L'oreal Feria pastel toning conditioner - Lilac Review

As I'm naturally auburn/ginger my hair can sometimes bleach up with warm orange tones.  So I will normally tone my hair using Wella Koleston mixed with 20% peroxide...
But for the past couple of times, I have just used L'oreal Feria pastel toning conditioner in Lilac lavender after bleaching(as purple counteracts yellow/orange tones)

l'oreal feria pastel lilac results

Here is a picture from last bleach up after the lilac had washed out.  My roots are actually about 1/2" on this picture, so you can see from looking at the top of my head, that I ACTUALLY didnt need to tone with Wella Koleston :]
I do admit I should of maybe taken a better picture to show you guys though!

So inside the box you just get the normal things; instructions, gloves and the pastel conditioner;
Normally I just drop the gloves and use my hands but the L'oreal gloves are actually not too bad!
The colour of the lilac conditioner is a really pretty lilac/purple colour, that just smells amazing too;
I must admit I dont follow the instructions at all for this product.  After reading a few reviews I noticed a common trend with most people saying you get better results when applying this on dry hair (similar to Pravana Vivids).    
So when my hair is completely dry, I will empty two full tubes of the Lilac conditioner into a tint bowl and apply generously to my using a tint brush and will leave for around an least to develop! Plus a good thing is you don't need to worry about leaving this product on your hair as it acts as a toning conditioner, so wont do any damage to your hair!

  I must say I love this product as a 'toning conditioner' but that's it because if i was using it as an actual dye, I think I would be disappointed as it can be quite patchy in parts.  
What do you think of L'oreal Feria Pastel Toning conditioners or are you tempted to use it?

Love Kay!
