There's something about buying beauty products while traveling that always feels extra special. It matters not if you've gained ten pounds eating macarons in Paris or if you don't have the courage to try on jeans in Tokyo—shopping for makeup, skincare or perfume is a fun way to get a local retail fix that won't weigh down your baggage. Whether securing a far-flung brand you can't find back home or replacing a crucial item you forgot to pack, the world is your peptide-enhanced oyster. Here, our favorite beauty shopping stops from Paris to Tokyo to Brooklyn and back. They're all much, much chicer than just going the duty-free route.—Sheri Radel Rosenberg
