HID headlight turned pink!

So my right side HID bulb is pink instead of white. I assume this means I need a new bulb? Should I replace both at the same time?

I was looking up prices for an OEM replacement and it looks like they're around $219 a piece. I don't really want to spend $440 on a pair of bulbs.
I found this on Amazon. Will these work fine? $112 sounds alot better to me than $440.
