Lea Michele has a little something extra to sing about today: as earlier rumors suggested, the actress was just named the newest face of L’Oréal Paris.

“I’m overjoyed and beyond honored to be a part of the L’Oréal Paris family,” the actress tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’m such a fan of L’Oréal Paris not just for all of their amazing products, but for what they stand for. I’m so thankful to be a part of a television show that promotes inner beauty and self-worth. Now to be a part of this amazing family that expresses the same amazing message is such an honor.”

The Glee star joins a talented roster of brand ambassadors, which includes Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani and Eva Longoria, among others. “This is such a dream come true,” Michele says.

“A beautiful woman inside and out, Lea truly exemplifies our brand philosophy, ‘Because You’re Worth It,'” L’Oréal Paris USA president Karen T. Fondu adds in a release. “We are so honored to welcome her as a member of the family.”

The starlet’s first print and television ads will break in early 2013. However, her relationship with the brand began long before this partnership.

“Growing up on stage, I was introduced to makeup at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L’Oréal Paris iconic lipstick,” Michele recalls. “It was instant glamour, and I’ve been hooked ever since.” Tell us: Do you think Michele will make a good L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman?

She’s so annoying!! One more reason for her stare at herself in the mirror and pose.

Wonder if Lea knows she is representing a company whose products contain many cancer-causing and otherwise toxic chemicals. Check out L’Oreal on the Environmental Working Groups ( Cosmetics Safety database.

Well, why not stroke her ginormous ego just a tad more! Maybe with all the extra cash she’ll finally get that honker bobbed.

My personal opinion, of course. She is naturally beautiful and I’m so glad she hasn’t caved to Hollywood’s definition of “beauty.” The Hollywood actresses with nauseating amounts of plastic surgery and no talent have NOTHING on her.

It’s unbelievable to see some of the comments…so much hate. She is a beautiful person that I am sure, like all of us, has good days and bad. She shouldn’t be judged by some actions. If we judged some of you by the comments you posted, I am sure people’s opinion would be that you are shallow and callous.
