Help needed to find good yellow-based concealer

I've got slightly darker/olive (sallow in winter) skin. I used to use Ruby and Millie concealer but that make up brand no longer exists.
Anyone got any recommendations for a decent yellow-based concealer that is not too cakey and drying? I've tried Bobbi Brown but it's not quite right. Years ago I used Touche Eclat but the coverage was only ok. May have to go back to MAC, but this wasn't quite creamy enough...

laura mercier. It's two colours (you need a brush) so you can blend to the exact colour you need for that bit of your face. Bit ££ but lasts ages

I always use Mac. Have to blast it with the hairdryer first to make it melt a bit! Very odd.

Thanks ladies. 2 colours sounds good saraseashell as I can mix according to season and skin tone. Lol at hairdryer Marylou 2!

I was just coming to say Laura Mercier but sarahseashell beat me to it! Would highly recommend it, it is quite dry in the compact so I tend to use a clean thumb to warm it up before applying with a brush. It gives me the perfect colour, I use more yellow if I'm covering up a red blemish or less otherwise. It's not drying at all when it's on.

Clinique Airbrush, great for my sallow skin.

Middleagedspread which colour of the clinique do you go for?

If its for under eyes, have you tried benefit erase paste? My skin is on the sallow side and I love the stuff.

Jemster, just had a look an its no 2 medium. Bought mid winter when my skin's at its most sallow. It's definitely yellowy rather than pinky, I use it under my eyes to cover the charming grey circles.
