Incredible for minimising pores. Just as good as hourglass’ primer, and doesn’t irritate skin. Also works super well if you ‘dab’ it over eyelids (let it dry for a good five minutes) before loose eyeshadows.

I have used this primer and napoleon my entire late teen years and stuck with it. But have since found many better products. Since finally trying others I have realized that this is a bit overrated and expensive for what it is (like many of the napoleon products). I have now moved on to the bobbi brown and REN primers which are pricey but work so much nicer.

Love this primer - it stands the test of timeOne of those products I've used since I was a teenager that I always come back to - it creates a lovely smooth base and is a good primer. It does last a long time for the price too.
AmazingThis primer is Amazing so smooth on the skin.
An absolute beautyI just love this primer and I have been using it for many years. It gives me a smooth and perfect base for any type of foundation and really keeps my skin hydrated. It's well worth the price and it lasts forever!
Good primer but expensiveThis primer is good but probably not worth the price. I was looking for one with bit of a shimmer/glow which this doesn’t have. Will use the tube though as it works ok and try another brand next time.
must haveIt makes such a difference to how my foundation goes on and how it lasts through the day. I hate feeling foundation or layers of product on my skin and this always feels so fresh and clean. Totally love it ... would recommend without hesitation.

Nice primerI liked this primer and I have tried alot.It gave my skin a nice glow and smoothed my skin ready for makeup.Its great that it had skincare benefits and I'd a good size
Good but doesn’t compete with someI do think this is nice, however I have used primers that do this and cost a fraction of the price. Decent but don’t think I would splurge quite so much on a primer again!
Nice and lightThis is a light-feeling primer, doesn’t feel greasy or thick at all (which I like). It doesn’t do a lot in terms of smoothing, but I haven’t broken out from using it so that’s a plus! I have combination skin, prone to breakouts.
NP PrimerThis is hands down my favorite primer ever it’s something i couldn’t live without! I’ve recently tried out other brands and went straight back to this and nothing compares I’ve used this primer for 10 years The camomile and vitamin E are so hydrating 100% recommend it!
Great for the priceThis is a primer I often have in rotation (alongside Hourglass). It's fantastic. Can sometimes feel a bit "sticky" but it settles in to the skin quite well after a few seconds. Great to have as an everyday primer.
best primerhave been using this primer for around 4-5 years and i can’t use anything else. it works so well and doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. i naturally have oily skin and this helps a lot when applying my foundation which is also by napoleon. i don’t get sweaty in my T section like i used to when i used other products.
Recommended by a MUAThis primer was recommended by a make-up artist who did my wedding makeup. Didn’t need any touch ups that day! Have used this since!
The best primer I have ever used!I have tried many different primers but I always come back to Autopilot. I use a serum and sunscreen underneath and it always leaves my skin beautifully smooth and my foundation stays even all day. Highly recommended.
Great primerI received this as a sample with my Adore Beauty order. It is a great primer....very hydrating and good at helping makeup stay all day.
Love it!An amazing primer which I have been using for years - it gives me flawless foundation application and make up that stays in place all day and well into the night. It is a creamy formula with high quality ingredients. It gives my make up a dewy finish, which I love!
So light!Such a good primer!
Really light weight and lasts a long time!
It's good but not worth itSimply put, there are far better primers that are way more competitively priced.
nice textureThis primer is light and soft to use, and my (other brand) foundation lasted well all day. I took off a point because I don't like the smell, and would prefer it had spf.
Love itMy favourite primer!!! So hydrating and leaves make up lasting all day!
Beautiful primerI have been using this primer for years and absolutely love it!
I have normal to oily skin. This primer is hydrating and keeps my foundation in place all day. It also has a really nice fresh smell. Would highly recommend this to anyone
Beautiful primer!This primer smells divine and brings back memories of my early 20s when I used to wear it daily. I received a sample of this and loved using it. As much as I love this and it makes makeup go on smoothly, my skin is just a bit too wrinkly now for it to be my go to primer. I need one that addresses discolouration and fine lines, but if your skin is in good condition then this could be it for you! Still lovely to use and would recommend .
The original and the bestThe original and the best, I trust this primer and it delivers every time, it ensures smooth makeup application every time and I find a tube does go a long way.
