Best Monoprix in paris for beauty?

Hi, I'm visiting paris in a few weeks time and was just wondering if there are any particular Monoprix stores which have a good beauty department?
Thanks!

Don't know about Monoprix but Cite Pharmacy at 26 Rue Four in St. Germaine is amazing. Go early and not on Saturday as it is always packed.

Monoprix used to have a special Monoprix Beauté chain with special shops, but they have abandoned it.

However, you should know that even my rather pathetic little Monoprix in my working class neighborhood has a huge beauty section, so I am quite certain that you will find the same thing in any Monoprix that you go to.

It's a chain, the store carries the same products pretty much everywhere so it doesn't matter. The only difference is some can be a lot smaller/older than others, but those usually cut down in the clothing dept or something like that. So go to the one closest to you.

I did see a "Beauty Monop'" in Montmartre last week, on Rue des Abbesses - I was on a walking tour and didn't go in, but it looked bigger than the beauty section of the Monoprix near my hotel on Boulevard Saint-Michel. So you might see if there's one of those near where you'll be.

The beauty products in my "local" Monoprix looked pretty similar to what I could get at Target, based on a couple of walk-throughs, though I'm sure there are some differences. If you're into cosmetics, gomiki's suggestion sounds great!

Thanks for the replies!
I was already planning on visiting cite pharma to stock up on la roche posy skincare! I'm really looking forward to going there, but i'll make sure not to go on a saturday, thanks for that
I was just thinking about getting some cosmetics in mono prix (bourgeois etc..) so I'll just find the one nearest to me, that seems like the best plan.
Thanks everyone!
