For summer 2014, Mary Kay adds five beautiful shades to their Mineral Eye Color ($8) eyeshadow line. These shadows provide long lasting color and intense pigmentation. To read more and see some swatches, click......
What they are:
-Fade and crease resistant eyeshadows that applies smoothly and evenly
-Mineral based, with added vitamin A, C, and E
-Suitable for sensitive skin

Packaging:
The shades are sold individually in their 1.4g pans without a compact. An unfilled compact can be purchased separately to store the pans.

Formulation & Pigmentation:
Shimmers:
French Toast: This one is a dark brown with specks of golden shimmer. As you can tell from the swatch, the pigmentation is great. The texture is super smooth and rich, no complaints here!
Rosegold: This isn't quite a rose gold but it's a beautiful shade of dark metallic golden brown. The formulation of this is also phenomenal. It has everything you can ask from a shadow.

Mattes:
Driftwood: A matte light brown, this is probably the best matte formulation I have tried. Seriously, the texture was so smooth and creamy it might as well be a high quality cream shadow. Also, the pigmentation is super rich.
Stone: This is a elephant matte gray. Pigmentation-wise its slightly less intense than Driftwood but the texture is still very smooth and not at all chalky.
Ballerina Pink: This one is a very light baby pink. It may be because the color is so light but I thought the pigmentation wasn't so great on this one. The texture seemed a bit chalky as well. Not my fave of the bunch.

Overall:
I am completely in love with the first four shades, the pigmentation and formulation is truly unmatched. However, I kind of wish Mary Kay released these shades as a palette with a cute design, I appreciate the customizability of single pan shadows but I still prefer pre-made palettes.

Availability:
The Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color Eyeshadows are available online through a Mary Kay Consultant.
