If you're a tech freak, well, here's what up with the latest trend in technology. Introducing the latest vivo smart phone, the new vivo X5Pro! Thanks to Vivo for having me at the launch which i managed to witness on the vivo X5Pro which was claimed to be inspired by the 'Touch by Beauty'.

With over 1500 people at the event, including celebrities such as Amber Chia, Adam Carruthers and other celebrities who even flew all the way just to attend the launch. I think it pretty much sums up that the launch was absolutely grand as it can be. Not to also mention, that i was held at the KL Convention Centre, in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Before i proceed any further, Vivo Electronics Corps. is a phone brand based in Dongguan, Guangdong, China. Founded in 2009 and since 2011, it made its international mark in over 100 countries world-wide including India, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.

At the launch we had Mr Alex Feng, which mentioned that they focused on their motto to  'Dare to push the limit and continue to bring new surprises' and this has resulted in many industry 'firsts' Since it first launch in 2012, the Vivo X1, followed by the Vivo X3 and not the vivo X5Pro has not only consecutively broke the worlds thinnest smartphone record, but also create the worlds most stunning Hi-Fi sound quality phone. I think the amount of effort was definitely taken into action to produce such an amazing hi-tech smartphone.

We also has vivo Malaysia's CEO, Mr Lewis Zhang who attempted to speak in Bahasa Malaysia which was an impressive attempt to be a part of the Malaysian market as the brand is committed to their targeted image of fun, vibrant and youthful!

The launch was a grand one as spectators, audiences and partners of vivo were there to witness the show of light, colour, sound and amazing performances to celebrate the joyful event.

Through some video presentations, the concept was clearly brought out to achieve the design of vivo X5Pro. This gorgeous piece of technology was inspired by nature and the phone features curves in such a way that it resembles a drop of water. Its double sided with 2.5D glass combined with a metallic farm design and breathtaking finish packed in a slim 6.44mm body made it stand out from the rest.

With such concentration on detail, the vivo X5Pro is impressive in both visual and function. And of course, with such high-tech detail, the price was cheaper than expected, retailing at RM1,599! Thats crazy reasonable for such a smartphone! Definitely a competition to the other smartphone brands within the industry.

What really caught my attention was the features of the vivo X5Pro which comes with a SmartWake, a fully customisable screen gesture feature, and also the focus and central positioning feature of PDAF, with high speed flash! This is an achievement by vivo which managed to create a smartphone with the industry's fastest AF speed. Amazing!

The vivo X5Pro!

Definitely super slim!
But all in all, i think as a youth myself, vivo X5Pro promises modern users that the phone would 'wow' a youth or anyone who is young at heart that they would be satisfied with the latest vivo X5Pro. It runs on the AKM AK4375 chip, with state-of-the-art Hi-Fi sound quality, slim body, high quality camera and also a FunTouch OS feature which still focuses on being a Hi-Fi standard phone.

Experiencing the vivo X5Pro
Being able to experience the phone myself, it definitely did impress me with its features and low light lighting is pretty impressive. Definitely better than my current phone that is, if you know what I'm using at the moment. For your convenience, i shall list down the features of the phone below:

Display: 5.20-inch
Processor: octa-core
Front Camera: 8-megapixel
Resolution: 1080x1920 piels
OS: Android 5.0
Storage: 16GB
Rear Camera: 13-Megapixel
Battery Capacity: 2300mAh

The event ended with some food for those who are fasting which was very nice of them to take consideration to the Muslims who attended, and also who were fasting.

Yummy eateries

CLIO Professional's Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow [REVIEW]

CLIO Professional's Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow, what is this tinted tattoo brow? Well its for your eyebrows, and it stays longer than you can imagine! Was invited to the launch thanks to Muse by Watsons Malaysia, and The Butterfly Project for having me. If you know me well enough, I'm not good at drawing my brows, therefore i would skip the eyebrows and go on with my day. But now, guess i won't have to worry anymore, and here's why:

Introducing to you the CLIO Professional's Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow, the latest innovation to get on point eyebrows which looks natural and stays longer! How cool is that? Im sure we all would have those days where we use our 'brow pencil' which we would usually end up having too thick eyebrows or the alignment is just off.

