Comments about Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer:
I recently went to the Marine Corps Ball, and decided that that was a good time to try out a product that is supposed to make my makeup last longer...or so I thought. Not only did this product not do anything my moisturizer already does, it contains below-average ingredients.
I was under the impression that this product was similar to [Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer] . Not necessarily a product I need, but for the formal occasion, I thought it was a great time to try a product that would extend the life of my makeup.
**Napoleon Perdis **says** Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer**: "helps strengthen and smooth skin's texture" and "provides instant hydration for all skin types and helps makeup last even longer." That sounded exactly like what other foundation primers that I have used did, so I was really surprised when this product turned out to be a totally different kind of product.
The texture of this primer is like a thin lotion. It rubs in very easily and leaves your face feeling moisturized. It ***does not ***go on or feel like a typical foundation primer. This left my face feeling slightly oily instead of absorbing instantly like most primers do. My makeup went on the same as it always does when I use a moisturizer. In fact, this product works and feels exactly like a moisturizer, not at all like a foundation primer. It didn't make my makeup last any longer than normal, which is what I was going for since it was for a formal occasion.
Besides not doing what it claimed, I also don't like the scent or ingredients. The scent smells like strong perfume, and perfume gives me a headache. I don't like the ingredients because this product contains two types of parabens. Overall, I think **Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer** is a mis-labeled, strongly scented moisturizer made with sub-par ingredients. I wouldn't use it again and am glad this was only a sample.
