Better low light tungsten results with Sylvania Halogen Bulbs

I often shoot pictures with only the light from two 100 watt bulbs in table lamps beside my bed.

A bulb blew in one lamp and not being able to find another GE Reveal bulb in the closet I replaced it with a Sylvania Halogen Super Save Soft White Bulb - 1 "100W Replacement using only 72w"

Immediately, I noticed the light was much brighter than that from the 100 watt Reveal in the other lamp.  I also notice a slight greenish cast and wondered what that would do to my results.

Much to my surprise, the pink cast that shows up in many low light shots, disappeared.

Here's one with the GE Reveal Bulbs:

Here's one taken when I switched to the Sylvania Super Save Soft White Halogen bulbs:
