A. Did you sleep late last night?
B. How do you know that?
A. I saw your eye-bags.

Is there a word called “eye-bag”, which means black circle around eyes? Thank you!

    Thank you, You little ripper.
    But which one is caused by lack of enough sleep, "under-eye bags" or "dark circles under the eyes"?
    According to Wikipedia, both can be caused by lack of sleep.

    Periorbital dark circles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A lack of sleep can cause paleness of the skin, allowing the blood underneath the skin to become more visible and appear bluer or darker.

    Sleep deprivation - Interrupted sleep cycles are common causes of eye puffiness.
