    There is a noun материалист or материалистка, which pretty much denote people who only care about tangible assets, money or profit in particular. I suggest you just replace материалистичные девушки with материалистки. Anyway, google seems to have some examples with материалистичные люди, not many though, but I suppose you can go along материалистичные девушки if you want, doesn't sound well to my ear though.

    Материалистический goes well with inanimate objects: материалистические желания, материалистический подход

    BTW, разбалованные, but it's usually about kids being or have been spoiled by their parents, I suggest you can use it if you bring up who or what spoiled them or if the proper context is due, but a more general word for this that doesn't really require an explanation of sorts would be избалованные.

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    The coreword is "материя" so only мате*** cases are valid.

    This is pretty much like the difference between materialistic and materialistical.
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.
