A Jersey department store has removed a poster on its beauty counter that said wearing make-up was a courtesy to others.

Voisins has apologised for any offence after complaints about the LaNetta Maxfield quote.

The sign 'wearing make-up is not vanity, it's a courtesy to others' first drew criticism on social media last summer, but Voisins declined to remove it at the time.

Earlier this week a London-based actress tweeted about it, accusing the store of misogyny and sexism.

On its Facebook page, Voisins says it has taken feedback on board and removed the sign.  It says it was meant to be 'tongue in cheek'.
