Head light issue on 2001 Lexus LS430

A few months back my right low beam stopped working. Had an aftermarket bulb installed and it continues to function OK. My driver side low beam began to go out recently. At first I noticed that if I turned the lights off and back on, it worked for 1-2 minutes but then went out. Most recently, it has quit working altogether. Is the solution to replace with a new bulb also? If so, any recomendations on what make to purchase. The replacement I had installed was priced at $142 (a steal when compared to dealer pricing of $424)however, I see that there are several NEW HID bulbs available for much less.

Yes replace the bulb with a aftermarket bulb probably should use the same brand as the right hand side if possible so the lights are uniform
