Just looking for opinions on which would be better?
I'm going to have a go at painting a dresser with chalk paint,the no sanding/prep appeals to my lazy side.I know Annie sloan has a good reputation? Also any tips on which brush I should buy?

I've used Annie Sloan before. It goes a long way, and truly no prep which is brilliant. I used a roller for the large bits as I preferred the roller finish to a brush, and I know people have used a paint pad too and preferred that. You don't need expensive brushes, just cheap b & q ones are fine. For the finish, I preferred varnish to wax as it's hardier - again it was own brand b & q, nothing expensive.

Not used Autentico but Annie Sloan is excellent. Do easy with clear wax on the top!
