To me dry is less than 50F/10C dewpoint, moderate is 50-61F DP and humid is 62F+. Anything 67 or higher I'd dub "oppressive".

To be really uncomfortable, these higher dew points above must be accompanied with temps at least 80F/27C or higher

Anything below 30C / 86F is not humid, regardless of dew point for me.

For temperatures above 30C

Dry: <15C
Comfortable: 15C-20C
Humid: >20C

dry: Below 60 (though it doesnt bother me if the dewpoint is very low i only begin to actually feel the moisture when it reaches around 60)
moist: 60-70
humid: 70+
humidity nor dryness for the most part doesnt bother me though i like it around 65-70 ideally

I wouldn't go with the dewpoint. 10°C with ur 90% is cool but humid, not dry!
I'll go with the relative humidity.

ur below 50%: dry
ur 50%-75%: moderate
ur above 75%: humid
