After buying a bottle of Diamine Sparkling Shadows, I had a quick thought before using it..

Before using inks like this with gold glitter, you are supposed to shake the bottle to evenly displace the glitter, but how does this apply to the ink when it's IN the pen? At some point the ink will settle once again in the pen, so will I need to somehow mix up the glitter again, or not? If so, how should I do it?

You could tilt the pen backwards and forwards to distribute the glitter before writing, but picking it up and uncapping it should move it around quite a bit anyway.

I had o many concerns trying out my first glitter ink. And I finally settled on putting it in a stylographic pen. A 3rd tier no name but very similar to one of the old inkographs. It worked really well. I did not shake it, but every now and then I gave it a little back and forth twirl. It wasn't really necessary. The ink and glitter came out consistently without issue. I think I may have found a good use for my stylographic pens.

Or, have a look at Brian Goulet's suggestions:
