Headlights not powering correctly

So as the title says.

I have an 08 Overland with the HID headlights.

I'm used to how the headlights act when they're dying or burning out: they change color, start going pink, flickering, etc.

I replaced the headlights about 6-9 months ago with a cheap brand, which may or may not be the culprit.

The issue I'm having started about a week ago when I turned the lights on only one light was on. No warning, just didn't come on. So I switched them off and back on and both were on as normal.

Now it's more frequent but when I turn them off and on again, they switch. First the drivers is out, then the passenger, and sometimes neither turn on. I have a set of lights to replace them with and hopefully that fixes it but it just doesn't strike.me as the typical characteristic of a bad headlight.

Any thoughts?
