Stampin' Up has several options:

You could use Shimmer Paint. It is very easy to work with and you can even stamp with it. They have three color options: frost, champagne and platinum.

I just did a blog post using it on direct stamping:

You could also use the new Illuminate Shimmer Watermark pad. I have a blog post showing the illuminate pad on black paper which shows it best but it looks great on other colors as well. And looks great on white on white!

Stampin' Up also carry Crystal Effects which is a liquid glittery effect. And they carry Dazzling Details in Silver Sparkle.

The first two are your best bet. One is an ink pad and very easy to use. One is a little pot of paint (you can see it in the fancy favor blog post in one of the pictures). The shimmer paint can be mixed to make your own mister if that interests you. Both can be applied to stamps, both can be sponged on.
HTHs!
