Many of you would realise that this is a very strange occurrence because MAC have very strict distribution rights, and in Australia it is ONLY sold at MAC Counters (in David Jones and Myer stores, MAC Pro Stores and on the MAC Australian website. Target has never been known as a stockist of MAC Cosmetics. Many savvy bloggers instantly put on their investigation hat and started to look into the how and why of this new MAC stockist.

First and most importantly, The Plastic Diaries turns the big 1 today. Yes, on 26 May 2010, we went live with the first proper blog post. I don’t count anything really before that time because it was more of an online personal rambling about my nose job, and I think only my mother read it.
