How many coats do you have over the original color? If only 1, you may need a second coat. It has also been my experience that paint on a wall tends to look darker than it did on a small color chip.

no need to paint or prime white first

Just put on a second coat and you'll be fine. If the color is too dark, you can lighten it by adding a half pint (or less) of it to a gallon of the base. It doesn't take much tint to add color, so don't start with more than a half cup. If its too light, add just a little bit more of the original paint. Don't add much at a time. It will get too dark very quickly if you do.
