So the only problem I have with lip tars, is cleaning them out of my lip brushes.. I do get them clean if I wash them like ten times in a row with dish-washing soap, but I feel like there should be an easier solution. I currently use synthetic brushes, but I am considering disposable ones if I can solve this problem. Any ideas? Anyone else have the same problem?
Try using an oil based remover to break down the product first, then washing them the normal way you wash your brushes.
I use Dr. Bronner's Organic Castile Liquid Soap for cleansing all my makeup brushes. You can find it in most health/organic stores, but also at Target in the section where they keep beauty products like Burt's Bees, etc.! You get A LOT of product for a very affordable price, and it will last you for months and months and months, since you only need a small amount each time.
I find with OCC Lip Tars I have to apply a little, suds it up in the brush bristles, rinse, and repeat maybe one or two more times, but it completely removes the OCC Lip Tar.

Try using olive oil first, work it into the brush, rinse with warm water and then use a dish soap or shampoo.
I have had the same problem IDA H :o Thank you for posting this up & thank you ladies for the helpful replies.
I use dish-washing liquid and olive oil mixed! Isopropyl alcohol works as a quick-clean solution but if you use it too often it would ruin your brushes.
Olive oil works wonders, I also have found you must wash your brush as soon as your done.
