Barcelona touch up

Has Anyone had any luck with touch up paint for the Barcelona red Trucks? The paint i got from the dealer isnt even close. Now the little chip sticks out like a sore thumb.

The factory touchup tube worked fine for the one chip I got. Not very big but I can't tell its really there.

Did you put too much in the chip? The best advice I can give it use a toothpick and just barely dip it in the paint and "dab" it from the middle out to fill in.

I backed over a tie down strap about a week ago because I have no luck. It took a 1 inch strip of paint off my rear bumper. I ordered touch up from automotivetouchup (3R3) since I have used there product before. It was a perfect match and they offer it in a variety of forms, aerosol / pen / bottle. After sanding it down and spraying a plastic adhesion promoter, base, and clear I can't even tell where it happened.
