Is it common? Old-fashioned? Mainly US/UK? Does it collocate with some given words?

Yes; No; North America (I don't know about the UK);

Just a smidgen or
Just a smidge or
Just a smitch

Usually used with food & beverages or items such as glue and make-up, which are applied with the tips of the fingers.

All the best, :D
