I purchased the Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer, and the Auto Pilot Concealer Primer. Both are just a waste of my money. They take awhile to dry, and remain with an "oily" feeling all day. After about 3 hours of makeup use, the makeup eventually collects on my face into a blotchy mess. The under eye is by far the worst. I did my makeup this morning at 7:00am and it is now 4:00pm, and my under eyes are a shit show!
I think I'll end up just giving this stuff away to someone.
packaging does leak a little bit
- great under foundation coverage
- make-up will stay longer if not only put under foundation, but mixed with foundation
- great for touching up old make-up
-a little goes a long way (dont need much product)
-SOMTIMES i have dry skin and this product can be a little oily, so in those times it makes my face feel nice and soft
- can run a little when opened
- if ance skin, you may have to build product
- can be a little sticky on fingers if appling that way
recommend for someone who has combination skin and wants longer lasting makeup and a medium flawless base. (it will not be perfectly flawless but a bit smoother)
Tube lasts a year + just apply thin layer of primer to face before makeup application. Smells good feels good isn't too heavy. The new gold packaging Napoleon is using is stupid they use to come in a white squeeze tube (get one if they have them get one of them!) Gold one leaks everywhere.. :(
ANY DRUG STORE primer has EXACTLY same ingredients word for word as this primer and are a HEAP CHEAPER. Don't waste your money!
I was so happy when this came in the mail but when I started using it I easily regretted it. It's oily and makes my skin look extremely oily and sweaty! It made my makeup basically slide off during the day! It was way too expensive for something so awful, I wouldn't repurchase.
This product is a nice indulgence. It does do what it claims however I feel there are other alternatives which are far less expensive (australis). This product helps calm my skin prior to application and does make my foundation last throughout the day. It also has a lovely smell which makes me feel pampered! Its only downfall is the price so if you’re prepared to fork out the funds go for it.
I didn't enjoy this product. I found it difficult to blend it into my skin and to get a smooth, even finish. It is fast drying and I found it to have a clumpy and sticky consistency. Very dissappointing. I will not be purchasing this product again xoxo lamourdesoi
I found this primer very hard to blend in, which is something I haven't experienced with other primers. The scent is very pleasant and reminds me of Lancome's 'Tresor' perfume. Keeps my foundation on my skin all day. In saying that, I have used other primers in the past that are half the price of this and still manage to keep my foundation looking fresh all day. To sum it up, I do think that there are equivalent primers out there that will do the job for a fraction of the cost of this.
This product has a lovely smell and glides onto the skin well. Only a small amount is needed so a tube should last a pretty long time.
However, this product is expensive, and my sometimes sensitive skin had an mild allergic reaction with itchiness and redness. For this reason I would not buy it again.
First tried this as a sample, and then raced out to buy it the next week.
I find it soothing if my skin is irritated. I use it over my moisturiser.
My skin can get quite oily/shiny and I definitely think this helps my foundation last longer without needing touch-ups.
The smell is nice, and not overpowering.
