I am interested in getting a blue black that leans slightly teal/gray for a vintage appearance. I like the old Diamine Blue Black, but the R2 looks more like a dark blue, which I already have in my collection. The Twilight appears to be more teal-leaning that the R2 Blue Black. I think Twilight may look like Skrip Blue Black (which I have, but it is very dry in my experience). Any thoughts on these two (or others suggestions)?

Twilight is a very dark teal, not a blue-black. It is not dry by any means. I am quite fond of it and often have it in my navy blue Skyline with the green stripe cap.  I don't have experience with Diamine Blue Black.
