I've had blue colorant turn a bit purple from too many reheats. I don't know if that's what your case would be or not.
I haven't tried blue fleck colorant. Does it have reddish flakes?

As long as one knows up front that these "dyes" bleed.

Thankfully (at least for me) blue fleck is one of those stand alone colors.  No different colored tails or laminates needed.

Hmmm I was thinking about giving that blue fleck a try.   I hate dyes that bleed im just about done with anything that bleeds.

Anything listed as a "dye" bleeds. Stand alone as a color fine. But you'll need to keep anything done in the color in its own bag. Compartment storage can and often does result in everything on that shelf ruined if the compartment is not lidded and sealed. The oils given off by the bait that bleeds will also degrade other baits it comes in contact with.

I have several bleeding colorants but make baits with them only as needed, a few at a time. They get put in their own sealable bag and the bag hits the trash as soon as its empty.  For the most part I won't use bleeding colorants.
