perfect primer - 14-10-2018 by

makes my skin feel flawless and clear all year road. absolutely would recommend. only inconvenience is the picture comes off the bottle quickly but that's not really a problem just a note.

Smells Amazing! - 12-10-2018 by

I use this as my daily primer - it smells amazing and makes your skin feel super hydrated as soon as you put it on. I tend to go towards other primers though for night time as my skin gets a little oily with this one (I think because its so hydrating)

Holy Grail of Primers - 05-10-2018 by

Could not recommend this primer more! I have tested multiple brands of primers and none have compared to this, it leaves skin hydrated and smooth allowing for even application and has great value for money with a decent amount of product in each tube.

I even use this product on no makeup days to give my face a smooth and brightened appearance!

Best By Far. - 02-10-2018 by

I have no idea of the number of primers I've used, some dreadful, several quite good. I keep coming back to this one because it is the only one I've been able to use consistently, with any foundation that suits my very sensitive skin. It glides on and feels lovely and keeps whatever makeup I use looking great right through the day. It is economical as you need very little.

Not for sensitive skin - 02-10-2018 by

I got this because it worked well and helped my foundation go on flawlessly. After using it for a few months it didn't agree with my sensitive skin. Also it's formulated with parabens

Best primer - 28-09-2018 by

This is my go to primer for clients as it suits all skin types and makes the skin smooth to create a smooth landing for the foundation!

Favourite primer - 27-09-2018 by

I have been using this primer for years and it never fails. Still my favourite primer! Its nice and thin, doesn't smother your skin, absorbs well and doesn't leave your skin looking oily.

Good Primer - Smells Great - 26-09-2018 by

This primer smells absolutely amazing and feels super hydrating on the skin when applied! I do find that it does make my skin get oily towards the middle of the day in my T Zone and usually I dont get very oily skin - only downfall i can find. But other than that it does last a long time and is really hydrating. Would be amazing for people with dry skin - wouldn't recommend for someone with oily skin!

The Best Value - 21-09-2018 by

A small amount goes a long way with this primer.
I find that my foundation us flawless throughout the day and doesn't budge.

Must have - 21-09-2018 by

Must have for a perfect look and flawless foundation.

Very hydrating - 20-09-2018 by

This primer feels very hydrating on my dry skin and my makeup lasts well with it., However, I'm not sure if it's worth the price tag, you can find some primers just as good for cheaper.

Feels good on the skin - 19-09-2018 by

Hydrating primer - makes a difference in the way my makeup sits. I have oily skin & this was super nice on the skin! Lightweight & holds the makeup in place all day!

Amazing - 18-09-2018 by

I have a lot of redness in my skin and I feel the chamomile calms it down a lot. I always worry that with my dry skin how any product will go but this was amazing! My makeup did not move the whole day.

Not great for my sensitive skin - 13-09-2018 by

This primer made my sensitive skin break out. It felt good and looked great on though

Great primer - 12-09-2018 by

Love this primer! I felt like I didn't need a lot of make up after applying because my skin was so smooth and just a little liquid makeup went a long way.

Beautiful base - 12-09-2018 by

I really like this primer although I tend to prefer a more tacky primer so feels more like a moisturiser but does plump out skin nicely and let’s foundation sit beautifully for full day of wear with minimal creasing or movement

Best all rounder - 10-09-2018 by

After receiving this as a tester and having issues with my current primer i will be purchasing this shortly. My tester has lasted a month ( only wear makeup twice a week or so) . And i love it. Foundation glides on over this primer and looks radiant and flawless. My skin also loves this product and doesn't react in breakouts like it can with SO many others.
Must have product

Love this! - 06-09-2018 by

I use this as my everyday foundation primer and it smells so amazing and makes my skin just feel really refreshed and hydrated! I do find that towards the end of the day it does make my skin feel oily though and I have since found another primer for around the same price that works better (for my skin). I still will use this one for day to day work though. Great for dry skin!

My first ever primer - 05-09-2018 by

This was the first primer I ever used way back when I first started using makeup and only have good memories of it. Applies nicely, and gives such a velvet base for foundation, allows it to go on smoothly and makes my skin look just flawless! and added bonus, it doesn't break me out! Bless this product!

Smooth blend - 27-08-2018 by

This is a fantastic primer for an all day/ all night it’s refreshing and gives you a great canvas for your face . A little goes a long way

Go to primer - 22-08-2018 by

Out of all the primers I’ve tried this is the one you should splurge on! It’s ideal for all skin types, particularly dry or combination as it moisturises any dry patches and gives you a smooth canvas for you foundation. It smells amazing and calms down any skin irritations before applying the rest of your makeup. Works especially great under a matte foundation such as China Doll. It’s Napoleon Perdis’ most iconic product for a reason!

