    Sure, it's a good description in colloquial of 樣子好殘/憔悴.

    wan and sallow; thin and pallid; emaciated; gaunt; peaky from Yahoo dictionary

    Above words are good for writing a book for 好殘/憔悴, but never use in conversations between friends.

    Hi,

    For "憔悴", you may use the idiom" down in the dumps".

    You look down in the dumps. = You look depressed.

    "You look so tired" doesn't mean " You look depressed".
