I mentioned Becca's Ultimate Coverage Concealing Crème ($32, 0.16 oz) in my recent base roundup post, and here's the in-depth (ish) report.
I use concealers daily, because I don't use foundation every day. I have some redness around my jawline that I like to conceal, but I don't always feel the need for a full face of foundation.

I've used and liked MAC Mineralize concealer (NC20) and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard) previously, but this is the one I'll be repurchasing. It comes in a glass pot, which is my least favorite aspect, but it's too thick for any other form of packaging. It's absolutely a cream - thick but easy to apply in thin layers. I use my ring finger and dab it on the spots I want to coverage, and then buff out with a damp Beauty Blender, flat-topped brush, or round brush...basically, it's easy to buff out. If I am wearing foundation, I pat concealer on last, to get at anything that foundation doesn't cover, and it melds in beautifully.
It offers full coverage, but never cakes up, and it has a luminous quality without containing sparkles. It conceals without mattifying and keeps that "natural skin" appearance. Sometimes I set with powder, and sometimes I don't, but I never notice it slipping or pilling up or doing anything shady. I also love that it has yellow/golden undertones, and isn't too pink or orange like some concealers are (my shade is Tahini). I purchased mine at Sephora.
