For quick cleaning between different color applications, I use Bare Escentuals Quick Change brush cleanser. It's awesome, especially if you don't like to clean your brushes often or don't have time to. You just spray some on a paper towel, wipe the brush across it until the color comes off, let it dry for around 15 to 30 seconds, and then you're good to go. The brush is all ready to use again without getting the previous color mixed in. I've used it on this brush with the shadow pencils. Worked just fine.
For a regular cleaning, I soak all my brushes in BE's regular brush cleanser, lukewarm water, and it gets this off (minus sparkles, haven't figured out how to get those out of brushes from any of my products), so I think you'll be fine with whatever you use.
Try the Quick Change spray. It's awesome, you'll love it for this and all your other makeup too. Shadows, blushes, etc, works on it all. I never used to clean my brushes until I got this stuff. Love it and it's great for when you're playing around with different looks and colors.

I gently wiped my brush on a clean towel when I wanted to blend a different color and found that it didn't transfer much makeup to the towel, nor did it transfer color.
I got this brush about 2 or 3 months ago and I clean with a little dab of my face wash (Clean And Clear Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub or Clean And Clear Daily Pore Cleanser) and message it in and it works grate!!!!!

Urban Decay suggests cleaning their brushes by dipping the bristles in rubbing alcohol and swishing them around. I have the old set of Good Karma brushes and I clean them that way at least once a week (for about 2 years) and they're still in great shape.
