Female Soldiers Get Makeup and Mags – Annoying or Cool?

I'll admit that I use makeup and enjoy mindless magazines from time to time. Perhaps female soldiers do too and that's why Jill Biden and Nancy Pelosi took part in making care packages that included Cosmopolitan magazine, tampons, eye masks, lipstick, and camouflage pink makeup bags in addition, to the usual beef jerky, raisins, and toothbrushes.

This is the first time the USO has sent "female-centric" care packages and the overly-feminine nature of the products is calling into question whether they are demeaning to the female soldiers — the pink camouflage bag might go a little far in treating these tough soldiers like girlie tweens. Does this rub you the wrong way or do you think it's cool? Feel free to share in the comments what you would want to include instead!
