Watch overwatering

I am much more comfortable with cacti than other succulents. I like the plant's looks but it intimidates me

Was expecting a more full looking plant, instead the one I received was very small. It's also got a leaf that I am unsure if it's yellow and dying or if it's just an odd green. One part of the plant looks like it's actually grown at an angle, so it has the appearance of drooping (making it look sick... hope it's not). Also, BIGGEST thing was that during shipment dirt somehow managed to get thrown all over it's fuzzy leaves. That left me cleaning not only this plant, but every plant that came in my order that shipped with this one (all the plants had some of their dirt thrown over their leaves despite being extra wrapped with plastic around the plants but over the dirt). I don't plan on ordering from here again.
