Concerns after installing AE's- HElP! DS2 Yellow?

I just completed the angel eye install on the passenger side headlight (04 330ci). when i turned my lights on to test it i noticed my DS2 xenon bulb start off that beautiful pure white then fade to yellow. Any suggestions to why this is happening?
I installed my HID fogs the other week and definitely know my headlight bulbs were fine. All colors matched (headlights to fogs). Now I feel like they are not. Its killing me, throws everything off.
Maybe Ballast on the bottom of the light is not pushed in all the way? could this be the problem?

Did you recently replace the xenon bulbs for the headlights?

Nope, same bulbs I got together. Honestly, I swear before I took the headlights out to put in the eyes they matched perfect. Connection?

Did you let the bulbs warm up fully and they were still white before or did you just turn them on for a few seconds, saw them white and that's that?

Definitely let it run for a bit to let them warm up. I may have forget to specify its only my passenger side headlight. They were fine before the AE install. I planning in doing the driver side in a little. I just would like to get this side right if I can before I move on.
