Lifecolor Kriegsmarine color question...

Hello,
Cracked open my Lifecolor Kriegsmarine Set 2 U-Bootwaffe color set.
I was going to shoot the UA 608 Schlickgrau 58 (light gray) color first. But upon opening the bottle the color was way darker and almost an exact match to the UA 609 Blaugrau 58-1 color, just a more greenish tone.
The UA 608 is nowhere near the color chip color portrayed on the box lid of a nearly white light gray. I even did a color chip test on a piece of cardboard and the two are nearly identical...
Do I have a wrong color with the right label??? All the other (5) colors in the set nearly match their color chips on the box lid.
Possible replacement colors so I can proceed with painting???
I really want to get on with painting this 1/72 U-boat...
TIA
Mark