At the launch, we had a professional make-up artist to demonstrate to us on how to get your makeup done with the make-up at Muse by Watsons and i must say, that the whole process was effortless. I managed to take some photos on the process of the make over, and won't you agree with me that the model looks very natural even after the make-up session?! And thats what make up should be doing, to enhance the features on your face, not make you look like you're someone else.

During the demonstration and the tips that was shared at the event, we managed to get a hands-on session with the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow which amazed me! The reason why behind this invention was because Korean's are always on the go, but they usually groom themselves pretty well, from facials, to skin cares, to make up. And with all these routines to rush with every morning, the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow would save you time on getting your brows ready and fresh in less than a minute!

After applying Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow on model. (Perfect Brows)
The Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow has 2 simples steps to achieve the perfect brows:

The First Step:
You use the Tattoo Pen and draw out your brows. But as mentioned by the friendly staff at Muse Watsons, it would be better if you leave it on overnight and let it dry for eight hours to dry while you sleep. As odd as it sounds, it was recommended to draw them before you head to bed. The purpose of leaving it overnight would be to achieve fuller brows and less artificial looking.

Second Step: 
With fuller brows when you wake up in the morning, next would be to apply the brow mascara. And thats it, easy peasy!

Top swipe: Tattoo pen
Bottom swipe: Brow Mascara
The best part of CLIO Profesional's Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow would be that you have an option to have it thicker or lighter which depends on when you want to draw out your brows with the Tattoo pen. I managed to actually try applying the tattoo pen right before applying the bro mascara and i was pretty impressed with the result. The mascara brow was very easy to be applied and it doesn't clump, which makes you look as natural as you can be. Here are some shots of me trying out the CLIO Profesional's Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow at home.

BEFORE getting my brows done
Lining my Brows with the Tattoo Pen
After lining it with the Tattoo Pen, i used the Brow Mascara to even out my brows
And waalah, no hassle at all! 
As you can see, with 2 easy steps, it was definitely effortless to get perfect brows. Also not to forget that I'm not good at drawing my brows, this isn't half as bad as i would usually draw them on with a brow pencil. The tattoo pen stays very long and it would stay for around 2 days if you don't remove it with make up remover, so yes, it even stays after showering a few times. Perfect for on point brows when you're going for a swim ;) HAHA.

CLIO Professional's display table
Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow, RM 95.30
This product comes in three lovely shades which would be Dark Brown, Soft Brown and Earth Brown to suit your hair tone. The one which i was using in my trial at home was in Soft Brown, and it doesn't affect me in any way! I would suggest that the lighter tones makes you look more natural and if you prefer more defined brows, then go ahead and use the darker tones.

Now, as for the price, since its shipped all the way from Korea, its slightly on the high end side. Priced at RM95.30 each, but its of course the latest innovation of drawing your brows. So if you want to keep up to date with the latest trends, or always on a busy schedule, this is definitely recommended as it saves time! I went to Korea recently and spotted their store at Myeongdong too! Hello CLIO Professional's.

Club CLIO Professional's, at Myeongdong, Korea.
So yes, it is a definite Korean brand if you're a fan of Korea. Or if you're planning your trip there, why not drop by the store itself. But fret not, because you can also get it at Muse by Watsons store in Sunway Pyramid for your convenience.

There are other collections from Clio in Muse by Watsons as well, so do make sure you check them out if you happen to be there.

The CLIO Kill Cover Liquid Founwear Cushion, RM169.50
Kill Brow Conte Powder Kit, RM95.30
Before i end my post, we had a group photo at the launch with the lovely, friendly Muse by Watsons crew, with blogger friends, Mira Cikcit and Anis Farhana. Such an amazing event with such great company.
