Best X system lens to shoot street photography

I was thinking only at four lenses - three primes and a zoom - the 23mm f1.4, the 27mm f2.8, the 35mm f1.4 and the 18-55mm f2.8-f4.0

Below are the tests made with each of them.

23mm -

27mm -

35mm -


Photozone rated with 3 stars the 35mm, with 3.5 stars the 18-55m, with 3.5 - 4 stars the 23mm and with 4 stars the 27mm. But my choice is not simple at all.

I want to buy the one which is the best to cover my needs. What is most important for me? Sharpness, colors and pop-factor (if possible), bookeh, flare, weight/dimensions, price - all exactly in this order. Most of the pics will be taken in day time (only very few in low light), in the street. So, please help me to pick the ONE.
