Could be different areas - valves, rings, filter. Compression test, oil near the spark plugs, oil on the floor.

there isnt any visible leaks anywhere, and the compression is good... my car does run a bit rich..

Yeah I have this issue aswell, i get a drop or two of oil that drips on my exhaust pipes and then makes smokes in the engine bay.. its a crappy issue to have cuz there could be oil pressure loss + Oil loss.. Be careful cuz i spend 100 bucks replacing my valve cover gasket and still having the issue.
