Which condenser microphone is the best: MXL 2006 or Blue BLUEBIRD?

I wonder why you want a condenser mic.
There are good reasons to use them,
but they are best suited to extremely quiet environments
such as professional recording studios.
Since I don't know your exact situation
and I believe you don't really know much about the subject,
I recommend a dynamic mic rather than a condenser.
Shure, Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, and Electro-Voice
are the brands most people should consider
rather than a recent upstart like Blue or MXL.

Depends on your requirements and how you plan to use the mic.
Both are good quality, large diaphragm, condenser mics that use an XLR connection. You'll need an external phantom power supply or the mixer input or audio adapter to which the mic is connected will need to be able to provide phantom power.
If you are purchasing new, both come with a shock mount... The Bluebird comes with a pop-filter - I don't think the MXL 2006 does, but pop-filters are easy/inexpensive to add:
Personally, I'd go with the Bluebird... though I have every confidence my requirements are very different from yours.
