SUMMARY

  • Vista bento heads offer a lot for your 2,000L – 24 built in animations, 4 moods, bento eyes, three skin brands with 5 tones each and a lot of customisation options.
  • Omega compatibility! Something that I never thought I’d really care about (if you’d have asked a year or two ago) has now become so important to me, not so much for skin options (because we know they can vary in quality) but for makeup! I’m a total smudgey eye make-up junkie, and if it weren’t for having bought my faves in Omega appliers, I’d be forever buying new eyeshadow – so a great feature!
  • You can tell that Vista wasn’t an early adopter of bento and/or mesh heads. By this I mean, they’ve taken some of the best features of their competitors (Catwa/Lelutka etc.) and given it their own spin in their HUD design and features.
  • I like the makeup collection that comes with it personally, I like my eyeshadows a little more smudged, and ARTE’s make-up blends quite well when I take the blend down on them, which is nice.
  • The ability to save your own makeup/skins/tattoos and the like is a bonus too. You can create these using the SLUV (because it’s omega compatible) and upload them using the personalise HUD, which is great.
  • The animations are quite nice, I really like them as animations but they can be a little over exaggerated as ‘poses’ (that is, when paused for photography). I’d love to see some more photography-centered animations/poses included or available as add-on packs.
