What happened to my succulents?

5 years ago

The top 2 pictures are when I first received my succulents as a gift (approx 5 months ago now) and bottom picture is today... what happened to them?! I've never owned succulents before... I thought originally that they were getting leggy (taller and less leaves) because there wasn't enough sunlight so I moved them from my office desk to the windowsill, and that seemed to help the smaller blue succulent (the top growth is growing in a bit flatter and more vibrant again) but the succulent on the right, though it's bloomed now, has gotten so leggy and stretched out! Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Are they perhaps cramped in this container?

P.S. what are these types of succulents called anyway?
