May 14th is my 4th Anniversary from blogging! I’ve come a long way since I started. I was originally on Blogger as Decorative Diva since Phyrra was taken. I switched to Fresco Phyrra because Decorative Diva didn’t really fit me. I should have just started originally as Phyrra on a self-hosted platform, like I wanted. I eventually moved to self-hosted on the WordPress platform as Phyrra and have been happy with it. Anyway, I digress. I’ve got a Rafflecopter Sweepstakes going on for my Blog Anniversary.

Happy Anniversary! I remember back when you were still under Decorative Diva. So glad you have made it this far being one of the most well-known bloggers out there; you’re definitely an inspiration Phyrra!
Congratulations on your 4 year anniversary and good luck to everyone who enters the giveaway. xx
Happy Anniversary! Love your blog
Can I still enter if I don’t have facebook?
The only required entry method is Twitter.
Wow thats so awesome 4 years!! It’s funny how you mentioned your changing of names, I’ve been thinking about doing that lately! Seems like a lot of work but seriously considering it. Really cool of you to throw a anniversary giveaway. If you have any advice on the easiest way of switching names let me know please.
How exciting! Gratz on the anniversary.
Oh wow! Happy anniversary! I know I’ve been reading your blog for almost 3 years. I’m sure like a lot of people, you are who really got me into indie makeup.
My favorite post of yours recently was the one of the Tarina Tarantino palette. I need it!
Happy Anniversary to one of the most beautiful women I know. And I mean she’s beautiful on the inside, doesn’t hurt that she has such a pretty face to go with it <3 you doll!
Contrats on the 4th anniversary! You have dedication!
Happy 4 years! You were one of the first blogs I started reading and helped reignite my love of cosmetics and all things beauty!
I really like the eye primer reviews you’ve done (some recent, some older). I keep thinking I need to try out Pixie Epoxy…
Amazing, happy 4th! Stick around for many more years of awesomeness to come! I’ve read your blog before I started writing my own. ^^ You’re an inspiration!
Oh I almost forgot! My favorite post you’ve written sorta-kinda recently was about the Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Nude Opal. I’ve been obsessed with getting it. Someday soon, it will be mine~
Happy Anniversary. Your eyeshadow primer posts have surely helped me find the right primer. I also enjoy your indie reviews.
I liked the Dorian & Dahl post – I’m becoming a perfume junkie as well as a makeup junkie.
congrats on 4 years! it’s been fun watching you grow and evolve as well, including hair, etc. i like reading those type of posts too, like the one you had w/tips for color treated hair!
Happy anniversary! I’ve been loving the macro shots on your eye looks with your new camera.
Love the article you did over at Temptalia.com
My favourite post is your review of the UD 15th Anniversary Palette. I’ve reread it several times, ogling over the beauty that is Deep End.
Happy 4 years! I’ve only recently found your blog, but I am LOVING it so far! Keep up the good work!
Happy 4 years I especially loved your caring for colored hair post, as I’ve recently fallen in love with having insanely red hair (just in time for graduation, even). Keep up the awesome work!
Congrats on the blogiversary I hope there’ll be another four years!
I also forgot to say. My favorite posts are fyrinnae swatches I love Fyrinnae and you always keep close tabs on them so your blog is a great way to keep up with the newest colors!
This looks like such a wonderful giveaway! Adore all of your posts- especially the indie company swatches
Happy blog anniversary!
Just a note, I can’t seem to enter the sweepstakes because it demands you follow @phyrra on Twitter to “unlock” the other entries, and I don’t have a Twitter account. Does anybody know if there’s a way to get around this?
The only method required to to enter this sweepstakes is Twitter. Sorry! You have to have a twitter account and follow @phyrra to enter. Then it unlocks the rest.
Happy Blog Anniversary!
I love when you did your primer comparison posts, it really helped me decide from all the different primers out there!
I find this unfair, as so many of us follow you by so many other means, but do not have a Twitter account. When will people realize that not everyone WANTS a Twitter account?
As stated above, the only method required to to enter this sweepstakes is Twitter. Sorry! You have to have a twitter account and follow @phyrra to enter. Then it unlocks the rest.
No matter what method I chose as required, someone would complain.
I chose Twitter because it’s my favorite method. I get all my news on twitter because news travels faster on twitter than any other medium.
Happy 4th anniversary!
Happy 4th anniversary! You’ve been in my top five favorite beauty blogs for years. I really liked your wearable blue shadow post for Kelly at Vampy Varnish; Blue shadow always has such a bad reputation but I really think it’s all about how it’s worn and not the color itself.
Anyway, congratulations! Four years is huge! Thank you for all the awesomeness!
My favorite post of yours is the one that introduced me to Cult Nails.
I’ve really been enjoying the eyelash info!
Happy 4 year anniversary! It’s funny how so many bloggers seem to have started their blogs around this time of year, I’ve seen many blogiversary posts lately!
I am yet to place my first order with Fyrinnae – your blog posts make me want to own most of their stuff!
Congrats on the 4 years!
Happy Anniversary! Great giveaway.
I like the posts you do about your hair color. It always looks great.
Congrats, Phyrra! I don’t know that I could even pick a single favorite post of yours, but I do know that I love your focus on swatching/providing info on pale foundation options. I don’t think I’d have ever given Meow a try if it hadn’t been for you!!
* Most recent post I liked as your BH Cosmetics Custom Palette #2.

