There is a way, but you need to change strategy: instead of formatting afterwards, set the formatting before pasting and then paste "without format", in this way the text will use the target format instead of its own.

Set the paragraph style on your target document with all the characteristics you want, then do a "paste special" to paste without formatting. To paste without formatting: Ctrl-Alt-Shift-V (yep, a four key shortcut) or Edit → Paste special → etcetera.
