Jesus-themed Cosmetics Cause Outrage And Are Pulled From Shelves

lookin good forjc Jesus themed Cosmetics Cause Outrage And Are Pulled From Shelves
A cosmetics line, called Lookin’ Good For Jesus, has been publicly crucified (sorry, I just had to) and pulled from shelves in Singapore. Catholic customers were appalled by the products and packaging, which depict J.C. as somewhat of a sex symbol.

Lookin’ Good For Jesus products include bubble bath that “makes you feel like you’re walking on water” and lip balm that promises to return your pout “to near virgin quality.”

Wing Tai Retail, which owns three Asian TopShop outlets, removed the line from their stores after receiving complaints.

U.S. company BlueQ, manufacturer of Lookin’ Good For Jesus, has several other lines that push the P.C. envelope – such as Mental Case, Wash Away Your Sins, Total Bitch, and Virgin/Slut.

What do you think? Cheeky or downright blasphemy? Leave a comment below.

    Love it. I actually have the tote, lip gloss, compact mirror, and desktop Jesus. I think it’s hilarious and fantastic.

    Well, just reading the other lines that they have also–I DO think the names for their products is definitely in poor taste. It is blaphemy!

    The Virgin lotion smells great, is all I know. The back of the bottle reading “Tested on Virgins” always gave my friends a hoot.
