My favorite compact powder foundations

I’m a big powder foundation user. I love them, because I’m always in a hurry (especially in the morning) and I have combination-oily skin. One simple step and my complexion is done. But I don’t like them all. I’m a bit picky with this kind of product. My criteria are : good coverage, buildable coverage (with brush or sponge), natural finish, not too matte or too shiny, easy to apply and comfortable to wear on the skin.

Here are my favorite ones (and that match all my criteria!).
