Courtney Phyrra

I’m Courtney, the digital content creator behind Phyrra & the YouTube Channel PhyrraNyx. I wrote a book, Hooded Eyes Makeup Manual, which is exclusive to Amazon. With over a decade of makeup obsession & experience, I share the best in cruelty-free beauty & gothic fashion to inspire you to explore your unique style and expression ethically! I have published over 9,000 articles and over 150,000 comments. I’ve created over 1,000 videos. I started my blog Phyrra in 2008 and have exclusively run it by myself since its inception.

Want to Advertise on Phyrra?

When I write a sponsored article or shoot a sponsored video, I’m receiving payment for the work and time I put into testing the product, writing the article, editing the content, and the time spent cultivating an audience over the past 12 years. I am NOT receiving payment for a favorable review. I always share my honest thoughts and experiences.

I do not work on commission only. Do not contact me about commission-only opportunities. I do not push sales on my audience. I focus on raising brand awareness for the brands I believe in. A person needs to see a brand mentioned a minimum of 7 times before they will see make a purchase. If you contact me about a commission only ‘partnership’ I will now mark your message as spam. I get hundreds of emails daily and I’m over brands trying to take advantage of people like me.

I always disclose per USA FTC guidelines. I do not offer text links that are against Google’s Terms of Service.

Interested in a Guest Post?

I only allow guest posts from people I know on a personal level. This means you need to know my name, the topics I’m comfortable talking about on my blog, and how your guest post will add value for my audience. If you have a collaboration idea, please email me to discuss.

My review rules

  • I don’t guarantee a specific time frame for a review unless it is a sponsored post. It could be 3 days or 3 months; I work full-time outside of my blog & I prioritize what pays my bills.
  • If you’re contacting me about beauty, it must be cruelty free. This means not tested on animals anywhere in the world. See my cruelty free list.
  • Not every sample that I receive will be featured. I only accept things I think I will like, but if I don’t like something, I probably will not feature it.
  • I always share my honest opinions and experiences with a product. I try to find positive and negative things to say about every review. My audience trusts me and expects this.
