I went through this same exact situation. When it comes to white paints and pearl, it is impossible to perfectly match because of the way pearl lays down. Even subarus off the factory line don't match perfectly if they're painted on different batches. Every paint shop will tell you this, so the only way to get it unnoticeable (not match, like I said this is impossible) is to blend into the original paint on the quarter.

There are more issues with paint shops working on factory paint when it's not needed, and IMO the better option is to do what you did and just paint the bumper alone.

I paid top dollar $$$ at a high end paint shop, and if it makes you feel any better your paint matches better than mine does.