Great base! - 22-08-2018 by

Received this as a sample and had to purchase straight away. Does such a great correcting job and really evens my skin tone so it’s perfect for applying foundation. Subtly illuminates without being too over the top.

So soft - 21-08-2018 by

Received this as a gift and I was so grateful. I often overlook the importance of primer and this one made SUCH a difference to the overall finish of my foundation. Very smooth and soft. Helps foundation sink in nicely

Primer perfect - 20-08-2018 by

One of my go to primers, worth the purchase.

Great Product - 15-08-2018 by

This primer works well on my sensitive skin. It smooths on easily with no stickyness. It is easy to apply my foundation afterwards with no problems. My makeup stays set all day even on warmer days. It's a great product that have and will continue to use and re-purchase.

Helps my makeup sit well - 15-08-2018 by

I do not often wear foundation as it doesn't seem to sit nicely on my sometimes oily skin.
With this primer it seems to help stop my makeup separating, but also delay oil shining through. Would recommend to other oily skinned girls :)

Good primer - 13-08-2018 by

I found this primer really good. My makeup didn’t move around as I’ve found with other primers I’ve tried. It goes really far so you don’t need heaps.

Liquid Gold - 13-08-2018 by

Not only does this primer look a million bux in its gold packaging, but it also works a treat for smoothing out the skin so that foundation application gone on easier for a flawless finish

Beautiful product - 08-08-2018 by

This is a fantastic primer. It is lightly scented but not irritating to my sensitive skin. The product feels light and isn’t heavy at all, so it is quickly absorbed without leaving a weird residue. My foundation stays on beautifully all day when I use this primer. I think the price is good considering the quality and the fact that you really don’t need to use much, meaning it lasts for ages.

One of the best - 31-07-2018 by

I have combination skin, which is a bit on the dry side, especially in winter and this primer has proven to be the best, ensuring my skin stays hydrated. It also provides the perfect base to put makeup on and increases the durability of the makeup too.

My Favourite - 30-07-2018 by

I have tried so many Primers - and always come back to this! It'a great for oily sensitive skin. I use Mineral Foundation and it keeps it on all day long.

Foolproof - 30-07-2018 by

I have used this primer for about 6 years now and it doesn't fail me. I have generally oily skin and this doesn't add any unwanted residue to my skin. It absorbs well and my makeup glides on. I am also a freelance makeup artist and I have used this primer on clients for years. It works so well with all skin types especially sensitive skin and I always get great feedback that the bridal makeup does not move!

Favourite Primer - 25-07-2018 by

This primer is GREAT. I have dry skin and this really helps to create the perfect base for my foundation. Without it, my skin seems to look flaky. I have tried other primers, but found this one to be the best for me.

Great primer - 20-07-2018 by

This is definitely a wonderful product. It is super hydrating and plumps up the skin. Make up applies really well after and stays all day. No complaints. Highly recommend.

Best primer - 17-07-2018 by

Best primer by far. My makeup lasts longer and looks just like it's been applied even at the end of the day.

Holy Grail - 12-07-2018 by

Primer i have used since i was 18 after trying many other primers i keep going back to this! Keeps my makeup on all day still looking as fresh as if does when i apply in the morning!

Pricey, but worth it. - 12-07-2018 by

These are super hydrating and smooth also it doesn't take long for it to sink into the skin. love it. :)

Holy Grail Primer - 11-07-2018 by

I absolutely love this primer! It is perfect under every foundation I have tried to far.
I also use it to fix up any makeup mistakes with a cotton tip instead of makeup remover as it doesn’t leave an oily residue.
It does not clog pores at all but helps make up to stay on all day and gives a great base.
It is extremely hydrating and the camomile is very soothing to dry or sensitive skin.

Amazing - 10-07-2018 by

This the first primer I ever bought and if I had to pick just one primer in my life this would be it. It is so hydrating, it has never affected my sensitive skin, makes a great base for foundation to glide on and smells amazing.

Hydrating primer - 05-07-2018 by

Nice primer that hydrates and helps my makeup apply nicely!

Hydrating - 03-07-2018 by

This was my first ever high-end primer and I still love it 5 years later. It's hydrating without being greasy and my makeup glides on over the top. It's got a lovely fresh scent and a little goes a long way. One bottle lasts me well over a year of daily use. A must have for normal-dryer skin types.

Value for money - 25-06-2018 by

hydrating primer that makes my makeup glide on smoothly and evenly. Helps a light application of day time makeup last all day. Although not the best for a long night out

This product soaks into skin almost instantly - 21-06-2018 by

I have found with other primers that it takes a while to soak into skin before you can start applying a foundation. This product soaks into skin immediately leaving the skin feeling hydrated.

