Exclamation Color Match DIY

I want to save money, but want something that's not going to corrode or oxidize. My internet search sent me to Autozone where I got Duplicolor spray paint that was supposed to be guaranteed to match all Chevy colors. Assumed that was cheapest fix. Hoping I found the exact match, I attempted to fix my bumper, the color immediately looked off, but I thought maybe drying would match it. Now it just looks worse. My bumper is half blue and half grey. I bought blue granite when in fact my color is stealth grey. The area went from 1 sq ft to 3 when I tried to blend it.
I can't afford Maaco or anywhere that will charge $100 for the paint alone. Would anyone experienced know a website that sells manufacturer matching color paint in a DIY spray can? Amazon seems to be a little expensive, with a base and clear coat costing $45-$70 with s&h

I've used paint from automotivetouchup,com before and the paint matches really well for my color.
