe!

Can you give a little more info about this, where it can be purchased, maybe a link?  Sounds like something I might like to try. Thanks!

Thanks f

Bello for giving Himi the link.  Yes, it is pricey!  That is why I mentioned they should sell it cheaper in smaller bottles.  You only use a small dot for both eyes.  At least I do.  I have had the bottle for 9 months and the thing still is half full I think.  IDK why they do this, I can't imagine anyone slathering it on liberally.  But cha never know, LOL!

 

I got mine at Neiman's during a sale, and a promotion.  I think I got triple points, 10% mrrebates, a free make up kit from Nutra Bisse, 5 samples and I earned a 50 dollar gift card.

Ya know, @shoekitty, I have often wished cosmetic companies would halve and even quarter the amount of product and price.  For example, I have and love Nars pot eyeliners.  I need to toss my fav because it is drying out and I've had it for much longer than I'm sure I should.  I've used it a lot but there is still at least 2/3 of a pot left.  I'd much rather have less and completely use the product before it goes off.  Who could possibly use it all?

Loks lovely but I may stick w/my Lancome Progres for the day. I really like the illuminating effect.

Surely there must be other illuminating eye creams out there more afforable than the NutraBisse.  I don't doubt the poster's claims about the performance of the cream, but it is something I could never afford.

I'm interested in finding an illuminating eye cream as well.  Are there any other readers who might have some suggestions?

How about something like an undereye brightener like Skinn Eye Brightener, it is skin tinted. Garnier makes a nice skin tinted one too.
