The Gendering of Power ?

The cosmetic industry world-wide
is more valuable than even
that of armaments and weapons.

Is the difference between the armourments and cosmetic industries that cosmetics do not add to the machismo of any nation state, whereas the armourments industry does count as a strong export as flagged up by governments as 'economic growth'? I am sure that, apart from the effects of cowboy cosmetic surgeons, fewer people die from the cosmetics industry than guns and armourments, though many aninimals have suffered from both industries....

Well said, Baerz. I particularly enjoyed and appreciated the pun in your spelling "armourments."

I would like to suggest the word 'amourments industry' instead of 'cosmetics industry', while appreciating that the latter is also an 'armourment industry'.
