    Okay

    Not great as a primer but wonderful as a face lotion. It cleared up my skin, kept it hydrated and helped my primer go on easily. Not worth the money as a primer but as a lotion it's okay. — 5 years, 4 months ago

    Good, Not Great

    I have combination skin and it's hydrating enough that I skip the moisturizer and just use the primer sometimes. It's a bit too liquidy for my taste. I have been spoiled by smashbox primer. Also, I do not like that it doesn't provide any spf protection. It's pretty expensive too. I use mineral loose powder and this primer works OK - it doesn't really do its job of allowing the makeup to glide on a...read moret the portions of my face where I have big pores (nose area). If you like this texture (watery/liquidy) primer, I would say use the MAC Prep + Prime. It works better and provides spf protection. This primer has good packaging though. The tube is easy to store since it has a flat bottom and won't roll around and easy to use (just squeeze!) — 5 years, 10 months ago

    Not to Prime is a Crime!

    On the back of this box the first thing I noticed in BIG print, "Not to Prime is a Crime!!", which is a quote from Napoleon Perdis. He is speaking of course to his product Auto Pilot, which is a pre-foundation skin primer. Chamomile, Yarrow extract and Vitamin E help make up this specially blended primer. It instantly hydrates the skin while smoothing it out, making a perfect canvas for...read more which to apply your makeup. This primer is really unlike any other that I have used before. It has very little dimethicone to it, so it is not all slippery like most silicone based makeup primers. It is a creamy-white tinted lotion, with a very thin consistency. It has a pleasant smell, but I cannot put my finger on what the scent actually is. Fragrance is listed as an ingredient so I know it is not just the ingredients giving the Auto Pilot this fresh scent, but like I said, I cannot come up with a very good description of it. Let's just say it is not offensive at all and this primer will not interfere with any other scented products you may (or may not) use. One thing this primer does do, in a very good way, is make my makeup glide over the surface much better than before. I swear I have to use less foundation with it as well. And having my makeup last all day in the Summer is not an easy task, but Auto Pilot has definitely helped. The tube runs $39 and you have to be careful not to squeeze out too much product or it will go to waste. A little drop is all you need to smooth over the entire face and neck - I like the way it makes my neck look more matte and even toned - so I think the price is not bad. You can pick this up at Sephora or right on the Napoleon Perdis site, where you can look for more targeted Auto Pilot products too. I would say it would be a crime not to try this primer, especially if you are not a regular user of primers. It will definitely make a believer out of you. — 6 years ago

    Excellent

    I have to say that I was sceptical about this product, but it absolutely delivered. Not greasy at all and my makeup stayed in place all day — 6 years, 1 month ago

    Will Buy Again

    Smells great, feels cool and refreshing on skin. I've never used primer before, and my makeup definitely went on smoother with this product than without it. However, it didn't work great around my eyes. I would recommend buying a separate primer for your eye area. — 6 years, 4 months ago

    by Rockhopper

    The most lightweight of all the primers I've tried, but that's not necessarily a good thing for me. Doesn't do a whole lot, there's better out there. — 6 years, 5 months ago

    amazing

    I love this primer!! I got a sample from Sephora with my points and I intend to buy a full size of it. It feels great on my skin and the smell is so nice. Definitely worth the money to buy. — 6 years, 5 months ago

    Didn't Work For Me

    Smells nice and I love the packaging, but this did nothing in terms of priming my skin. Luckily I only had a sample of it. — 6 years, 8 months ago