Amazing for longevityI love this primer. Goes I smoothly, isn’t too thick or thin, small amount needed. It provides the softest, smoothest base for foundation. I use it under makeup for special events and always find 8+ hours in the sun later that my makeup is perfect. Can’t rate this highly enough.
Good for dry skin but not oilyI think this product is a little over hyped. I have used it for the past few years and sometimes it feels a little on the oily side but its very refreshing and smells so great. It is expensive for what it is though - ive since moved on to REN primer which works so much better for me.
Great Primer but over pricedI love a good primer, and this one is excellent, I just find that Primer is so often overpriced for what it is. After purchasing the silicone primer by The Ordinary, I've found it hard to go back and purchase this one.
lightweight but great coverageThis is the best primer I've used. It's lightweight and a little goes a long way. It's not heavy and thick like some and allows great application of your makeup over the top without leaving it greasy looking. Definitely recommend it
nice texture, but overpricedLove the packaging - it looks and feels really nice. The price point is a little extravagant too, unfortunately! I do think it's possible to get a good primer that's similar, at a pharmacy instead.
It's a great primer, and mattifies and evens out my skin before I go in with foundation. I also wear this without foundation over the top as well, as it gives a nice even surface.
The Best PrimerThis was the very first pre foundation primer I ever used needless to say nothing else really compares.
Helps in the overall appearance and staying power of your foundation. Just love this product. Have often purchased it as a gift to my friends.
GreatProduct is light weight and super easy to apply. My makeup lasts all day long and the texture of my skin looks so much smoother.
Love thisHave used this for several years and it is great pre make up.
LoveThis is my favourite primer I’ve tried a few others but this by far makes my skin feel the freshest and last long, I have combination oily skin but it’s still light
Good hydrating baseI found this primer kept my skin looking and feeling hydrated and smoothed out the appearance of lines and pores well. I would possibly re-purchase again, but second to Estee Lauder's illuminating primer.
Great but also overratedI do like this primer - its really hydrating and feels great to apply on the skin. I cant fault it in that way but there are better ones out there like the Face Base by Bobbi Brown primer that work a lot better. I think if this was cheaper it would be worth the price. Little overrated I think.
Not my type!This primer, is okay! I’d use it just to refresh my face. Wouldn’t put it on with makeup as I didnt think it made my foundation last longer wear
HydratingI used to love this primer - its hydrating and moisturising and smells amazing when applied. Has a cool feeling to it. But it does tend to make my skin go more on the oily side after foundation sometimes - so I personally have started using the Bobbi Brown face base and REN primers.
Yes yes yesIf you need a primer, this is the one. Best one i've tried, super pleasant scent and helped makeup stay put all day
Great PrimerI've used this primer for a few years now, I can't bring myself to buying another brand. Good for everyday use as it's light-weight and really hydrates my skin.
OkayI've used this foundation primer for quite a few years and its a very refreshing light primer. Smells really good. I do find it can make my skin oily by the end of the day and I have since found cheaper primers that work just as well.
A very good primerThis was probably the first primer I ever purchased but for some reason strayed from it over the past years... recently I was shopping around for a new primer and stumbled across this one. I remember why I used it for so long now!!
The product goes such a long way and is perfect for applying under a powder foundation. Definitely recommend!
Nice primer, does the job.I have bought this primer a number of times and am always quite happy with the results. It smells nice and applies to the skin well. It is hydrating and not drying like some silicone primers can be. I am always cautious of areas of my face where foundation looks patchy or flakes off during the day and this primer seems to assist with minimising that.
Fantastic primerCan understand why this primer has been around for so long... not drying at all, feels beautiful on my skin and as I live in a humid climate has been a saviour making my foundation last the distance all day and evening.
Beautiful smellI've been using this product for a number of years - I'm far too lazy to apply primer for the everyday but when I'm going out or when I know I need to make the makeup last I do apply it - I'm not sure how much good it does in making the makeup stay but I do know that it does calm down my skin - it's lovely and cooling and smells great - so I'm not sure if I love the ritual of putting it on for an event or what the product does... but worth a look in - I've not found another primer that I like in comparison to this one.
Lovely, dewyGreat for a dewy finish! I use this with the napoleon stroke of genius foundation and it really helped my foundation stay on all day and stay dewy.
Smells goodSmells really nice and feels refreshing on the skin. Tends to make my makeup go a little oily though.
