As your surfaces are identical, I'll make up a different example. 

If the purpose is just to see the intersection, full coloring may be

Plot3D[{3*x*y^3, Hue[0]}, {x, 1, 2}, {y, 1, 2}];
Plot3D[{2*x^3*y^2, Hue[2/3]}, {x, 1, 2}, {y, 1, 2}];

Alternatively use constant ColorFunctions. You'll see the intersection
when displaying them together:

Show[{%%, %}]
