I would like to get some insight about this poem. I am not very good at interpeting poems, so I would appreciate all the help I can get.

I found that another website described this poem as such:

"satirizes the idealization of female beauty and brings out the contrast between the real women and the effect she puts into her beauty."

do you agree?

Pretty much. I thought there was something that guy - Strephon, was it? - found in there that was kind of gross or something. Can't remember, but it definitely struck me as "satirical" when I read it.
