Glee star Cory Monteith, 31, found dead in Vancouver Hotel on overdose

It’s really sad when you hear news regarding a good actor gone to waste because of addiction.  There are many Hollywood actors and actresses that have wasted their career and their life because of dealing into drugs and other addiction.  The last I have known is Whitney Houston and the recent news is the Glee star Cory Monteith which news says was found in one of the hotels in Vancouver Canada died because of overdose.

Cory Monteith have long been battling drug addiction even at his early age.  He attended 16 schools just to finish a degree but still it wasn’t possible until his parents decided to send him to rehab.  He was a troubled teens and just like some other teenage guy that i have personally known, this would not be over unless they have learned and comprehend that there is more life than this addiction.

He was seen and portrayed in small roles for different movies and television series but he made name as Finn Hudson on the famous Glee and of course, Lea Michele boy friend(a musical show that made million of teens dancing and singing).

I never liked Glee but occasionally watched them , i guess I’m just too old for that but i always love the concept of singing , dancing and acting at the same time and watching Cory on that show, i would say that he had improved a lot but nevertheless i know that he has problems with this personal life.

It’s a little early for him to go but that’s what you get when you played with dangerous acts, sooner or later you will be succumbed by it.  Another good actor turned into waste.

The Great Oz at Urban Decay

I have been anticipating to watch this re-make of L. Frank Baum’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz .  Since it was a favorite story of young children including me. So,i guess the inspiration for the new Urban Decay make up collection is perfectly timing. It depicts the image of good and bad.

Two extremely gorgeous limited edition is available for all the beautyholics  out there.  If you love sweet and fierce look, this palette is definitely a must try. It features never before seen shades.

You can even recreate Michelle Williams’ ethereal, spellbinding look from the film with The Glinda Palette or try Mila Kunis’ captivating, edgy onscreen look with The Theodora Palette  or i think you can even combined a more fiercefull look like Evanora.

Hollywood Fashion : MAC Riri hearts

A perfect beauty, packed in pretty pink designs,  singer Rihanna colloborated with MAC cosmetics to create this collection.  First to introduce is the RiRi Woo a perfect red lipstick inspired by Ruby Woo and will be sold on May 4 and 5 at Rihanna concerts  at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will be sold online  via maccosmetics.com.

I love Rihanna’s song but sometimes I don’t favor  her personality since it is somewhat like Lady Gaga with her bad girl image and striking fashion statement.

Although it’s entirely her way, her popularity and stardom could not be questioned. Her latest collaboration with MAC will give four products (which you can see from above picture)  MAC has already colloborated with  Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj as well.  Just leaving me an impression that they do like girls with worlds in their hands.

The summer collection will includes two additional lipsticks, a Lustre Drops shade and a powder blush duo.  Fall’s 16 sku’s include four lipsticks, a deeply pigmented Lipglass version of RiRi Woo, two multishade eye shadow palettes and false lashes. Holiday will bring another 10 items, including nail polish, a makeup bag and additional lipsticks.

That’s something all Rihanna’s avid fans would look forward too and the name, i so like it, it reminds me “Ri-Ri”  hmm. Now, i should ask my friends not to call me “Ri” again 🙂

Hollywood Fashion- Drew Barrymore on fashion and motherhood

I guess, Hollywood is one place that fashion is indeed part of  them.  I thought, it would be nice to feature atleast one actress or actor in a week and see what they love, their fashion statement and the life they leading.

Actress, movie director, producer, a mother of a new baby girl,  Drew Barrymore is a name I have known ever since i have learned to read and watch television.   I guess she indeed love flower, after forming Flower Film, she    recently launched her beauty line called “Flower” which will be exclusive in all Walmart and what’s the great thing about  is, It could be one of the major beauty skin care from a celebrity that doesn’t cost hundred or thousand of dollars but it doesn’t mean that it’s less a thing.

If you think that it was just created to go with the trend, apparently your having a wrong notion, as I have read Drew Barrymore served six years for Cover Girl as their co-creative director until such time that she decided to produce her own beauty line.

Inspired with the 90’s look, Flower Beauty line are all under $15, you can buy some for just $4. Now I wish i can have atleast some  of this 181 items. (i’ll definitely ask some friends to get them for me) .  Flower Beauty doesn’t have grand advertisement because she thought it would add up for additional expense that the consumer would have to carry but I guess, this one doesn’t need too much advertisement, Drew itself is already a household name.

She’s passionate with this new endeavor and especially on taking care of her four month old daughter , “Olive.  That’s mom power 🙂

Here’s another good news.  You don’t need to go to Walmart store to get one , you can buy through their online store and get free shipping when you buy  $45 up.