Amazing primer!!! - 19-06-2018 by

I would not use anything use! This product is smooth, easy to apply and adds moisture to your skin! Smells amazing too. I have quite sensitive skin and it works amazing with no reaction. You only need a small amount so it lasts a long time! So good.

Never use anything ever again - 19-06-2018 by

Best primer on the market. Feels refreshing and lightweight.

Never use anything ever again - 18-06-2018 by

Best primer on the market. Feels refreshing and lightweight.

LOVE this product - 11-06-2018 by

this product is amazing, i honestly dont know why i never used a primer before, my makeup stays on all day and my skin looks amazing

Smells amazing - 05-06-2018 by

This is literally my favourite primer ever, its so calming and moisturising on the skin and it smells amazing! Love it to pieces, would recommend to everyone

The best primer I've used - 02-06-2018 by

Smooth, easy to use, smells fantastic.

Fabulous Primer. - 27-05-2018 by

I've used several primers and none suit my super sensitive pale skin as well as this. I have no reaction to this and find my makeup goes on more easily and smoothly and lasts better than it does with any other primer I've used. It's very easy to apply, comfortable and makes a perfect base for any makeup.

Best primer - 21-05-2018 by

This primer is the best I’ve used keeps my foundation on day and makes it look better

Ok primer - 19-05-2018 by

This primer is good however not amazing like some of the others I use eg. Laura Mercier. This is ok when I am having good skin days and during summer however doesn't work for me when my skin is playing up

obsessed - 19-05-2018 by

I received a sample of this product and my skin and make up were flawlessss on the days I used it. I'm super sad its currently out of my budget but I've never used a better primer.

Fabulous! - 18-05-2018 by

I got this primer when I got my makeup done at Napoleon and have repurchased it multiple times! It does exactly what it says it does - and it's so good for filling my enlarged pores!

Fantastic primer - 14-05-2018 by

This is a fantastic primer! It is so smooth and it smells fantastic! I use it under the camera perfect powder and it helps to keep it on my skin!

Best Ever Primer! - 17-04-2018 by

I am a huge fan of this primer - it is of very high quality and it shows from making my foundation last all day long! It helps to make my foundation look dewy and fresh.

YES YES YES - 11-04-2018 by

This primer does what it says it should. It also blurs out my imperfections by almost 'shadowing' them and it doesn't budge when I put foundation over the top. Great packaging for when I travel also!! win win x

Long time fan - 03-04-2018 by

I have been using this primer for around ten years. As far as I'm concerned, it is the best. It does what it is supposed to do without flaring up my sensitive skin. Love it.

Really good primer - 20-02-2018 by

This is literally gold! It has silicones in it, but it doesn't feel too silicon-y if you know what I mean. It has more of a moisturising feel to it, yet keeps foundation on all day!

Best primer I have used! - 16-02-2018 by

Definitely, hands down, the best primer I have ever used! It is so soft, my make up guides on smoothly and last all day. The light fragrance is beautiful (compared to silicon primers) and doesn’t not make my skin oily or blocked. It only takes a pea sized amount for full cover, with all day effects. I’m so glad I found this primer, I will definitely be purchasing this again (when it runs out!)

silky smooth - 07-12-2017 by

I love how this glides onto my skin, spreads so easily. It feels light and has a nice slight fragrance. My makeup looks so much smoother and nicer with this primer on. It helps my makeup last all day and doesn't dry me out- literally so hydrating. In love with this primer!

Keep coming back - 13-11-2017 by

I love this primer. You can use it sparingly but still get the results, it has a lovely scent and is very moisturising. Despite using many primers it is still my absolute favourite. It has worked with every foundation I've ever tried with it and is always my first step for a flawless base. It is on the pricier side but I am onto my 4th tube and still loving it!

Pricey but it works - 13-11-2017 by

I have tried SO many different primers but come back to this. Is pricey (in line with other high end primers) but it works.

Keep returning to this product. - 31-10-2017 by

Glides on to the skin and feels fresh. I have sensitive mature skin (nearly 50, yikes) and I keep returning to this product. Doesn't dissapoint.

Light weight but a little goes a long way - 30-06-2017 by

I was recently introduced to this primer and as someone who generally prefers silicone based primers I was impressed. This primer goes on light but a little goes a long way. It feels more like a moisturiser and on days when I am pressed for time I skip my moisturiser and just apply this primer under my foundation, make looks good all day.

Best Primer - 24-05-2017 by

This is honestly my favourite make up product, the smell and actual texture of this product is so beautiful and very luxurious. Its so smooth on the face and allows for an even application of foundation, I am prone to breaking out and have an oily t-zone how ever this product prevents me from breaking out as it creates a barrier from the make up and skin (what primers are supposed to do) it also makes my make up stay on all day even with my oily t-zone, it is quite dewy but that's the finish I love!

