Blue is less bright than white. The brightest light is 4300K white to 5000K white (with a slight blue hint).

As you go to higher color temperature, the light gets bluer and dimmer.

As you go to a lower color temperature, the light gets yellower (3000K) such as our halogen headlights.

HIDs put out more light and use less power... 35 watts, for example will put out light better than 130 watt halogen bulbs. 55 watt HIDs are available and can make the blue 6000K-8000K HIDs brighter, but still not as much light as 5000.

If you want just a brighter halogen bulb and not convert to HID/xenon bulb which needs a ballast and starter 'kit', then check out your local auto parts stores selection of bright halogen bulbs.

Blue lights are gay. I'll agree with DavidK here.
