Not to confuse you, but if you are concerned about the bulbs ability to show true colors, then check the spec for CRI (color rendering index). Look for a bulb with a CRI of 90 or more.

Would an Incandescent Bulb at 2,500 k be more Yellow and Darker to the Eye?
It would be more yellow but how dark it is will depend on its output not color temperature. It will affect colors in such a way as to make fewer distinguishable so that might appear to be a sort of "darker".

Halogen incandescent lights run at a sufficiently high temperature that they give off enough UV light so the fixtures they are in often have a glass plano lens to filter the UV.
