Did you clean the bulb with rubbing alcohol after the installation ??
Use your test light to assure that there is current at the terminals in both high and low beam.
Which brand headlights are we dealing with ??; some just do not last.

I would investigate the bulb first. But there is an orange relay in the panel on LH side of the engine bay by the shock tower. It is your headlight controll relay. If bad, you could loose a function of one bulb say L high beam or something but both lows and R high beam will still work.
