To state that such vanity is inherently female, is to totally disregard the example set by nature. It is, invariably, the male that puts on the flamboyant display, not the generally drab female.

A little care doesn't do any harm though. I see nothing wrong with using face moisturiser or hand cream. But the moment my partner would start using my mascara or even worse, buy his own, man, we'd have a problem

That is a good point but I am not sure if this is the case in higher mammals, where size and strength is more important.

This is applicable to most higher mammals. We don't select our mates along those lines anymore, but taking the examples of lions and apes perhaps, it is the skill in the fight and general stamina, that ensures receptive females. And age of course.
