This has been the absolute best primer I have used. First purchased 6 years ago and it improved my skin so much which I did not expect! over time I have tried to find something a bit cheaper but nothing comes close to this primer and is well worth the price! I have very sensitive skin and asthma and have never had an issue with this, it has a very faint scent which is lovely

Not the best :(
I used this for so many years and always found it just okay. Now that I've tried a dozen other brands I'll never go back. My skin is super oily and this one just doesn't cut it for me

Cult fave with good reason!I purchased this in an amazing value set over Christmas and remembered why I loved this primer growing up! It’s one of the originals and the best. Helps makeup glide on beautifully and works so well with my dehydrated skin. Hides those fine lines and keeps my makeup looking lovely all day!
NiceNice primer I really like it one of the best !
Wasn’t for meI found this very greasy and siliconey feeling on my skin. Felt lik my foundation was sliding all around with this
GoldIts light and non oily and helps keep my makeup on.This is such a great primer and I have been using it for a few years now.
ClassicA cult fave for a reason. So moisturising and has that classic scent!
Love Love LoveI love using this primer. I use it after I've applied Napoleon Perdis Complex Skin Renewal Serum which makes my skin feel wonderful and hydrated. My foundation lasts longer when I'm using the primer.
Must haveHydrating, smoothing and long lasting. It's the perfect makeup base!
Cult product!There's a reason this is a cult product. It's a great staple primer and suited to most skin types. It's hydrating, somewhat smoothing and makes makeup last longer. You can't go wrong with this primer!
Amazing!Foundation lasts much longer with this primer. its so hydrating and makes skin soft and smooth.
My holy grail!I'm confident I have tried nearly every primer under the sun, and this is the only one I keep coming back to. I have dry to normal skin - this moisturises it perfectly and keeps my make-up looking tip top all day. The scent is beautiful too but not overpowering. I recommend this to everyone when they ask me what primer to buy.
Beautiful!I was trying to find a primer and recommended by a friend. Goes on really smooth and stays put all day. Really happy with this product.
Nice primerIt has a good scent and it's a light primer so that can be absorbed very quickly. After using it, the makeup can last more time on face without messy, especially in the hot days.
Tip of the day!Omgoodness! This product is one for every makeup lover! Not only is this the most perfect primer - primes but also makes your skin feel incredible but.... this fixes ANY makeup mishap without having to remove and reapply - I PROMISE!!! Accidenrly sneeze while putting on mascara? No worries, apply this serum to a cotton bud and gently remove!!! Totally worth the price and you will never go back to ...Read More
HydratingSo hydrating and makes skin smooth. Foundation lasts longer.
Perfection!I fell in love with this primer the instant I used it. It is the perfect base, allowing your makeup to apply flawlessly. It is lightweight, hydrates but doesn't leave my skin feeling oily and honestly just feels fresh. This was the first primer I ever tried and truth be told, it's still my favourite!
Best primer!I have been using this primer for years now and its my go to! It is light on your skin and keeps your hydrated, whilst also keeping your make up on too. Wonderful!
consistency is amazingthis is such a great primer ive been using it for such a long time, i always purchase the new primers to try them out and i always find myself reaching for this one. its lightweight in consistency, and always drys down without leaving a layer on the skin, leaves the skin feeling like velvet
Gold level PrimerThis is such a great primer and I can see why its one of the best sellers with Napoleon! Its light and non oily and helps keep my makeup on.
Not the best :(I used this for so many years and always found it just okay. Now that I've tried a dozen other brands I'll never go back. My skin is super oily and this one just doesn't cut it for me
All time favourite!!I always come back to this, ever since I use to get my makeup done when I was 16 at Napoleon (lol). It smells divine and gives your skin such a FRESH feeling! Sooooo hydrating and the perfect base for makeup. I’ve tried a loooooot of primers but nothing compares.
A bit overratedThis feels lovely and refreshing, smells great, nice and moisturizing etc but I think it is a bit overrated and didn't live up to the hype for me personally. Didn't assist that much with foundation wear and definitely think there is better out there for the price.
good primerthis primer is good it does create a nice base for my makeup however I have very sensitive skin and I break out very easily so unfortunately this primer broke me out
Best primer.My foundation glides on and looks fresh, dewy and radiant. My makeup lasts all day. Honestly this stuff is amazing. Can't live without it.
Glowing skinHave bought this primer a few times now & it doesn’t disappoint. Always makes my skin feel plump & fresh under my makeup. Definitely recommend!
affordable price and not-bad performanceI was looking for a primer that is suitable for acne-prone and dry-combination skin type, and recommended by a lovely sale assistant. This is my first-try on this brand. i'm about to use it for days and come back to review again.
However, up until now, it is working well
affordable price and not-bad performanceThis is my first-try, and also the first time i heard about this brand. I was trying to find a primer and recommended by a sale assistant. This little staff was described as a good choice for acne-prone and dry combination skin type. I'm about to use it for days to check out how it works
The one and only.I have been using this for many years and it is just brilliant on my sensitive skin.
Calming and so light..the perfect base for your makeup.
Cool and calmingThis primer smells great and is really refreshing and cool and calming on the skin especially the morning but I personally think the price is way overrated. I’ve used other primers that are the same or better quality that are half the price.
The bestI have used this primer for over 5 years and it is still my holy grail. I have tried and used other primers but this is the one and only primer that I always come back to. It is hydrating, feels nice on the skin and smells divine.
