This primer has changed my life


This 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

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.

  2. Nice non-silicone primer


    This 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.
  3. Beautiful


    Such a nice smell, feel and does a really nice job
  4. best primer ever


    this is the best primer. I really love this product
  5. Smoothing


    Definitely gets that tacky but not sticky texture just right. Smooths fine lines, but not quite effective on pores. Very expensive for what it is
  6. 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!
  7. Great


    I like wearing primers underneath foundation when my skin feels extra dry and this one gets the job done and my foundation glides beautifully
  8. Pretty average


    Pretty 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.

  10. Napoleon primer


    One 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.
  11. 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!
  12. hydrating


    This 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
  13. 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!
  14. Not the best


    For 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
  15. Best primer for dry skin


    This primer makes any foundation look flawless, definitely the best primer I have used for my dry skin.
  16. glides on


    make 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.
  17. Fave!


    I lovee this primer so much. It is really refreshing and cooling on my skin and the texture and smell is soo lovely!
  18. Favourite primer


    I 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.
  19. 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
  20. Beautiful primer


    This 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
  21. Great


    Such a good primer! Very light weight on the skin and smells so good!
  22. Yuck!


    I hate this primer. It makes my skin feel so greasy and yuck. Plus I hate the smell. Wouldn’t recommend
  23. Best primer


    I 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!
  24. Best primer


    This primer is so good!
    Makes my foundation look so much more natural and glides on beautifully . Love it
  25. 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.
  26. One of the best!


    Super lightweight. Love this primer. Goes with any foundation. Creates a good barrier between the skin and foundation!
  27. Part of a three step routine


    Definitely 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.
  28. 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?
  29. Recommend


    This 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
  30. Smooths and controls oil


    Great 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.
  31. Makes face feel yuk


    Makes my face feel so greasy and oily. Really yuk primer. For the price there’s heaps better out there
  32. poreless


    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.
  33. Love this primer - it stands the test of time


    One 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.
  34. An absolute beauty


    I 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!
  35. Good primer but expensive


    This 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.
  36. must have


    It 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.
  37. Nice primer


    I 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
  38. Good but doesn’t compete with some


    I 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!
  39. Nice and light


    This 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.
  40. NP Primer


    This 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!
  41. Great for the price


    This 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.
  42. best primer


    have 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.
  43. Recommended by a MUA


    This 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!
  44. 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.
  45. Great primer


    I 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.
  46. 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!
  47. So light!


    Such a good primer!
    Really light weight and lasts a long time!
  48. It's good but not worth it


    Simply put, there are far better primers that are way more competitively priced.
  49. nice texture


    This 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.
  50. Love it


    My favourite primer!!! So hydrating and leaves make up lasting all day!
  51. Beautiful primer


    I 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
  52. 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 .
  53. The original and the best


    The 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.
  54. Amazing for longevity


    I 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.
  55. Good for dry skin but not oily


    I 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.
  56. Great Primer but over priced


    I 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.
  57. lightweight but great coverage


    This 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
  58. nice texture, but overpriced


    Love 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.
  59. The Best Primer


    This 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.
  60. Great


    Product is light weight and super easy to apply. My makeup lasts all day long and the texture of my skin looks so much smoother.
  61. Love this


    Have used this for several years and it is great pre make up.
  62. Love


    This 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
  63. Good hydrating base


    I 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.
  64. Great but also overrated


    I 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.
  65. 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
  66. Hydrating


    I 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.
  67. Yes yes yes


    If you need a primer, this is the one. Best one i've tried, super pleasant scent and helped makeup stay put all day
  68. Great Primer


    I'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.
  69. Okay


    I'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.
  70. A very good primer


    This 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!
  71. 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.
  72. Fantastic primer


    Can 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.
  73. Beautiful smell


    I'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.
  74. Lovely, dewy


    Great 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.
  75. Smells good


    Smells really nice and feels refreshing on the skin. Tends to make my makeup go a little oily though.
  76. Very nice


    Good 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
  77. Hydrating


    I 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.
  78. Nice primer


    Nice 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.
  79. The OG


    Cult classic for a reason. Lovely primer, easy to apply, helps your makeup apply beautifully and has a lovely light texture. Always repurchasing.
  80. Refreshing


    Really 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!
  81. Must use


    I use this religiously, as it makes my makeup look flawless, I would highly recommend this product to anyone.


    Best 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!
  83. fantastic!


    smooths on nicely, leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Sits well under foundation. Love this primer!
  84. wish the bottle was larger but amazing


    this 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
  85. Refreshing


    I'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.
  86. Perfect Primer


    Does 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.
  87. 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!
  88. very happy with purchase


    I 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.
  89. Smells great


    Has a really lovely smell and feels nice and cool when applied. Very refreshing primer and dries quickly. My makeup always goes on smooth.
  90. Nice primer

    Kylie Q

    This is such a nice primer - it makes your skin feel super hydrated
  91. Life changer


    One of the best primers on the market that keeps my makeup in place all evening.
  92. 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!
  93. Great base for makeup


    This 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.
  94. Use it every day


    I don’t put on make up without using this first
  95. Use it every day


    Use this before make up application . Not to prime is a crime
  96. best primer


    Hands 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.
