Lukey Lukey’s Five Best Places to Shop Beauty in Paris

  1. Online Beauty – Laconicum

“Laconicum is the beauty and wellness e-commerce for beauty-freaks and neophytes.

Here is our official and formal definition. We invented Laconicum because Laconicum didn’t exist. We travelled, snooped around, bought cosmetics and shared our discoveries. We are cosmetic detectives. We went to Kyoto and brought back species that looked like spring water. When we went to Stockholm, we admired their beautiful Swedish manes. And every time we came back, we told each other everything.

Our brands are hard to find in France. We are demanding judges and we choose them scrupulously. We support cosmetics that are inspiring, honest and with a touch of madness. With us, you will find independent, iconic, surprising and daring brands.”

2. Luxury Beauty – Galeries Lafayette Haussmann

“This Parisian mecca of beauty with an intimate salon feel is a true invitation to well-being. Galeries Lafayette’s beauty services are wide-ranging and adapted to all beauty addicts. Here, you’ll find the pioneers of French and international makeup, new emerging brands and upcoming green labels. The brands represented include Kure Bazaar with its wide choice of organic nail polish and Seasonly and its express skincare treatments. A whole programme!”

3. Indie Beauty – Blissim

“Blissim is the number one beauty box in France .

4. Best French Pharmacy – CityPharma

“Citypharma, the French leader in pharmacy and parapharmacy, offers a wide range of parapharmacy, phytotherapy, aromatherapy and medicines (homeopathy, veterinary products, prescription or non-prescription medicines) at the best prices.”

5. Most Unique Beauty Space – Samaritaine

“Founded by Ernest and Marie-Louie Cognacq-Jaÿ in 1870, what started as a small boutique on rue de Pont-Neuf has become much more than just a department store: it has become the go-to destination in the heart of the capital. In 2021, it’s reopening to unveil the exceptionally revived iconic Art Nouveau building along with a new contemporary structure on rue de Rivoli.LVMH has entrusted DFS, the world leader in the sale of luxury goods to travelers, with Samaritaine’s design and operation. It now offers more than 20,000 square meters with over 600 iconic and avant-garde brands from the worlds of fashion, watchmaking and jewelry, as well as the largest beauty space in Europe. Samaritaine has curated a unique and exclusive collection of places to eat and drink, showcasing the most authentic aspects of Paris and the French art de vivre.
