Fixing Chips in Paint

UGH, I was cleaning things out of my trunk and a damn screwdriver fell out of one of my tool bags and fell right on to my back bumper. Lucky or not, I think the very tip hit it and left a hideous chip. It's a small chip, but its annoying me. I'm also fearful it could get worse over time. I would say it's a bit deeper than a normal rock chip, but not totally sure. I've never corrected rock chips on previous cars.

Can anybody recommend a good DIY chip repair tool/kit? I was thinking maybe just getting a touch up pen and trying that, but I'm not sure that would actually fill the chip. If so, any recommendations for touch up paint?

My car is Bluestone Metallic. THANKS!

I’ve had decent success with small paint chips using Dr. Color Chip’s Standard Paint Chip Repair Kit. They have most all BMW paint colors including yours. https://www.drcolorchip.com/

The matching color and clear coat you can buy at the dealer sucks and doesnt match , at all.
