I finally bit the bullet and gave it a go.
I decided to use the Live Colour as I'd heard they were one of the best ones and choose this colour as i wanted it to be nice and bright.
LIVE Colour Radiant Red L38 Available from Boots £4.89 or 2 for £7.50 on offer at the moment
I'm not going to do a full post on how i applied it as its just the same as any other colour.
Mix, Apply, Wait.
I did cover it with a carrier bag which i always think helps and i left it on just over the recommended 30 Min's.
The good news is it the colour really took well to my hair and it was a really even colour from root to tip which is a huge relief. The colour has left my hair really shiny and feeling soft so all in all a great product.
The bad news is the colour came out a bit too dark for my personal preference. I can see a bit of Burgundy going on which I'm not keen on but its my own fault for not being braver and going for a brighter red shade.
So next time I'm going to be braver and try out the infra red L42 and hopefully that will brighten it up a little.

The Live Luminance range have been specially formulated to work on dark hair which is meant to lighten and colour in the 1 step. I have read a few reviews from other people who have coloured dark hair and unfortunately it has had very mixed reports so if you have coloured dark hair i would make sure you do a strand test first. ( Mine was prelightened by my hairdresser ages ago to strip the colour out )
I'm off to boots to make the most of the special offer as £7.50 for 2 colours is a great deal.
