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?

Congratulations to her but I was so sure they were going to pick Camilla Belle or Amanda Seyfried.

I am surprised and saddened that a vegan such as Lea would work for a company that tests on animals.

Sorry, this girl needs a nose job bad to be modeling makeup closeup in this industry. I wouldn’t be buying anything she’s selling. Jmo.

I don’t really care for her over-acting or her singing voice. And if her face is plastered all over a L’Oreal display, I won’t be going anywhere near it. What an odd choice for L’Oreal Cosmetics.