New favourite primer - 11-04-2017 by

I recently tried out this primer for the first time, and I'm actually really impressed. I'm not usually wowed by primers, but I've noticed the staying power of my makeup has improved since using this product. In saying that, I do use Clarins Beauty Flash Balm over the top of it before foundation, and Laura Mercier's Radiance Primer mixed with my foundation, so there's a few priming products thrown in there, but I'd recommend Auto Pilot, and I'll buy it again!

Always come back to this product! - 15-06-2015 by

Whilst the gold packaging is really sweet (I'm a huge fan of bling), the actual product inside is everything its hyped up to be. I borrowed a friends once and immediately went to buy my own. While its not the best option out there to hide pores, make up really glides on and lasts all day. Its not drying, doesn't make your skin break out in spots, and mixes easily with foundation if you're looking for a more sheer look. I love this product and have always returned to it after using other primers

Make up feels yuck without it! - 14-09-2014 by

When I'm rushing around in the morning, there have been a couple of times I have forgotten to put my Napoleon Perdis Gold Auto Piilot Primer on.... I soon realise though. When I start to put my make up on, my face just feels dry and yuck! (And that is after I've already put moisturiser on!) When I put make up on AFTER my awesome Gold saviour, my make up goes on silky smooth and my face feels fabulous! I just won't wear make up now without it. If I don't have time to do the whole face make up thang, I'll still put my Gold Primer on by itself to smooth out my skin. Trust me, when you try it, you will realise your money has been well spent! As good ol' Molly Meldrum says, 'Do yourself a favour' give this one a go!

Love it - 03-09-2014 by

So soft and smooth. Definitely helps keeps my make up on longer

Lovely feel - 23-08-2014 by

Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer is a great primer to use. It has a lovely feel to it and absorbs into skin nicely.

Some good features - 03-03-2014 by

I bought this product to try because it was getting so many rave reviews here. It definitely feels like it's helping me in some areas, but not so much in others. I have oily skin, particularly on my nose.

Pros: holds my foundation in place very well; I like the light scent; a little bit goes a long way; breakouts seem to have decreased during use.
Cons: does nothing for my pores - my foundation sinks straight into them; does not help much with oil control.

Overall I think this is a good product, but it isn't working as well as I would have liked for my skin type. Happy shopping everyone!

Best! - 31-12-2013 by

I love primers. I have tried one heck of a lot of them too: professional ones, mineral ones, ones from Japanese and Korean companies, cheapie ones, ridiculously expensive ones (I maaaaay have a bit of a problem)... But this is the only one I have ever used up, and - GASP! - bought a back-up for.

So here's what I like in a face primer:

- not heavy on the silicones (and come on, people have literally found that a dupe for certain famous primers are anti-chafing creams and lubricants.... No thanks.)
- scentless/very light fragrance
- increases the wear time of my make-up
- skincare benefits
- must feel moisturising
- must be undetectable
- convenient, hygienic packaging
- makes my foundation glide on beautifully
- does not break me out or make my sensitive skin uncomfortable

... and hey guess what, this primer actually is all that. This primer is a little bit scented (it's a very pleasant scent and not overpowering - and it fades quickly).
If you're after something to help with extremely oily skin I would recommend something more mattifying, but for most skin types this should be perfect.

One tube will last you longer than a year, even with daily use - it's fabulous!

Very good a must try Primer ! - 07-10-2013 by

A little goes a long way. Used to use MAC but this lasts longer, therefore better value for money. It also makes my make up really easy to apply. I would highly recommend this product!

great product - 07-10-2013 by

I've been using it under foundation for years. Good product. Helps makeup stay on and provides good hydration for mature skin. Helps stop makeup from sinking into lines.

My favourite product - 10-09-2013 by

Have used this product for a long time. Last me about 1 year and I use it almost every day. It allows my foundation to stay on all day.

love it - 18-08-2013 by

Really like this product as it makes my foundation go further and stay on longer., you only need a small amount also it it is good value.

I love it - 14-08-2013 by

Have used this for a while now and love it so will stick to it. Just as the foundation does!!!

Luxe feel without the luxe price tag - 03-03-2013 by

This primer feels amazing and luxurious and is the perfect base for any foundation. It's also wonderful to use alone on those days you don't feel like wearing makeup as it keeps your skin matte but really well hydrated

love love love this product - 04-12-2012 by

This is actually my second bottle. First one lasted me almost 12 months, using almost daily! Great value for money. Makes the foundation last at least twice as long...smoother longer lasting finish to the foundation that goes on over the top. Highly recommend! Cannot live without!

Great - 13-08-2012 by

Love the new gold packaging. This is the only primer i use. I love it. gives great results.
