Can you tell me why an entire vine my dry up and die?

There could be a couple of reasons why an entire vine on a lipstick plant would dry up and die. First be sure the stem didn't die because it is broken somewhere along the stem line, this commonly happens when plants are being moved. If that’s not the problem increase the humidity and give your plant a little more water. If the leaves of a lipstick plant appear soft and shriveled, give the plant more water. These plants lose green leaves when they are over-watered.
