Need advice on Type A bulbs 100W for Bathroom Vanity Lights

I'm planning to upgrade bathroom vanity light fixtures to https://www.costco.ca/pearson-4-light-v ... 42998.html

It requires 4 x 100W type A bulbs (sold separately). I'm looking for a compatible Warm Glow (or Soft White is OK too).

Is an A19 bulb compatible?
This is the most economical choice I found https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ecosma ... 1000835492

Suggestions on a compatible bulb type and where to buy them from would be appreciated, thanks.

Stay away from cheapo, shorter lifespan rated bulbs, they just die sooner.

15k hours from a good brand like philips/GE should be the minimum. 25k better.
ecosmart should be okay but not quite as good, stay away from the really cheap brands like globe, led for life, etc even if rated at 25k hours.

In the real world, bulbs don't necessarily last close to rated lifespan but a longer lifespan rating is still better when comparing the same brand bulb.
