MAC | Watch me simmer

Ever since the release of the MAC shop cook collection I've had my eye on this shade, and it's since been added to the core collection so it must be doing something right!
It's described as 'A Bright Pink Orange' though I find it does tend to differ slightly depending on the light. Swatched it looks very orange, in the bullet seems almost red, while on the lips it seems much pinker.
It's my first Amplified finish and I have to say I'm impressed. It's very pigmented, really creamy and I found the staying power to be pretty good too.
Though it might seem quite full on, I’ve found myself reaching for it a lot recently as it adds a pop of colour to a simple outfit and really brightens me up. It's the perfect summer shade and I'm sure it would look gorgeous with a tan.

What do you think lovelies? :)

Quick update | whasuuuup?

My goodness, over 4 weeks I've been away from blogging! 4 weeks! Though I could bore you all with excuses, the fact of the matter is that I've just been very very busy and when I've found a spare few moments I just haven't really felt inspired to post. I didn't want to churn out posts I wasn't happy with and though I've missed it, I did need a bit of a break from the procrastination platform that is my blog.
So, in the past 26 days I've finished/ handed in all coursework for my final year, finished my A level art exam and turned 18! I also have exams coming up in the next few weeks, as I'm sure many of you do too, so good luck!
As you can see, I'm blogging from my patio today as the weather is beautiful! I'm hoping to get a few posts out today as I'm feeling very motivated sat here in the sunshine! Hope you're all very well my lovely lovelies and hello to you new followers :)

Happy birthday little blog :)

Well well well, Uglily is one year old today! It's exactly a year since I published my first rambly post with low expectations. So what's changed? The overall appearence of Uglily is pretty much the same though I think hope the content has improved in quality. In the twelve short months I've been blogging I've put up a total 80 posts, gained nearly 400 of you lovelies and had over 9,000 page views, for some, it may seem insignificant but considering I never thought anyone would want to read what I have to say, I think thats pretty darn good going :)

So for each and everyone of you who has read, followed, or even just left a lovely comment I just want to say a big thank you, I really appreciate every kind word and click of a mouse.

& If you're feeling curious, have a read of my first post! x
