Why the Bluish Purple Photos with Certain Lenses?

Noob question, but...

why is it some lenses render images that seem to have a bluish purple tint? And some don’t?

It’s like Purple fringing in a way, but it starts to affect skin tones more as well as the high contrast edges that you normally see with purple fringing. You get a very purple-ish pink Hugh on skin and a cooler look than I would normally care for.

ive noticed this in all sorts of lenses in every category...cheap, vintage, modern, expensive...

An example of this would be the Viltrox 85mm f1.8 as well as the Rokinon 85mm f1.4. Also, the Voigtlander 65mm F2 Apochromatic....

then there are some that render beautifully like the voightlander 35mm f1.7 ultron, the Rokinon 12mm f2, and the Takumar 50mm f1.4 just to name a few.

its just much more work to correct these problems with photo editing softwares since it’s not just a de-purple fringe button.

Would a UV or Polarizing filter help with this? It’s not a white balancing issue either.