GreatThis is a nice primer that works with my dry skin. My makeup lasts all day with this
Great primer!This is a great light weight primer. I use it daily after moisturising before applying any make up. It makes my make up easy to apply and leaves a flawless moisturised finish. It smells great and helps my make up last all day. I have been using this primer for years and would highly recommend to anyone!
GoodSmells and feels great
My go to primer!A beautiful lightweight formula that works to hydrate the skin prior to foundation application.
My skin is on the dry side and I find this to be just the right of hydration before applying any foundation. A staple in my makeup kit.
Lovely primerLovely primer that leaves my skin very soft and the perfect base for my makeup. My makeup seems to last all day when I use this primer
This primer has changed my lifeThis is the best primer I have ever tried. I have enlarged pores and this primer makes it look like I don't. I don't even bother putting foundation over my primer on the weekends as this primer does such a good job. Does not give a dewy look either and my skin feels amazing
Nice non-silicone primerThis is a nice non-silicone based primer which gives foundation a smooth base. I can't tell if it makes my foundation last longer, but it does make it feel a lot nicer going on.
Lovely light scent too.
BeautifulSuch a nice smell, feel and does a really nice job
best primer everthis is the best primer. I really love this product
SmoothingDefinitely gets that tacky but not sticky texture just right. Smooths fine lines, but not quite effective on pores. Very expensive for what it is
Holy grail primer!This has been my go to primer for years and for good reason! The quality is incredible and didn’t cause any breakouts or issues on my skin! Makes my makeup last so much longer too!
GreatI like wearing primers underneath foundation when my skin feels extra dry and this one gets the job done and my foundation glides beautifully
Pretty averagePretty similar to other primers nothing very special about it. For the price of this I expected something really good, I felt disappointed with this.
I moisturize before using this but cant seem to get it to work around my eye and between eyebrow area it just looks dry and my foundation doesn't stick.
It's good but..The coverage of this product is good but make sure you moisturise otherwise i found it made my skin look worse with dry skin patches. If you don't have dry skin this product would look amazing.
Napoleon primerOne of the best bits from the Napoleon line. Primes my skin to make it ready for foundation. Perfect amount of tackiness to grip my foundation. Foundation lasts a good amount of time with this on.
Favorite Primer Ever!This primer has been a favorite of mine for many years and still performs amazingly at keeping my make up in place all day long! It is easy to apply, it is a light cream formula and absorbs well until my skin. I apply it after putting on moisturiser, before foundation, for a flawless base!
hydratingThis is an old favourite. I found that this primer left my pores smoothed over so I could layer on my concealer and foundation easily without a thick or caked look
Amazing primer!The Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer felt hydrating on my skin, particularly during this cold, dry winter. It also did an excellent job of priming my skin so when I applied foundation, my pores were invisible. Great product!
Not the bestFor the price of this I expected something really good, I felt disappointed with this. It works that same as a $10 pharmacy primer. Wouldn’t repurchase
Best primer for dry skinThis primer makes any foundation look flawless, definitely the best primer I have used for my dry skin.
glides onmake sure you are well moisturised first, it glides on and once dried foundation goes on like a dream and stays there. great for oily T zones.
Fave!I lovee this primer so much. It is really refreshing and cooling on my skin and the texture and smell is soo lovely!
Favourite primerI love this primer so much! It glides on so smoothly and feels so nice on my skin. You also don't have to wait for the primer to dry as the foundation can be put directly over the top immediately if desired.
perfect for prepping your face for makeup!this primer is absolutely perfect! It goes on so easily, it makes all the makeup over the top look flawless and amazing! It gets rid of all appearance of pores, without clogging them and making me breakout. 100000% recommend
Beautiful primerThis primer is a great product that has been around forever. It's like a moisturiser and leaves the skin lovely, moisturised and dewy. It goes a long way too
GreatSuch a good primer! Very light weight on the skin and smells so good!
Yuck!I hate this primer. It makes my skin feel so greasy and yuck. Plus I hate the smell. Wouldn’t recommend
Best primerI love this primer it’s a go to for me! It gives a lovely dewy finish and is not drying at all. It makes my makeup go on so smoothly and helps with any dry patches. Even better, Napoleon is cruelty free. You can’t go wrong!
GreatGreat primer, makes foundation look flawless
Best primerThis primer is so good!
Makes my foundation look so much more natural and glides on beautifully . Love it
The original and best!I honestly can’t live without this primer. It feels so beautiful and lightweight on the skin, I have been using it for over 10 years and the difference it makes to the staying power of my makeup is truly incredible. You only need the tiniest amount, so a tube lasts me 6 months using every day.
One of the best!Super lightweight. Love this primer. Goes with any foundation. Creates a good barrier between the skin and foundation!
Part of a three step routineDefinitely need to make sure I have moistured well before, and then it does glide on with a dewy glow before I put my foundation on. I am not sure if I really need to use it daily, but its great when wanting to look my best for a special occasion or an evening out.
Expensive but Feels Great!For a primer, I feel this is on the steeper-side of the things, but it has a wonderful cooling effect and I really like how light it is, never leaving any stickiness on my face. Holds my make-up well though I'm not sure if it's my make up itself that I can give credit to the holding power, or the primer?
RecommendThis is my favourite primer out of a lot that I’ve used. It evens out my skin tone well and hiss my pores. So good to have
Smooths and controls oilGreat primer for controlling oils and creating a smooth and even base for makeup. Extends foundation wear time for me. Very pricey for a primer though.
Makes face feel yukMakes my face feel so greasy and oily. Really yuk primer. For the price there’s heaps better out there
SmoothIncredibly smooth and hides my pores.
porelessIncredible 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.
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! St...Read More
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
