After six years of experimentation, an era will end Saturday, when Gloss.com is scheduled to cease operations.
Gloss was one of the most prominent of the dozens of beauty Web sites that popped up in the late Nineties. It was acquired by the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. in 2000 for an estimated $20 million, then underwent a dramatic transformation. Lauder struck a grand alliance with Chanel and Clarins and all three shared the site, which was redesigned and relaunched on Oct. 24, 2001.
