By not showing I once again extrapolate that the scene itself was left ambiguous and made for our own interpretation just as the ending would as well. Nothing to say it did work, nothing to say it didn't, and that's the whole point really because you can't be sure because we don't know or can't be sure exactly
There is something to say it didn't work, its actually pretty obvious, he had the code. And since he is shown having the code a minute or so later, it's pretty easy to say on substantiated grounds that the Geass had no affect. The only claim you have is 'it was ambiguous'. The progression is pretty simple:

Geass from Lelouch but no visible effect -> Charles shoots himself -> Laughs at Lelouch at the mind fucking he gave him -> Shows his code -> Says Geass and Guns have no affect. Okham's Razor says: He had the Code, hence why the Geass is never shown completing.
