Bought this duty free after reading reviews, however for me isn't really worth the money although quite a nice product.

I got a sample of this about 10 months ago, never used it until lately. It doesn't fill any lines, leave this task to the fdn. Although it has gold speckles, it does not show up glittery. What I love is the moisturizing effect a small dab gives me. The skin is comfortable without any tight feeling an hour later. If possible, give it a little time to sink in before the fdn routine.
For $200 a jar, I doubt if I will give in to that.
EDIT : I gave in & bought a jar, no regret.

I have raised my rating to a 4 - and it verges on a 5.
This primer is worth the money for one reason (for me) - it is the only product I have used that truly minimises pores - in an extreme way. I will repurchase for that reason. Also because I am using it for this purpose I only need to apply it to the areas where I have noticeable pores, therefore it will last a loooong time! I have found a new love for this product as I've started using Estee Lauder Double Wear, which I find exaggerates pores tremendously but has amazing staying power, so I'm combating this by relying on the Gold Illusion primer and I have found a winning combo.
I have lowered this again, to a 3 although it erases pores I have found a tm that does this and provides coverage - Chantecaille Just Skin, therefore I don't see the point in forking out $200 for a primer than has silicones and doesn't give me tint.
Wouldn't rebuy now that I've found chantecaille.

This was an impulse purchase at a duty free shop in Amsterdam and I'm SO HAPPY I gave into the impulse. Wow! LOVE IT! Only been using is a week but it's fantastic--gives total youth to this 53 year old's skin!

I must confess I like this product very much. I never used primers before... Correction: I never bought primers before. I only used samples (also rose illusion from La Prairie) and I always hated the feel on my skin. Too siliconey, too artifical plastic face. Only Sisley has a non siliconey primer, but I hated that product for other reasons (see review). Saying that this product has no silicon feeling would be a lie, but I realise that its a conditio sine qua non for a primer to have silicons in it. In the jar it looks like completely gold shimmer in a waxy texture. On the skin you get a NATURAL canvas skin which feels nice and (for a primer) weightless. Yeah! I use a long holding foundation above it and I can simply say the result is adorable: a subtle glowing perfect skin for hours and hours... This is a good product but it is too expensive for what it is. Please do not believe that this will erase signs of fatigue or what else. It gives you a nice feeling and adds length on your foundation but it is not a miracle. It's a bonus on your skin care- maquillage routine, not a must have. Nevertheless: I will buy again for its finish!

As far as primers are concerned, I'm naturally suspicious. If you need too much correction, then you're taking away from your natural beauty and not enhancing it. That said, I've tried a few, and this, hands down, is the ultimate in primers. For comparison purposes, I've previously tried lesser brands such as Smashbox, Clarins and L'Oreal, but have been disappointed. They all soften the skin, but that's where my experience has ended: lacking. However, with this primer/corrector, what you see is a heavily flecked, deeply shimmering gold product in the jar, yet it has a light texture, and blends to a completely subtle finish. The scent is light, and oddly dries down to something chemical-like. Still, it's not overly bothersome. This, in combination with my EL Futurist foundation in Porcelain is the ultimate in non-dressed, perfectly flawless skin for photographing for publicity and special events. Or, as an alternative, a stunning base for a layer of Givenchy's pressed powder. Does it truly fill in lines?. Response: Is the Moon green?. Rather, it plumps and blurs them. A fantastic skin conditioner and treat, worn alone, too. Just a few drops, and you're as good as you're going to get-comfortable and pampered within your own skin. Luscious. If I had a Lonely Planet version of a Skin Guide, this would be its headlining product. No question on that. Yes, it's expensive, but an investment, and a cult favorite, kinda like daytime equivalent to "Midnight Secret".