Very niceGood alternative to my $80 YSL primer.
This was great under my makeup and I’d buy it again, but I don’t think it’s my HG like the YSL top secrets one.
I have dry and sensitive skin and this was nice and soft, didn’t irritate me etc
HydratingI use this as my daily foundation primer and its very hydrating and feels cool on the skin. I dont tend to use it as an event or going out primer just because it does leave my skin a tad oily by the end of the day so I usually stick to using it day time only.
Nice primerNice and light-weight, hydrates the skin really well and not greasy at all. For my oily combo skin, I normally use a pore-filling primer on my T-Zone before using this primer all over. Great primer, smells great and really improves skin hydration before foundation.
The OGCult classic for a reason. Lovely primer, easy to apply, helps your makeup apply beautifully and has a lovely light texture. Always repurchasing.
RefreshingReally refreshing feeling primer. The size is pretty decent too. I do find that its best for forehead and cheeks and not so much nose and chin - but otherwise smells really lovely and feels the same!
Must useI use this religiously, as it makes my makeup look flawless, I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
AmazingThis is an amazing primer, it is a holy grail.
AMAZINGBest primer I've ever used, smells lovely and light, soaks in quickly and smooths out any dry patches. Not sure how it goes for those with very oily skin though!
fantastic!smooths on nicely, leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Sits well under foundation. Love this primer!
wish the bottle was larger but amazingthis glides on like absolute silk I LOOOVVVEE the texture and can't get enough of it, definitely worth the money and makes my makeup glide on like a dream
RefreshingI've been using this on and off for years. Really refreshing formula that goes on cool and smells amazing! I find I tend to use other primers around my nose and chin that work better for me and then use this on my forehead and cheeks. Always leaves my skin feeling really hydrated.
Perfect PrimerDoes such a great correcting job and really evens my skin tone so it's perfect applying foundation. Subtly illuminates without being too over-the-top.
Liquid gold!I have combination oily/dry skin and have found in the past that when I use foundation I don’t get very good coverage. This product solves that! It’s light and you don’t even feel like you have anything on. I found that using it helps me get even coverage that stays on all night!
very happy with purchaseI purchased this as it was not available in any stores where I live at the time of purchase. Now that it is unless adore beauty works out cheaper I will prob just buy from local shop. But I am very happy with the product goes on so smoothly and dries super fast. only need a small amount for complete coverage.Love it.
Smells greatHas a really lovely smell and feels nice and cool when applied. Very refreshing primer and dries quickly. My makeup always goes on smooth.
Nice primerThis is such a nice primer - it makes your skin feel super hydrated
Life changerOne of the best primers on the market that keeps my makeup in place all evening.
Auto Pilot is awesome!Such a great primer. You only need a tiny bit to do your whole face. It spreads evenly and quickly. Absorbs into the skin nicely. The scent is quite subtle and not too overpowering.
A great primer!
Great base for makeupThis was the first primer I ever used and I keep coming back to it. It’s a simple product that provides a great base for makeup application and definitely makes your makeup go on smoother and last longer. I have sensitive skin but never find I break out after using this. You only need a pea size each time and it spreads really evenly and easily. Skin feels fresher after applying.
Use it every dayI don’t put on make up without using this first
Use it every dayUse this before make up application . Not to prime is a crime
best primerHands down, the BEST primer I have ever used. I love a good primer but sometimes no matter how much moisturizer you use they can be drying, but this is perfect for my dry skin. I wish I would have tried it sooner, would definitely recommend.
perfect primermakes 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!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 PrimersCould 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.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 skinI 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 primerThis 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 primerI 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 GreatThis 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 ValueA small amount goes a long way with this primer.
I find that my foundation us flawless throughout the day and doesn't budge.
Must haveMust have for a perfect look and flawless foundation.
Very hydratingThis 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 skinHydrating 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!
AmazingI 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 skinThis primer made my sensitive skin break out. It felt good and looked great on though
Great primerLove 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 baseI 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 rounderAfter 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!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 primerThis 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 blendThis 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 primerOut 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!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 softReceived 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 perfectOne of my go to primers, worth the purchase.
Great ProductThis 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 wellI 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 primerI 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 GoldNot 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 productThis 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 bestI 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 FavouriteI 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.
FoolproofI 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!
