oil and oil are normally immiscible, but with proper mixing and stability agents, a permanent mixture, or emulsion, can be achieved. O/w emulsions are comprised of oil droplets suspended in an aqueous phase, while w/o emulsions are the opposite water droplets suspended in a continuous oil phase

There may be a difference at first, depending on how you combine them. But after a while, there's no difference.

If you put oil into water, the oil rises to the top, and you wind up with oil on top of water.

If you put water into oil, the water sinks to the bottom, and you wind up with oil on top of water.
