I decided to pick up the Bare Escentuals Sephora Exclusive Get Started Kit ($174 value, for $60). It comes with 2 colors of foundation, a Mineral Veil or Tinted Mineral Veil, Warmth and 3 brushes: Full Flawless Face, Flawless Application Face and Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush plus a mini Prime Time Foundation Primer and instructional DVD. The set comes in Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, Dark and Deep. I've always thought I was a medium, but now I'm definitely bordering on light.
I love the value of this kit, but I don't really think 2 face brushes are necessary. I really only use the Flawless Application Brush (the shorter of the 2) but I guess it's nice to have another one in case you want to use it for Mineral Veil or Warmth. Overall, it's a great kit to start with and has everything you need. Definitely worth the price tag. The coverage is very light but is slightly buildable. Try it out and if you don't like it you can always return it.
