Sheaffer Skrip red ink is pretty fast drying.  I've not tried it however with any highlighters.  It seems to be made in Slovenia even though it is a US brand.  Don't know if you have ready access to it.  

 

Just also like to point out that dry time and smearing will depend in part also on which nib size is being used as well as the paper.  Less absorbent papers will obviously take longer to dry as well as leaving a greater probability of smearing.  Fine nibs will put down less ink which may reduce dry time as well as reducing the likelihood of smearing.

Noodler's Fox Red. Light and flat but an interesting colour and permanent in every sense of the word. Great for sketching. Didn't notice any slowness to drying.