I love this product. I tried it at a La Prairie event and it was great -- gave my skin a smooth texture, reduced the appearance of small scars and even moisturized a bit (I get flaky around my chin). I bought it and it's been great ever since.
Here was an unexpected test: one night I went to the pizza shop and caught myself in the mirror and I thought "ew!" my skin appeared mottled and just not nice. So, the next time I was going to the same pizza shop, I applied my Gold Illusion Line Filler and, lo, I looked fine in their mirror -- natural, but smooth and even. All this from just a dab of Gold Illusion. Yes, it does reduce light nose-cheek area redness. (LP counter lady showed me that applying their powder on top of Gold Illusion further decreases redness.)
The price is not bad compared to other LP products, and it does give nice results immediately. I told the counter lady if it had SPF in it, it would be the perfect product.
(Next year I might even buy their very pricey gold serum thingie. I love LP products, but have to take it easy for the sake of my pocketbook. )

If you're over 40, just go buy this. This is the perfect primer if you're a little dry and loosing color in your skin. Don't let the gold appearance fool you. Used correctly (sparingly) no glitter or garish gold appers - only evenly toned skin ready for makeup (or not). I've had no breakouts, oiliness, etc. from this. Just a smooth velvety base that I absolutely adore.

This looks like a heavily gold-flecked product in the container, but I find the final sparkle finish to be non-obtrusive. Worked well on my sensitive skin, which has, in the past, without fail, always reacted to primers from other brands. Skin feels smooth and silky after application. I wear with or without liquid foundation. Or, underneath pressed powder, it's a dream-especially for special events w/flash photography. There's something about the scent that bothers me a little, though. It starts off as pleasant, but then devolves into something a little less appealing. But, I'll forgive it that, for it gives me such a flawless and effortless finish. Love it!.

As far as primers go, this is my favorite! I have tried many primers and all of them have annoyed my skin. This one does not bother my supersensitive skin. It does not feel heavy. It's light. A little goes a LONG way. The little gold flecks are not overwhelming, even on my fair pink undertoned skin. The product works well. It gives a gorgeous finish. I say if you can only have one primer: try this one! It's worth it.

I just picked up this item at Saks this weekend.
I LOVE it.
My skin is dry and reddish , discolored. My fave SA told me that i may not like the glitter, but I assured her that I had read some reviews about how wonderful it is.
I have worn this under both liquid and powder foundation(LaMer)
My skin looks GREAT with this. I love the look of powder foundation, but usually can't wear it, just settles in every pore, that isn't even large.
And the Lamer is more moisturizing that any other powder foundatin.
But this just makes it even better.
I was able to buy it w/the F&F discount so that saved me a few dollars.
This primer is not heavy feeling the glitter doesn't show thru my foundation, and a little does go along way.
I could see this being worn alone, in the summer if it a casual day and I feel that I don't need any additional foundation.
I will want to see how long it lasts before I decide to buy it again.But so many primers don't work, and I have spent allot of wasted money on these high end primers.
I have used some of the LaPrairie foundations and wasn't thrilled about them. But I think they hit a home run w/this primer.

This is a gorgeous gold colored primer. In the jar it looks very glittery, but once applies gives a beautyful base for your makeup with a slight glow.
This is pricey, here in Canada it is $200.00! But a little goes a long, long way.
My makeup seems to last longer as well, very nice product.
(I wish the packaging was in a pump though, not a jar , esp. for the amount of money you are paying!)

Cellular Treatment Gold Illusion Liner Filler is a brand new line filler/ primer from LaPraire. This is another WOW product for a primer junkie like me. This is a new (better IMHO) incarnation of LaPraire's Rose Illusion Line Filler. This one is designed for dry or dull skin as it is not oil free like Rose Illusion (so it doesn't flake or leave any residue). This one is gold-infused and it's designed to fill in fine lines and wrinkles while also hydrating, illuminating, restoring firmness, elasticity and even providing free-radical protection. It provides a lovely, slightly cushiony (line filler) texture and a VERY luminous look under foundation, but it can also be worn alone. For my personal taste, it's just a bit TOO shiny gold sans makeup. But, then again, the gold tint does quite effectively tone down redness so using it alone could work depending on the look you want. It's gentle and feels great on the skin and is non-irritating to my sensitivities and rosacea. It's expensive at $150, but a very little dab (smoothed over moisturizer) goes a long, long way. I use a tiny spatula to access the product as it comes in a jar (this prevents contaminating it with bacteria from my fingers) and I think it's a bit too thick for a pump dispenser (which I'd prefer). I expect it will last for many, many months, but I will rebuy.