Congrats!! 4 Years! WOW!
My favourite post lately was the Makeup Geek Purely Glamorous.
Wooo Happy Anniversary!
Happy anniversary! Thank you for such a generous giveaway!
What a great giveaway! Thank you so much for your dedication!
Congratulations on 4 years of blogging!
My favorite recent post was the review of Urban Decay Freelove. I went out and bought it the next day!
I really liked your post on how to wear the neon trend and you’re always the 1st place I come when looking for make-up swatches since you take some of the best.
My favorite post of yours lately was the one for the Ion Color Brilliance blue hair dye. I dye my hubby’s hair (he does a bright wide “streak” on top), and he wanted to go blue. We went with another brand, and we were NOT happy with the results (we bleached on top, then added the blue, and it turned BROWN – his natural color). I’ve used the Ion Color Brilliance in red on his hair before and had great results. Now, I’ll have to try the blue!! Thanks for the review!
My favorite post is on keeping up your hair color, duh.
Happy four years!
Congrats on 4 years! I love reading you every day
Congtatulations! Happy Four Years!!! I really enjoy all your posts, but if I had to choose, it would be your most recent hair color post with your friend. I thought t sounded like such a great day to color your friend’s hair…and your dogs had a fun time, too. I’m too scared to color my own hair, so I always like reading what new color you’e trying…on yourself, or a friend. xo
One of my favorite blog posts from you recently was the one you did regarding caring for colored hair Congrats on 4 years, also!
I really like your independent spotlights — it’s great to see what goes on behind the scenes of the companies, & read about the owners’ interest & thought processes.
Happy 4 years of blogging! Thank you for the giveaway!
My favorite post is still the one about caring for colored hair, very helpful!
My favorite post so far was the review on the new Ion Color Brillance Brights hair dye
My favorite post of late was the Wearable Blue video tutorial. I’ve been trying to experiment with mixing brights with neutrals and feeling like I wasn’t getting the results I wanted, but that was a great option I hadn’t tried.

