"Looking Good for Jesus"

Report: Singapore retailer pulls "Jesus" cosmetics after complaints

SINGAPORE - A cosmetics line that extolls the virtues of "Looking Good for Jesus" has been pulled from stores in Singapore after some Catholics complained the items were disrespectful.
The Strait Times reports the product line included a "virtuous vanilla"-flavoured lip balm and a "Get Tight with Christ" hand and body cream

Promising to "Redeem your reputation and more," cosmetics were sold by British retailer Topshop and produced by Blue Q.

The newspaper says Wing Tai Retail, which manages Topshop in the city- state, removed the range late last month after receiving complaints.

One of the complainants says the products trivialize Jesus Christ and Christianity.

An unnamed Wing Tai Retail official apologized for offending the Christian community.
