Have you used those products before? How hard are they to use? I've never used paint pens. I'm decent at painting walls but cars are obviously not like walls 😂

I bought a 1/2 quart. from my local automotive paint dealer. Figured I would need some over time. There are many You Tube videos on touching up paint.

I have not used. That being said, they were highly recommended here on another thread.

If your Dusk Blue is a metallic paint there is no way to match it accurately. It will stick out like a sore thumb but a touch-up pen will protect the metal, at least.

I'm going to give Dr. Color Chip a shot and will report back with how it turns out.

You'll need to play with it to get the flakes to match best they can to your original metallic paint. The paint should look a certain way when you apply it in one direction and another way when you apply it a different direction.
