Best product to fill in scratches?

Lets just say I did something that I wish I hadnt I had some paint (from another car) that was stuck pretty bad to my paint. I tried using rubbing compound to get it out but to no avail. I then decided to try (heres the bonehead part) a scouring pad with light force to get the paint off. Its one of those things that looks good and is not noticable when wet but then when it dries, you realise what you have done Luckily it is not in a noticable area, but I still would like to do something about it. In otherwords, when wet you cant really see it, but when it dries the area looks all scratched up and has a slight grey haze to it

I tried some wax and polish that I have and it helped a little, but its still pretty obvious

So on to autozone I went and I saw two products. One was called Scratch X by Mequires, and another is the Turtle Wax polish/wax stuff that is made for a certain color car (mine is black so its easy). Also the Turtle wax stuff also had a lipstick packaged deal that is "to cover up more severe scratches"

Anyone tried either one? Or can recommend something else?

Sounds like that area just needs a good polish with a high-speed polisher and some appropriate rubbing compound.
