It's normal for the calles to fall back a little from the 4.2V target, usually 4.18 or 4.17V.. But it's unusual on a quality charger for any cell to be higher than 4.2v and also unusual for any cell to be as low as 4.14v.

A few questions:
  • I take it you are balance charging and not fast charging?
  • What are you measuring the cell voltage with?

If by any chance you are using one of those cheap little cell voltage checkers then that's the cause of the variation. They are useful little gadgets but not especially accurate.
