Great Primer - 10-01-2019 by

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.

Okay - 09-01-2019 by

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.

A very good primer - 02-01-2019 by

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!

Nice primer, does the job. - 31-12-2018 by

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 primer - 31-12-2018 by

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.

Beautiful smell - 31-12-2018 by

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.

Lovely, dewy - 28-12-2018 by

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.

Smells good - 20-12-2018 by

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

Very nice - 18-12-2018 by

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

Hydrating - 15-12-2018 by

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.

Nice primer - 13-12-2018 by

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.

The OG - 11-12-2018 by

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

Refreshing - 10-12-2018 by

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!

Must use - 05-12-2018 by

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

Amazing - 04-12-2018 by

This is an amazing primer, it is a holy grail.

AMAZING - 26-11-2018 by

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!

fantastic! - 20-11-2018 by

smooths on nicely, leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Sits well under foundation. Love this primer!

wish the bottle was larger but amazing - 19-11-2018 by

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

Refreshing - 19-11-2018 by

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.

Perfect Primer - 16-11-2018 by

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.

Liquid gold! - 13-11-2018 by

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 purchase - 13-11-2018 by

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.

Smells great - 05-11-2018 by

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

Nice primer - 05-11-2018 by

This is such a nice primer - it makes your skin feel super hydrated

Life changer - 01-11-2018 by

One of the best primers on the market that keeps my makeup in place all evening.

Auto Pilot is awesome! - 26-10-2018 by

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 makeup - 25-10-2018 by

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.

Use it every day - 22-10-2018 by

I don’t put on make up without using this first

Use it every day - 22-10-2018 by

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

best primer - 19-10-2018 by

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.

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

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.
