Sparkle vs Shimmer

I've always been a big fan of all kinds of sparkle in my makeup, but lately I'm thinking it's not for me! At 24 and working an un-sparkly job, I'm finding sparkle a bit inappropriate for everyday wear. However, I still love some finely milled shimmer!

For example, Nars Tropic or any of the Night Series colors are gorgeous but quite sparkly! (and therefore not very practical!)

What do you guys think? Are you over sparkle?