Happy four year anniversary! Here’s to many more.
Thanks so much for this, and congratulations!! My favorite post recently was the Wearable Summer Blue Video Tutorial. I absolutely love blue shadows, but I don’t know what to pair them with so it’s not BLUE BLUE, which I’m afraid I can’t pull off. This look is so light and fresh, something I would wear for everyday even!
I really liked that gold look you did recently, it made me really want Salted Caramel! I also always love your Silk Naturals product reviews (how I found your blog!)-they always help me figure out what I need from new collections!
congrats and of course, thanks for the opportunity
My favorite recent post was when you went to the Tampa Beauty Show at Nordstroms. I loved the makeover you received at the Nars counter. You looked great! Congratulations on 4yrs blogging!
I enjoy your thorough swatch posts. Holy cow, about any company or color range I am interested in, you have something I can look at. I also really appreciate the primer comparisons. Since I am looking to avoid certain a certain ingredient, it helps to know how primers that don’t contain it stack up to the favorites of the makeup community.
Congrats on 4 years!!! <3
I really love reading your blog and getting enabled by all your amazing reviews/swatches!
Hey…I remember Fresco Phyrra!! I really liked the primer comparison post. Happy 4 years!!
Happy 4th anniversary! We all love you and look forward to many more years of gorgeous eye shadow reviews.
My favorite post was actually a vlog. You said ‘blend the hell out of it’ and I nearly fell out of my chair. Too funny!!!
What an amazing giveaway, from an amazing blog!
I adore the Plum Inferno look you did with Sugarpill’s Heartbreaker pallette! It is by far one of my favs!
Happy 4th!!! so amazing blog and givaway! ♥ [=]
This has to be the most exciting give away ever!
happy 4th anniversary! you’re my favorite beauty blogger :]
My favorite post that you’ve done recently was the photo tips for beauty bloggers. I have a small blog that I haven’t done much with because I didn’t like how the pictures were turning out, and it helps a lot to know how to take clearer and better pictures.
Happy 4th birthday! May you have many more.
Happy blogiversary! I was grateful for your post on photos for beauty blogging the other day – I’m not a beauty blogger, but I like to take photos of my looks to put on tumblr, and I have a terrible time getting anything that looks halfway decent. >.<
My favorite recent post wast the darling girl swatchfest. Those colors are amazing!
Congratulations on 4 years!!! I like your recent eyeshadow primer comparison post. TFSI is definitely my favorite.
I really love your swatch posts.. in fact.. before ordering from most companies I always seem to wander back here to see if I’ve missed anything I saw in your swatches.
Congrats & Happy Anniversary!
Happy 4 years! My fav post is the photo tips one
I like all of your hair coloring posts, great ideas and looks Happy anniversary!
My favorite post? Please don’t make me choose. But I especially enjoy the posts where you show off your mad skillz with Sugarpill eyeshadows.
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
My favourite post of yours recently is the how to care for colored hair post. LOVED it, shared it, tweeted it, pinned it.
Happy Blogiversary, chica!
Congrats on 4 years! I love your blog!
Congrats!! I lov your blog. You do such a great job. Please keep it up.
Happy Anniversary Phyrra!!!
My favorite posts are the ones about Phaedra and Max! They are too cute!
Congratulations on 4 years of awesome blogging!
My favorite post was the Photo Tips For Beauty Bloggers. It had some great thoughts on photos in blogs, and I was really inspired by the part you mentioned about backgrounds — I have had frustration with getting pure white backgrounds to look good, and I’d never thought of using a textured background instead. I’ve been looking at my scarves and fabric swatches ever since, trying to figure out which ones would be good for backgrounds — all thanks to you!
congratulations on blogging for four years. I really liked your Revlon Colorburst Lip butters review, I am going to keep my eyes out and see if I can pick one up.
Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and giving back to your followers and fans.

You can right click the image and download it, and then upload it to your blog. My images are protected from hotlinking, so that’s why you’re seeing that message.
ohh okay! I’ll do that, thanks!
My favorite recent post is “Urban Decay Dreams.” I also ended up loving Walk of Shame, a completely one-eighty from how I felt about it before I started messing with it. It matches my skintone and can be blended with other shadows to lighten their color.
I love Urban Decay (ohgod ohgod if I win let it be the Urban Decay stuff ohgod) and I’ve wished for a while that they would do a purple palette, a green palette, a blue palette, etc. Now I have the option of slowly (but frantically) building my own! There’s going to be a lot of Walk of Shame on Ebay soon, I bet..
Happy fourth! I love your style. What brand of dye do you use for your hair?
Oh, and how is all of this split up? By brand? Or does one person… get it all? -starts salivating-
One person gets everything.

thanks for the great giveaway!
happy annivcersary!! i like this post the best
Happy Anniversary! You continue to be such an inspiration to me as a blogger and a beauty fan.
I enjoy all your blog posts so it’s hard for me to pin it down as to which one is my favorite. However, one of my favorites was the one you wrote on the Make Up For Ever Rock For Ever Palette
I am so angry at myself because I could have gotten that palette for $20 at a fair show but didn’t think the colors would mach well on my fair skin. However after I saw your beautiful eye creation, I knew I had made a terrible mistake as we have the same skin coloring and it looked fabulous on you.
So that is one post I will ALWAYS remember.
Thanks as always for doing such fine work and for doing this wonderful giveaway. Happy Anniversary.

Happy Blog Birthday! I would love to get some more insight on your transition from blogger to wordpress and self hosting.
Happy Blogiversary I loved your post on the nail hardening system–it’s pricey but since I trust you, I’m considering it now for winter months!
I love the post on the rainbow eye. I would love to do that. It’s really lovely.http://www.phyrra.net/2012/05/memorial-day-rainbow-eye.html and I also liked the eye primer comparison. I use urban decay myself. I would like to try the nars though it seems so light.
