It's in-between. It's definitely not very bright, but it will light up a small space perfectly. It is equivalent to about a 40-50 Watt incandescent bulb.

I am writing this as i disagree with what the others have said above.
I purchased a designer light shade/chandler where the bulb sits in the middle and you can visibly see it (no fabric etc covering it) and the bulb more than lights the room when at 80%. I also have these bulbs in two (covered) lamps in the corners of the room and with the two of them on it dose fill the whole room.
I have noticed that the particular colours shine brighter, Red and some orange shine very dark while the purples/greens are quite bright.

It definitely takes more than 1 bulb to illuminate a space for tasks. I would describe it as mostly for mood lighting - though, if you have a few of them in a single room, together then will light it (depending on the size of the room obviously). But don't expect to stick one of these bulbs into a ceiling light and illuminate the entire space. The exception is as a bedside lamp - it definitely provides enough light to read in bed at night.
