Try something here I don't know exactly what's available, buster isn;t released yet. I usually don't get serious with testing images until there is a release candidate, they are usually pretty good by that point.

^That is a Buster alpha installer, which will get you XFCE DE when installed. It is not live CD.
Only released versions of Debian have a live image.

There are some live-cd images for buster https://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdima ... so-hybrid/ but I haven't used (or tried) them so YMMV.

You could skip live iso's if you have a writeable usb and just make a bootable image on a usb drive.
I mentioned elsewhere today using a bootable usb. I actually use an ssd with a usb adapter for increases versatility, ie usb or sata. Works fine.

If you prefer the hard way there is live-boot, live-build, live-image-xfce-desktop and the like to create your own. All those are *all.deb's.

All the "Live-Cd" images in the link I posted would not fit onto a cd, the term Live-Cd is used simply to denote that it will run as a live environment and the images should be written either to a dvd or usb device. I usually use Live-cd's (written to usb stick) to test new systems for compatibility but use an installation image to perform the installation (if required) although it is possible to use the live images (it was when I last checked anyway) for installation but some users have reported problems with that.
