The reaction is pretty much instantaneous when it happens.
I've put a few toys at risk and come to the conclusion that permanent damage is unlikely - hasn't happened on Tantus, Fun Factory or Ophoria, anyway - can't recall about Vixen (NOT O2 or VixSkin - these I haven't tried and you should keep them away from silicone lubes!)
I have noticed very difficult clean-ups and some temporary reactions that go away overnight. Subjectively it seems as though silicone lube isn't quite as effective on silicone toys as it is on other things, but I'd take that with a grain of salt, since I was wondering what the lube was doing to my toys at the same time.
Condom-wise - it could work if you were very careful. When I use toys I do notice that the lube tends to work its way all over, so I think that in most instances the lube would work its way around the condom and onto the toy anyway, or at least the base.
